Stop pressuring us to release marijuana report – Govt

Filed under: Breaking News |

Government says it will only release the findings of a study that was conducted to assess the possibilities of Zambia legalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes at an appropriate time.

Dr. Kennedy Malama, the Ministry of Health Permanent Secretary for Technical Services says stakeholders must stop pressurizing government to release the findings.

He told Hot FM News that legalizing the use of medicinal marijuana is a very delicate issue that requires government to take time before a decision is made.

Government last year constituted a committee to undertake a study to ascertain the possibility of legalizing the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
