The entity Moses Kotane Institute of Technology has conducted a study which shows that there are endless opportunities to use the cannabis industry to stimulate agriculture and many other sectors.”

 

She further pointed out: “Some call in dagga, marijuana and others call it weed. To the AIDS or cancer patient, marijuana is the plant that fights nausea and appetite loss. To the nutritionist, its seed is second only to the soybean in nutritional value and is a source of cooking oil and vitamins.”

 

“To the paper or cloth manufacturer, it is the plant that provided much of our paper and clothing for hundreds of years and produces four times more fiber per acre than trees. To the environmentalist, it is the plant that could greatly slow deforestation, restore robbed nutrients by other crops. Our speakers today we elaborate more about Cannabis.” The Acting Premier- MEC for Economic Development and the Leader of Government Business Said during the event.
