The government of Zambia has passed a bill to legalize hemp. The measure calls for establishment of licensing for farming, processing, storage, import/export and distribution of hemp, and provides for regulation of hemp research. A second cannabis bill, which also passed, will establish a similar framework for marijuana for medicinal, scientific and research purposes. The government said both sectors could be a boon to Zambia’s economy.
