About M Ayanda Bam

Bam has been one of the most instrumental figures behind the scenes in getting cannabis reform off the ground this year. He pulled together the Private Sector Working Group to assist government with developing the National Cannabis Master Plan and was instrumental in persuading the Presidency to establish a cannabis desk within its office. Bam’s biggest success in the cannabis space is bringing stakeholders together to prioritize what needs to be done to get the new economy going and taking that to Government. Priority Number 1 has been unanimous: Government has to amend the necessary laws to create an enabling framework for allowing the commercial trade in cannabis and related products.
