The bill regulating the production of cannabis for medicinal use went well in the Senate commissions and the illusion of a smooth passage through Congress and the results are encouraging San Juan. The fact is that when the law is regulated the province will become one of the pioneers in making and being able to sell cannabis-derived products.
Last Wednesday, July 7th, the commissions of Agriculture, Livestock and Fishing; Budget and Finance; and Internal Security and Drug Trafficking approved the text, presented by the ruling party. The positive votes came from both Frente Todos and Juntos por el Cambio and only one senator from Río Negro, Alberto Weretilneck, opposed it. With this support from both political sides, it is expected that in the Upper House the results will also be positive. The session will be in the middle of the week and from there it may pass to the Chamber of Deputies.

There is political will, as stated by several national officials, to get it out of Congress quickly and to regulate cannabis
With this good legislative augury, the private companies and the public company Canme are already moving in the province so that everything is ready for the productive law. Currently, there are two international companies working in the site and, according to the vice-president of the state-owned company Ariel Lucero, negotiations are still in progress with other companies.
For the time being, the private companies are only authorized to carry out research and they are taking on labor and starting with the work to prepare their lands. Before the end of July they estimate that all of them will be setting up the first greenhouses and planting the first varieties of cannabis, which do not have psychoactive effects but can only be used medicinally.
If the law is passed, Lucero explained, it will not be difficult to convert the enterprises that are now doing research into producers for commercialization. International investors are waiting for this novelty and hope that once the legal framework is in place, the number of interested parties will increase.
The two companies that have already received their plots are weeding, building the base works for the greenhouses, and making the electrical connections. In the meantime, Canme SJ is making progress in the perimeter enclosure of the property. Medical cannabis is giving work to San Juan people before it can be produced for export, when they believe that the favorable economic impact will be very important.
