South Africa: Finance Minister calls for Full Legalization of Cannabis as a “Taxable Product”

South Africa’s Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has called for the full legalization of cannabis. He says cannabis should be a “legal, taxable product that generates money for the fiscus, creates jobs and brings illegal farmers into the economic mainstream.

The Minister was in private conversation with Cannabiz Africa publisher Brett Hilton-Barber near Tzaneen in Limpopo, welcoming the fact that the National Cannabis Master Plan (NCMP) is likely to be presented to Nedlac this week. Nedlac is a forum of key economic stakeholders that Mboweni was instrumental in setting up during his time as Labour Minister.
