The Irish Farmers Association (IFA) is urging the Irish Government to introduce legislation that would allow farmers to produce medicinal cannabis. The IFA is seeking a meeting with the Department of Health to discuss allowing the production of medicinal cannabis. The Sunday Times reports that Fintan Conway, sent an email to Marie Egan, in January this year seeking a meeting between the two bodies to discuss how hemp could be used to produce medicinal cannabis. Conway told Egan in the email that Ireland had the potential “to become a major player in the developing international market for industrial hemp, CBD oil, and medicinal cannabis.”
