One article made brief mention that with passage of the law, a very limited number of growers are being permitted but no details were offered as to who the growers are, nor how they were selected. This limited and very select group of growers will conveniently have a government sanctioned monopoly which should prove lucrative for them.

It makes one wonder if the Herald's reporters should be directing their attention at the patients and the doctors, or rather at the growers and the politicians who selected them?
