About Jerry Mathews Matjila
Our man at the United Nations threw the country’s weight behind cannabis reform at the historic 2 December vote. SA was one of the few nations that supported all five WHO recommendations to begin creating a new international regulatory framework for cannabis. Ultimately, we got what we wanted with medical marijuana being accepted, but had South Africa and Morocco not broken ranks with other African countries, the motion would have failed. Matjila has sent out a clear signal that SA is part of a progressive global wave of reregulating cannabis and that will instill investor confidence.
