Cannabis for an economic high?

Greece Hopes Its Economy Can Get High From Medical Weed

Investors in medical cannabis projects are focusing on Greece, where a warm, sunny climate and potentially favorable future legislation could help the government deliver on a promise to pull the country out of a seven-year economic crisis.

Growers have expressed interest in pumping more than 1.5 billion euros into projects to build greenhouse parks for the cultivation and manufacture of cannabis, Evangelos Apostolou, minister of rural development and food, said in an interview. That would give Greece a share of a global market the government says could be worth 200 billion euros in the next 10 years.

Been watching the ITV program "Gone to Pot", as well as the comic turns it has been quite interesting for the scientific/medical side of it.
