The bill No. 13.21 on the legal use of cannabis was adopted by a majority in the House of Representatives, Tuesday in second reading.

Adopted by 61 votes to 25, the text was sent to the House of Representatives for a second reading after amendments in the House of Advisors.

Drafted in harmony with the Kingdom’s international commitments, Bill 13.21 aims to subject all activities related to the cultivation, production, processing, transportation, marketing, export and import of cannabis and its products to a licensing system.

Comprehensive scientific studies have been prepared by the Ministry of the Interior focusing on the feasibility of the project, its socio-economic and environmental potential, as well as the assets and challenges that Morocco should meet to succeed in this large-scale project.
