About Chris Hart

The controversial former Standard Bank senior economist has taken cannabis investment to a new level by offering investors sweet tax breaks at the same time as championing community-driven projects. He is chairman of Impact Investment Africa which is backing an organic cannabis grow op near Richards Bay; Hart may have been hounded out of his old corporate job for political incorrectness but one could say his heart is in the right place in trying to find a business model for the cannabis industry that works for both capitalist investors and community growers.
