Cannabiz Newsletter – 04/12/2020

Welcome to the world of African Cannabis!

A multi-billion-dollar industry strung between the poles of corporate capitalism and gun-toting warlords; a gloriously wild landscape of opportunists motivated by good or greed or both (see Swazi King controversy).

The emerging legal African cannabis economy is one of smart operators, of men and women who are thinking big and seizing the opportunities with both hands. See what the likes of Louisa MojelaBrian van Rooyen and Jon Paul Doran are doing in South AfricaLesotho and Zimbabwe; it’s also populated by zealots and crooks, but by and large the legalization of cannabis opens the doors to new ways of doing business (See 5 take outs on African investment).
