While in Zimbabwe, I had an hour-long conversation with the attaché to the President. During our conversation I outlined many economic and regulatory related issues associated with deploying cannabis and industrial hemp in Zimbabwe and sub-Saharan Africa. It appears that many of the recommendations we discussed are being adopted there.
In my New Frontier Data blog from this weekend, we put together a few data points on Zimbabwean cannabis. My analysis on Zimbabwe got picked up by major press outlets this morning.
