CO: Cannabis Associations calls for allowing the export of dried flowers

Colombian cannabis associations ask for the green light for the export of dried cannabis flowers, an industry that could help the economic revival.

As reported by Infobae, the draft of a decree that authorized the export of dried flowers was released in February of this year. However, this approval was postponed.

In dialogue with W Radio, Rodrigo Arcila, president of the Colombian Association of Cannabis Industries (Asolcanna), stated: “We were on the verge of having all the authorizations. It was a work arranged with the Ministries of Justice, Health, Commerce, and Agriculture. The consultation terms in which the draft came out already contained all the agreed aspects. However, we are surprised that there seem to be problems with the acceptance of the dried flower. "

Meanwhile, the Colombian medical cannabis union asked President Iván Duque "to advance what is pertinent to get Colombia to enter this industry ." They also indicated that they are available for "clarification of doubts regarding the work in this sector.

But what did the draft of decree number 621 say? In summary, the decree establishes that the Government of Colombia will authorize the export of the dried flower of cannabis for commercial purposes and so that companies do not discard the surpluses in each of their processes.
