More than 50 new licenses granted by the Regulatory Agency

The National Cannabis Activities Regulatory Agency has granted new licenses to carry out legal activities related to this plant, an informed source told MoroccoLatestNews.

These are 50 new licenses granted to more than 20 players in the sector, said the same source, stressing that a recent meeting of the advisory committee responsible for studying license applications made it possible to give authorization.

Among these twenty actors who received the license, there are two cooperatives responsible for processing the product, marketing and exporting.

The source also said that in total more than a hundred licenses have been given by the same organization and that for around 35 operators who will be responsible for the marketing in Morocco and abroad of derivative products.

Field work by agents from the agency’s regional offices would be done to facilitate the procedures for creating a cooperative and legal procedures for farmers.

It is expected that the agency will launch its website next week, which will make it possible to file license applications through it without having to travel on site.

As a reminder, the National Agency for the Regulation of Cannabis-Related Activities is considered a governance and control body that oversees the proper application of Law No. 13.21 relating to the legal uses of cannabis.

The law stipulates the granting of licenses for nine activities, that of production and agriculture exercised by the farmer originating from the region and in contact with the land, from one of the three codified regions namely Chefchaouen, Taounate and Al Hoceima.

The second activity concerns the production and exploitation of seedlings, the import of seeds and seedlings, or the export of the latter, and these are activities carried out by people and not by companies. The rest of the activities are carried out by businesses, namely those related to the processing, transport, marketing and export of cannabis and the import of cannabis-based products.
