South Africa's AfriAg seeks UK medical cannabis producer license

Sept 17 (Reuters) - AfriAg Global Plc has hired a law firm to help with the application process to become a licensed medical cannabis cultivator and producer in the UK, the South African haulier said on Monday.

Britain proposed in July to allow doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis starting this year and several countries, including Germany, Italy and Denmark, already allow the prescription of medicinal cannabis and Canada recently became the second country in the world to fully legalise marijuana.

AfriAg, which supplies supermarkets and wholesalers with fresh African fruit, said the “highly regulated” application process would take some time and it might bring in other partners to assist with the process. (Reporting by Noor Zainab Hussain in Bengaluru; Editing by Amrutha Gayathri)
