Zimbabwe just became the second country in Africa to legalise cannabis cultivation
Phillip de Wet , Business Insider SA

Zimbabwe has created a legal mechanism to grow dagga.
Five-year licences will be available to produce and sell cannabis for medical or research use.
Zimbabwe follows close on the heels of Lesotho, which started issuing similar licences in September.
The Zimbabwean government this week published a licensing regime that will allow the legal cultivation of cannabis, state-owned newspaper The Herald reported on Saturday.

Growing mbanje, as dagga is commonly known in Zim, will be legal for research and medical use under the new regulations, Statutory Instrument 62 of 2018, "Dangerous Drugs – Production of Cannabis for Medicinal and Scientific Use Regulations".

Zimbabwe has been considering such partial legalisation for the last eight months.
