Rwanda legalizes the cultivation of Marijuana for export


Rwanda has legalized the production and exportation of cannabis and the Minister’s Committee has put in place some guidelines that will be adhered to by the Rwandans farmers.

The crop product will be exported to Europe, America among other parts of the globe for medical use.

However, Rwanda’s Minister for Health Dr.Daniel Ngamije has stressed out that only the licensed farmers will be permitted to cultivate cannabis, adding that restrictions to smoking it are still in place.

Rwanda joins other countries that export, such as Zimbabwe, South Africa, Zambia, Lesotho and Malawi. The plant has a foreign market worth $150 billion by 2019.

Rwanda has followed Uganda’s footsteps that legalized the deal in 2019 and have earned Uganda millions of dollars. In 2019, the European Union included Uganda in the list of the countries that qualified to sell cannabis to Europe.
