The Big Debate and a General Election
With an election in 3 months a discussion on cannabis will almost certainly come up. Is middle NZ ready to talk about cannabis and will our politicians listen.
The Government are wary of fully supporting iHemp because of the connection to cannabis and there fear they will lose votes.
Well here is the news, the cat is out of the bag. The medicinal cannabis community have done a massive job highlighting the medicinal benefits to the public. The food and fiber industries are getting ready to scale and the iHemp industry is growing year by year.
If the public were listened to, all the political parties would realise that there are votes to be won by supporting the iHemp “goods news story”.
It ticks all the right boxes, employment creation in the regions, export potential, builds capacity, encourages R&D and education.
If they go further and accept the law was set up to control THC, as a psychoactive drug, then this has clearly got to help the acceptance of low THC iHemp as just another arable crop.
Please note the NZHIA is only interested in Low THC industrial hemp.
