Holland. Dutch politicians give permission for commercial cannabis growing
The politicians in the Dutch Parliament today voted to go ahead with controversial new plans to allow large scale commercial cannabis growing for the first time. The large scale growing will allow coffee shops to buy cannabis from a regulated system rather than the current black market arrangements. Although cannabis growing will remain technically illegal, special licenses will be granted by the Minister of Health for the large scale grow operations. So long as the growers stay within the restrictions of their grow license then they will be free from prosecution.
