Unveiling North Macedonia’s Cannabis Industry: Challenges and Prospects 

In 2016, North Macedonia peacefully gained independence from Yugoslavia and embarked on legalising cannabis for medical use, aiming to bolster its economy. While the move attracted investment due to the country’s cost-effective resources, issues with the current law, including concerns about licensing fairness, pose obstacles to international market access for some. Nonetheless, North Macedonia’s cannabis journey under the Prime Minister’s guidance holds promising potential.

A vigilant eye on cannabis news

  • Thailand’s fluctuating politics and unregulated industry notwithstanding, investors are piling in. Competition, oversupply and expected new regulations around the drug’s cultivation and sale may still change that. 
  • Mexico’s marijuana farmers are fighting a losing battle to go legal with the current government. This video report form Al Jazeera explains it all. 
  • While the German law still has to be discussed in the Bundestag, there is very little doubt that it will move forward. Here is a look at what happens next and who the winners and losers are.  
  • The government of the Bahamas has unveiled several bills aimed at legalising marijuana for medical and religious purposes. Licenses for research, testing and manufacturing would be awarded to companies that are at least 30% Bahamian owned.
