The government “only supports extensive and mechanized hemp cultivation” despite previously declaring hemp in the national interest and important to family farmers, the Paraguayan Chamber of Industrial Cannabis (Cannapy) said after a recent shipment of seeds intended for small farmers was held up by customs. Officials from the National Plant and Seed Health and Quality Service said the seeds must go to the Paraguayan Institute of Agrarian Technology (IPTA) for evaluation and testing before a listing in the country’s official plant registry.

Well known as the biggest producer of illegal marijuana in South America and a major supplier of weed to Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay, Paraguay’s cannabis economy has traditionally been in the grip of drug traffickers and corrupt politicians. Observers have said the issuing of first-ever medical cannabis licenses in February 2020 and later approval of personal cannabis cultivation for therapeutic purposes mark positive steps toward legitimacy for the industry.

Small farmers waiting

Listing in the plant registry is key for the distribution of seeds to family producers, whose crop cycle starts now. Cannapy said the seeds should be cleared as they they are already registered for inclusion in Paraguay’s catalog of approved hemp varieties by the exporting company. That matter aside, the seeds should be expedited ex officio by the Minister of Agriculture, to promote the crop and in the national interest, Cannapy said.

Hemp stakeholders in Paraguay say the government is favoring large business interests to the disadvantage of peasant farmers in contravention of earlier decrees that call for the support of small producers.

Paraguay’s Ministry of Agriculture (MAG) last year approved a request from Healthy Grains SA, a farming and agriculture consulting firm, to import 17 seed varieties from Hungary, France, China and the United States. The company is conducting trials in fields under IPTA authorization to assess which varieties will best adapt to the country’s soil and climate. The government has officially recognized another association, the Paraguay Industrial Hemp Chamber (CCIP), and three hemp operating licenses have already been granted.

The proposed bill that is on the President’s table includes, on the one hand, the modification of article 30 of Law 1340/1988 on illicit traffic in narcotic drugs, so that the possession of cannabis with medical purposes should not be punishable. On the other hand, the reform also includes the modification of article 33 of the same law in order to decriminalize the growing, cultivation, harvesting and processing of marijuana plants when the individual or legal representative performs these activities in a property authorized by the National Anti-Drug Secretariat (SENAD) and holds a medical certificate revised and validated by the Ministry of Public Health stating that the person suffers from a condition that is treatable with cannabis.

As in Spain, the Paraguayan government has started this reform process not to protect consumers but to open the path to pharmaceutical companies. Law 6.007 was promulgated in 2017 and established several scientific research programs about medical use of cannabis and its derivatives. Last year, in September, the Paraguayan Ministry of Health opened a public bid as part of the process to select the companies and the number of production licenses that will be granted. Cannabis will then become a treatment option for selected patients nationwide and a breakthrough for the country’s pharmaceutical industry. Before this, prescription of medicinal cannabis was only intended for the treatment of cases of epilepsy and Parkinson disease that did not respond to conventional therapy. By February this year, the Ministry had already granted twelve licenses, one of them to Pharma Industries S.A., the Paraguayan subsidiary of the American pharmaceutical giant Abbot Laboratories. Another license was granted to Cannapar, also based in Paraguay, allowing the cultivation of an area of ​​200 hectares of land. Green Flower, a consortium made up of twelve partner companies, Swiss Pharma and the Paraguayan pharmaceutical company Comfar Saeca were also among the license winners.

Mamá Cultiva Paraguay is an organization established in this country by Cynthia Farina with the support of the Daya Foundation based in Chile. Farina couldn’t find any effective treatment in conventional medicine that would work for her daughter, who suffers from refractory epilepsy and was six years old at the time. “We are mothers of children who have refractory epilepsy, cancer and other health conditions and who did not find answers in traditional medicine, so we decided to turn to alternative therapies with medical cannabis,” she explains on his Facebook profile.

“The reason for this change is that we need to differentiate between a medical user and a drug trafficker. Actually, at the time being and according to the current law, we are all criminals,” declared Cynthia Farina, president of Mamá Cultiva Paraguay, when asked about the law that is being subject to modification.

This growers association is one of the key organizations that promoted the draft of the new bill. The new legislation yet to be approved by President Abdo will allow that “anyone who might need to use some type of cannabis therapy can have the guarantee that he or she will not to be persecuted by the anti-narcotics forces, the police or anyone,” adds Farina.
