Fields Of Green for All, a Johannesburg legalisation non-profit, took a road trip down into Lesotho for Cannabis News Network for the real story behind ‘Africa’s First Country to Grant Medical Marijuana Licenses’.
Lesotho has the record of being the only country in the world with an average height over 1000 meters and is a slow drive through the mountains.
It’s a geographically challenging and economically impoverished place to live. The WHO estimates life expectancy at just over 50 years.
‘Lesotho is completely surrounded by South Africa so we wondered where the product would be going to. The minute it were to cross a border by road, it would become an illegal substance.’
