Enacted by the country’s federal government on October 17, 2018, the Cannabis Act outlined three certainties at its onset: that legalization should lead to the eradication of so-called “illicit” cannabis; that adult use would not equate to unbridled cannabis access and consumption of cannabis; and, finally, that the provinces would carry the weight of interpreting many of the bill’s many nuances.
Despite the perception that Holland is a place where unbridled consumption of cannabis is permitted, drugs of all stripes are outlawed in the Netherlands. It has long been illegal to produce, sell, import and export drugs, and even cannabis policy is governed by unexpectedly tight controls. Somewhat ironically, cannabis has become in recent years more debatable than it has in the last 20 years in Holland.
Israel may not be the first country to come to mind when one thinks of the history of cannabis research. But for decades now the small Middle Eastern nation has, by all accounts, been at the forefront of the discussion, pushing the bounds of cannabis education by embracing the inherently contentious topic.
The future of industrial hemp has never looked brighter. Introduced in 2018, the U.S. Farm Bill is one of the most significance pieces of legislation to ever greet the cannabis industry. With the passing of the bill, billions have been allocated in subsidies for American farmers, whose markets were bolstered by rejecting stricter limits on food stamps, and hemp was legalized at the federal level.
