Malawi has become the most recent country in southern africa to legalize the production of medical cannabis and hemp to manufacture  industrial fibers.

The parliament passed a law that ensures the legality of cultivation and processing for these uses. However, he did not agree to decriminalize personal use.

Malawi becomes the most recent African country to lose the laws restrictions related to this plant. The first one was Lesotho, in 2017, Zimbabwe and in the meantime, South Africa has decriminalized personal use and domestic cultivation.

"We are happy that the right decisions are finally being made to revive the country's economy," the director of Ikaros Africa, one of the two companies that would plant hemp in central Malawi, told Reuters.
