Government yet to take decision on cannabis growing

By Moses Ndhaye.

Government is yet to decide on whether or not to license Globus Industrial Uganda -Ltd to grow cannabis in Uganda.

According to the state minister for investment Evelynn Anite, the company applied for a license to start growing medical cannabis for export in Kasese district.

The Minister says although most of the stakeholders in the sector, such as the agriculture sector, have allowed the company to grow this crop in Uganda, government is hesitant to issue a license before right laws are put in place to regulate the growing of cannabis.
