Morocco has reportedly established a regulatory agency to oversee the country's cannabis cultivation for medical use.

The decision was the outcome of a meeting on Thursday under the chairmanship of Interior Minister Abdelouafi Laftit and involved the board of directors of the National Agency for the Regulation of Cannabis Activities (ANRAC), who approved the body's organizational structure and budget for this year.

The agency will also set up the first processing and manufacturing cooperatives, composed exclusively of local growers.
