About Bulelani “Gratitude” Magwanishe

We can be grateful to Gratitude for firmly committing the Justice Department to the speedy implementation of the National Cannabis Master Plan (NCMP). The parliamentary Justice Committee chairperson fully supports the idea of a South African cannabis economy and warned MP’s that there was a danger that the fledgling industry could fall into the hands of big multinationals. South Africans should benefit, he said, but should wake up before it’s too late. We wholeheartedly support Magwanishe’s sense of urgency, but there are very legitimate concerns that the NCMP is flawed and does not address key issues raised by stakeholders. The last thing we need is the NCMP to be a rush-job that creates more problems than it solves.
