“Wee” bill finally passed

Parliament passes Wee Bill

The Narcotics Control Commission Amendment Bill 2023, which makes substantial changes to the production of cannabis for both industrial and medical uses, has been approved by Parliament.

The modified measure allows the Ministry of Interior to award permits for cannabis growing, allowing this plant to be used for a number of advantageous purposes.

This outcome comes after the Narcotic Control Commission Act’s provisions allowing the production of some varieties of cannabis for medical and industrial uses were declared illegal by the Supreme Court.

The court argued that these clauses violated Article 106 of the Constitution of 1992. Despite the Office of the Attorney General filing an appeal, the Supreme Court narrowly decided 5-4 to reject the review motion.

Members of Parliament underlined the value of growing certain varieties of cannabis during the legislative debates around the bill’s revision.

They emphasized the advantages that may result from utilizing cannabis’ characteristics for commercial and therapeutic purposes.

The Ministry of Interior will now be in charge of providing permits for cannabis production following the passing of the Narcotics Control Commission Amendment Bill 2023, easing the expansion of this business and creating opportunities for further investigation of its potential.
