How Green is the Rif? Implications and Opportunities in Sustainable Agriculture

Well, all agriculture is environmentally damaging in some respects but,
compared to most other agricultural choices, cannabis is a very ecologically
sustainable crop. I understand that cannabis has been grown in these
mountains for between three and four hundred years – this has sustained the
local human communities for all that time and the sustenance of that,
through the generation of employment, filters it’s way throughout Moroccan
society.

More recently though, the cannabis industry in the Rif has grown to
international proportions in order to supply the demand in Europe and
elsewhere. Despite this, it’s impact on the local environment has been
minimal and with a little planning and consideration the industry could turn
itself into an example of excellence in agriculture.”
