Dutch marijuana growing experiment runs into more delays
October 27, 2022 from Dutch News
Marijuana growers who have been selected to take part in the government’s controlled cultivation trials have told the cabinet that they will not be ready to start early next year as the government intends, the NRC reported on Thursday.
Nine of 10 firms have written to ministers about the problems and some have spoken to the paper directly about the issues, the NRC said.
The experiment should have begun to 2021 but is now due to start in the second quarter of 2023. But the growers now say the end of next year is a more likely date.
