Singh, Mr N to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry
What are the full relevant details of the steps he is taking, together with the Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, to ensure that the commercial cultivation of hemp in the Republic is legalised? NW948
The response provided by my predecessor in August 2018, to a question by the Honourable Member, is still relevant.
I will request that updates be obtained from a task team led by the Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development (“DALRRD”) looking at regulation for hemp and that further work be done to explore the commercial cultivation of hemp.
