Ghana Legalizes The Cultivation of Cannabis

Ghana’s minister of interior can now issue permits for the cultivation of cannabis, but only for industrial purposes – the plants will have Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) limits. THC is the principal psychoactive constituent in cannabis, that is, the part that makes you “high”.

The law legalizing cultivating cannabis for industrial and medical uses was approved by Ghana’s parliament, allowing the West African country to participate in the multibillion dollar worldwide market, Bloomberg reports.

This major milestone, according to the report, follows the Supreme Court’s intervention, which prevented the legislation’s passage by ruling that section 43 of the statute was unconstitutional.

Parliament then passed the Narcotics Control Commission (Amendment) Bill 2023, and it’s now waiting to be enacted.

The government wants to make use of cannabis’ industrial potential and investigate its usage in the creation of fiber and seed with controlled growth.
