Parliament has given the nod to Ntchisi North member of Parliament (MP) Boniface Kadzamira (Independent) to draft a bill whose objective is to distinguish the criminalised Indian hemp from medicinal cannabis through cultivation, production and possession.

Kadzamira moved a motion for the House to allow him to draft the bill following vigorous consultations which have proved that cannabis can improve the country’s economy if well regulated and legalised.
