A special agency will be
established to issue license for cannabis
cultivation for medical purposes. Minister of Internal Affairs Giorgi Gakharia
said Wednesday after the Cabinet meeting that the license fee and terms of the
competition will be determined by the agency.
“A special agency is to be set up to identify the specific licensing conditions and issue licenses for various activities, including production, growing, processing, etc. This will be a strictly regulated activity, which will have its own regulator where the toughest and effective control mechanisms are open. The agency will determine the license fee, the competition types, etc.," said Minister Gakharia.
