Earlier this week, the Taliban regime announced a future partnership with the company Cpharm, for the cultivation and production of Afghan cannabis products.
The Afghan Interior Ministry has published messages on its networks that reveal an agreement reached between the country and Cpharm, where possibly more than US$ 400 million will be invested for this purpose. With such a project coming to fruition, the promise is that employment opportunities in the country will increase.
The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan a few months ago, shortly after the US military left the territory. Qari Saeed Khosty, a Taliban spokesman, announced the deal on Twitter a few days ago.
Cpharm is so far the only company in the country that is legalized to explore the market. The idea is that creams and spices are manufactured and marketed in the country.
The alleged agreement between Afghanistan and Cpharm has brought a company of the same name to the fore. Cpharm Australia needed to go public to clarify that it has no agreement with the South Asian country after several press vehicles reported the false information.
Cpharm that is leading the agreement with Afghanistan is a German company.
