The Netherlands wants national cannabis

In July, farmers across the country will be able to apply to legally supply the famous coffee shops with native hemp.

The government had given the green light in 2018 for a large-scale experiment, authorizing ten municipalities to legally cultivate cannabis. The aim of the experiment is to measure the effects of cannabis cultivation on crime, security, public order and health. “Applicant producers who wish to participate in the cannabis experiment can apply from July 1, 2020” until 28, the ministry of health said in a statement. The government plans to take approximately six months to select ten producers according to specific criteria: a candidate’s project must include the production of at least 6,500 kg of dry hemp and a range of ten different varieties of hemp or hashish. According to this government plan, which has received the approval of the State Council, the municipalities concerned will supervise over several years the cultivation of cannabis and its distribution to coffee shops, which will be able to sell it to customers.
