“There is a huge sector in our economy ... any country that forgets about it will be left behind; that is the cannabis industry,” said MakhuraMakhura’s announcement followed President Cyril Ramaphosa’s state of the nation address’ (Sona) speech, in which he endorsed regulating the commercial use of hemp products and the formulation of a policy that supports the use of cannabis.
