Chamazu Investment, a company that specializes in health services, has urged government to explore the medicinal benefits of marijuana.

Company Managing Director Charles Zulu, who is also Luangeni Member of Parliament said marijuana has for a long time been demonized despite having healing powers to treat ailments ranging from cancer, arthritis and epilepsy among others.

Mr. Zulu whose company has applied for a license to grow and export marijuana to Canada, said the company has put in enough security measures to ensure that the plant does not get into wrong hands.

“We are appealing to the Ministry of Health to look into our matter. Once operational, this project is expected to benefit more than 3,000 ordinary Zambians in terms of job creation”, he said.

Mr. Zulu added that, the world is changing and countries need to be innovative and try out new things.

Chamazu is partnering with African Medical Services Limited, a South African company in executing the project which is currently pending government authorization.

  1. Why is this Managing Director Charles Zulu ‘labouring the obvious’ in his explanation and avoiding the crux of the matter on Marijuana. No well-informed person is questioning the medicinal aspect of marijuana at all. So, what is he trying to cover up?

    The crux of the matter is:- What fool-proof formula are is he going to use to ensure that the VULNERABLE citizens who are mostly unemployed youth are DISCOURAGED from smoking his ichamba, Lubanje, mbanje, cocaine, cannabis, etc or whatever term you want to describe it? How have successful Countries in safe-guarding their vulnerable citizens achieved this, other than merely outsourcing the cultivation (hence transferring the problem) to other Countries, e.g. Jamaica? Food for thought.

    To merely say “the company has put in enough…

    To merely say “the company has put in enough security measures to ensure that the plant does not get into wrong hands” is as empty a slogan as Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya’s “encrypted cultivation process from start to finish”. It makes for good soundbites but nothing beyond that. Guys, for those of us…

  6. It should not have been banned in the first place. Look at all the non productive years we have wasted. Only problem is some DEC officers will become obsolete.

  7. With Cannabis Sativa industrialization can be areality.
    1. Ships & Sailors
    Ninety percent* of all ships’ sails (since before the Phoenicians, from at least the 5th century B.C. until long after the invention and commercialization of steam ships, mid-to late-19th century) were made from hemp.
    *The other 10% were usually flax or minor fibers like ramie, sisal, jute, abaca, etc.

    2.Textiles & Fabrics
    Until the 1880s in America (and until the 20th century in most of the rest of the world), 80% of all textiles and fabrics used for clothing, tents, bed sheets and linens,* rugs, drapes, quilts, towels, diapers, etc., and even our flag, “Old Glory,” were principally made from fibers of cannabis.
