Parliament of Isle of Man approves new cannabis cultivation and exportation laws

The production and exportation of cannabis products from the Isle of Man is to be legalised after politicians approved a change in the law. Tynwald unanimously backed the new rules, which would permit a licensed person to produce cannabis-based products, including for medical use.

But using the drug on the island will remain illegal under the new rules.

MHK Lawrie Hooper said the new industry could be a "key contributor to the Isle of Man’s post-Covid economic recovery". Under the update to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1976, licences will be issued by the island’s Gambling Supervision Commission and will cost between £250 and £45,000, depending on the type.
