In Morocco, training sessions will be organized for the benefit of cannabis growers for the development of this sector. A step forward after the adoption of Law No. 13.21 on the legal use of cannabis for medical and industrial purposes.
There will be no more trained cannabis growers on the job. They will be trained on the techniques of growing the plant, its processing and packaging, but also on the constitution and management of cooperatives, says Assabah. The goal is to have a skilled workforce capable of obtaining good product quality and better performance. There is also talk of creating cooperatives with a minimum of 15 farmers.
These cooperatives will be able to carry out commercial transactions with pharmaceutical laboratories and the dedicated national agency. They will therefore be the single point of contact for companies and the Agency. Farmers will also be able to open bank accounts and obtain credit for the modernization of their production tools. Already, several hundred people have registered on the open register to follow these training sessions which will be launched in the coming months.
