African countries are now seeing the economic value of legalizing cannabis. According to a UN survey, over 10,000 tons of the plant are already being produced in the continent each year which could translate to billions of dollars in the legal cannabis market.

Although governments in African countries still haven’t legalized cannabis, Lesotho has become a pioneer by becoming the first in the continent to grant a license to grow medical cannabis. This could signal the beginning of a more prosperous time for Africa as they embrace liberal policies.
