The Malay Mail reports….The government must muster the moral courage to openly discuss the pros and cons of approving the use of hemp and medical marijuana in Malaysia, Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman said today. Malaysian United Democratic Alliance’s (Muda) head, when debating the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) in Parliament today, said these steps must be taken so Malaysia does not get left behind in the industry, which he asserted could be worth over RM400 billion in the next four years. “I hope the government can table a working paper that is transparent, sincere, which is driven by data and science concerning the pros and cons of sanctioning the hemp and medical marijuana industry. “I say this because there are more than 40 countries today where approval for hemp or medical marijuana has been given. The current market is worth about RM60 billion and is expected, within a period of four years, to exceed RM400 billion.
