#PODCAST: President Ramaphosa: Government intends to open up and regulate the commercial use of Industrial Hemp

This follows a landmark Constitutional Court decision which legalised the use of cannabis for specific purposes. The sale of dagga is still illegal, but in the State of the Nation address, Ramaphosa says ordinary people will be given an opportunity to make money.

IFP Chief Whip Narend Singh says this is a victory for the regulation of cannabis, a victory that could benefit all citizens...
