Portugal: Six Ministries and two months to add a tenth of THC
March 3, 2023 from CannaReporter
The industrial hemp rules have been changed once again today with the publication of Ordinance 64/2023 to update the THC limit to 0,3%, as it had been established by the European Commission in December 2021. The amendment by the Portuguese government ignored the requests of farmers, traders and the entire hemp sector, proving to be quite conservative: it limited itself to transposing, with delay, the European directive, updating only one paragraph. The measure should have come into force on January 1, 2023, but we are in Portugal: the Ordinance was signed by six Ministries and it took more than two months to see the light of day.
