Cannabis Regulatory Authority (CRA) has called for the creation of structured markets for cannabis growers in the country.
CRA Board Chairperson, Boniface Kadzamira, said this on Monday in Lilongwe during Cannabis Licence holder’s Engagement meeting for Central Region growers.
He said growing of medicinal and industrial hemp would be most effective if there are structrured markets in place so that growers are able to sell their products.
“We need to find our own markets within or outside the country. We need to work with the government to develop such markets instead of depending on the promises by investors willing to buy our products,” said Kadzamira.
He added that universities and research institutes should start working on the local variety to see how effective it could be in the country since it would be in the same family of medicinal hemp.
