Amal Movement MP Michel Musa Wednesday said a legal cannabis sector in Lebanon should be managed by a state enterprise rather than by private companies to ensure proper oversight.Musa last week introduced a draft law co-sponsored with Amal MP Mohammad Khawaja that would see cannabis cultivation legalized for medicinal and industrial purposes.Lebanese Forces MP Antoine Habchi previously introduced to parliament a draft law for cannabis legalization on similar grounds, though with private companies running the sector and the Health Ministry charged with oversight.
