The Rainbow country, South Africa will soon become the first African country to legalise cannabis sativa (marijuana) for strictly medical purposes.

In a letter sent to Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), who have been championing the legalisation of the Medical Innovation Bill, the Medicines Control Council (MCC) revealed that the proposed guidelines on cannabis production for medicinal use would soon publish.

‘I wish to confirm that our office is working on a number of guidance documents to be shared with the public relating to the manufacture of cannabis for medicinal purposes’.

The Medical Innovation Bill was first tabled by late MP Mario Oriani-Ambrosini who died of lung cancer in 2014, the same year he introduced the bill in Parliament seeking for the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal purposes, due to his health.
