After two weeks of delay, the Council of Government approved today, Thursday, a bill related to the legal uses of cannabis in Morocco.

It should be recalled that the draft law aims to establish a legal framework that allows the development of the use of cannabis in medical, cosmetic and industrial fields, in line with Morocco’s international obligations.

It also aims to help exploit the opportunities provided by the cannabis market and attract international actors in this field.

Moreover, the law seeks to establish an effective monitoring system with the aim of preventing any change in the course of cannabis and its derivatives towards the illicit market, and the transformation of illegal and environmentally harmful crops into legitimate, sustainable, income-generating and employment-saving activities.

On a different note, the Ministry of the Interior stated that national studies concluded that Morocco “can exploit the opportunities offered by the global market for legitimate cannabis, given its human and environmental qualifications, in addition to the logistical capabilities and strategic location of the Kingdom close to Europe, which is the most popular for cannabis products.”
