NL Times reported a total of 149 cannabis growers applied to take part in the Dutch government’s experiment with regulated cannabis cultivation. Currently, applications are being assessed, the applicant grower is being evaluated and the government is consulting with the municipalities where the prospective growers want to settle. The government hopes to appoint its ten growers by early 2021. Once the scheme launches, coffeeshops in those municipalities will only be able to sell cannabis grown by one of the government’s designated cultivators. The goal is to see what effect a regulated cannabis chain has on public safety.
