Sri Lanka's Health Minister plans to cultivate cannabis for export
Thu, May 12, 2016,

May 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Minister of Health and Indigenous Medicine Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said that the government plans to take steps to cultivate and export cannabis for medicinal purposes.

The Health Minister the government has received a proposal from Western countries to cultivate and export cannabis for the production of Ayurvedic medicine. He said the government plans to implement the proposal.

The Minister made these remarks addressing an event held in Colombo to introduce new products of the Sri Lanka Ayurvedic Corporation.

Pointing out that no science can ignore the technology and the traditional medicine also should use the modern technology, the Minister said production of pills should be started for the traditional Ayurvedic medicines

The Minister said he expressed the views on cultivating cannabis since in the past there was a shortage of opium (Abin) used for traditional medicine and steps were taken to import opium from India.

He further said that the traditional Ayurveda system has medicines for some diseases for which there are no Western medicines.

The Minister said cannabis is vital for the production of Ayurvedic medicine and he has put forward a proposal to cultivate them in Sri Lanka.

I can think of few more "smoking" plants that can bring much more money Wink

I say get rid of all the low yielding weed plants ( like Tea, Rubber, Coco)
and go with the real weeds that can earn billions Razz



Actually if they do that it will solve plantation problem for good Smile
