The Moroccan Minister of Interior, Mohamed Hassad said that the Moroccan government will not authorize the cultivation of cannabis in the country. "The cultivation of kif and its commercialization are and will remain illegal," he said, when a representative from the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM) called for the legalization of kif cultivation. The representative said that cultivating kif will compensate for the lack of government investment in northern Morocco.
