Colombia on pace to become leading producer of medical cannabis

Colombia is notorious as the world’s largest supplier of cocaine – but it is now positioning itself as a producer and exporter of another drug.
Marijuana is becoming increasingly legal around the world.
The government believes Colombia is well placed to become a leading producer of medical cannabis.

    There’s so much weed being grown in my local area it’s smells like weed in vast areas and is even contaminating ground water. You might think it’s cool until it takes over your local area.

    Pablo Escobar and the Rodriguez(Orejuela) Brothers, have entered the Chat. Followed closely by Pacho Herrera, and Chepe Santacruz… Hey!!! They just want a little piece of the PIE!!!

    This should have never been illegal in the first place End this stupid war on drugs. If it’s okay to sell tobacco and alcohol. Then it’s okay to sell cannabis for non medical purposes.

    There you go….

    The added temporary interneuronal synapse connections thanks to cannabis and especially the psychedelics are literal wiring upgrades to our brains that can be made permanent through normal neuroplasticity learning. These new connections give parts of our brains new access to both our current sensory perceptions, heightening them and making us more appreciative of everything we experience, while also giving parts of our brains new access to memories making even our memories heightened with literally new mental perspectives on them (explaining ‘flashbacks’). It’s like a physical empathy, giving our brains the ability to have new and more diverse perspectives on everything, past and present.

    These substances widely have the reputation as creativity-enhancers but I think actually they’re empathy-enhancers creating new perspectives, giving artists greater ability to imagine how a wider audience will perceive their work while it’s in progress, making it more creative as a result.

    Legalize, release, expunge and give industry advantages to the minorities most harmed.

    I’ve heard great things about many items grown out there

  11. Audio Maverick on May 15, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Just imagine all the weird conversations that crop is going to produce.

  12. Bongo Fury on May 15, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Gee, I wonder if foreign producers will be required to pay all the extortionate fees and jump through through all the environmental and administrative hoops that American producers are required to do to stay on the right side of the law.

    And secondly, who thinks they will be affected at all by America’s current supply chain disruptions?

    Lol is this a joke story? Have you ever heard of Canada?

  18. Ned Ludd on May 15, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Good for Colombia.

  19. Silas Nash on May 15, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    I hope every country accepts it as medecine again.

  21. JT on May 15, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    They are spraying harvested buds with water?? Let’s help mold?? You need some help with your products after it’s grown to preserve the terpenes and THC. It shows how little these large production companies just will never beat the quality or a small scale craft grow.

    Investing in Crypto currency should be on every wise individual’s list as it has made alot of people in the USA millionaires.

  24. Janice Childress on May 15, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    How do avid smokers of weed avoid Cancer. Please make and market an affordable substitute for tobacco cigs, with filter no THC💚

  25. Amanda Woods on May 15, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    I hope the small Farmers market will be able to access the economic stability that rewards their families with profit sharing and not new
    " Corporate " Drug Lords who continue their exploitation and subjugation of Columbia’s Citizens.

  26. Saucy suishi on May 15, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Hopefully all old strains instead of what people are expecting in local dispensaries

  27. Dennis Harold on May 15, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    I used Weedborn CBD products and healed without any problems.

  28. Newton Lawrence on May 15, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    The only solution to the climate change,legality of the cannabis usage 🌍 wide

  29. Mnd0vrMnky on May 15, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    They’re just growing plants. They’re making it seem like only pros can do it.
    This is called fascism. Gw pharma has patented some anti cancer component of cannabis.
    And now ppl will have to pay, or rather the nhs.
    I think Australia took over, but uk used to be the worlds largest exporter of cannabis.

  31. Fernando Starnes on May 15, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    The Narco-dictatorship of ext. Right in Colombia, violates the rights of the street citizen, assassinates social leaders, does NOT sanction corrupt politicians and lies to the international community.

  32. johny broadbelt on May 15, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Nope , grow your own.

  33. Steve M on May 15, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    They should call it cannabis, marijuana is a slang term

  34. Diana SUNSHINE Wulf on May 15, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    no thanks

  35. South African Cannabis Extraction on May 15, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Clever Leaves the Colombian facility featured here has also exported high THC flower from its Portuguese facility to the USA 🇺🇸.

    This is heaps good. Columbia can become more developed but the world needs to accept that recreational use will soon be in international interests to de-criminalise but even access to high quality cheaper CBD oils for cancer and other uses is a must as the oil is expensive and realistically we need to get this life changing chemical to lower income people worldwide. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but go Columbia i am all for this and the Cartels should moderate and move towards legal crops but US use of Cocaine has always fueled demand for Coke so what do we do? Should Cocaine be de-criminalised for harm reduction because Columbian people suffer the most in the current model. What do other people think about proper global drug reform policies? I think we should try legalising everything and treat like alcohol or cigarettes. We should do a 5 year trial making harm reduction the aim. Sort the ethical challenges out later. If it fails it fails but we have never tried it. We should test the theory then do some studies into crime and harm rates. Peace

    That’s the solution for this important subject, not improve the illegal market and violence.

  39. Darrel Kenn th on May 15, 2022 at 7:52 pm
