It's like bringing a modern hybrid GMO wheat crop to a place where Third World people have growing a
thousand year-old wheat Landrace that is adapted to that area and polluting it forever.

All in the name of $$$ and stupidity. When the Hell are people going to learn.

Ok, did anyone actually read the entire article? It clearly states that cannabis is illegal in Nepal and until that changes the shipping of seeds to Nepal is not possible. It was basically a speculative idea at best. Besides it was penned for True North Seed Bank which is black market here in Canada as are all other seed banks.

Come on man, read the article. They think they can sells seeds in Nepal for $10 - 15/seed. That's a weeks pay for a Nepalese farmer. It ain't gonna happen. And if weed is legalized there it's game on but TNS won't be a big player. But, someone should be collecting the existing seeds because places like Morocco, Columbia and all of Southeast Asia are all being hybridized even though cannabis is still illegal there.

smilley, cannabis is not illegal in Nepal as, among other uses, it's a food overthere. Ganja and charas use is illegal though, except on Shivaratri celebrations. Importing a couple k's of seeds shouldn't be a real challenge and being black market doesn't prevent seedbanks to do business and spread their production all around the world, so the scope of this article goe beyond "what if", it's more like a plan, and it reeks of both arrogance and ignorance.

Irie!

Sorry, man.

Prohibition
In 1973, Nepal canceled the licenses of all cannabis shops, dealers, and farmers, under pressure from the United States and the international community. However, personal cultivation and use were unaffected, and cannabis commerce continued illicitly. The loss of $100,000 in government revenues caused disruption, and later in the 1970s attempts were made at crop substitution.[1]

10$ a pack of seeds in Nepal?? LOL!! Yup, as I said, it reeks of ignorance.

So true about Morocco, do you have any reference about South East Asia? Which countries would that be ? I guess Cambodia is part of it with its legal commercial scene?

Cannabis as dope, yes, but not as food

Today, it is only legal to smoke hashish during Maha Shivaratri.[4]

The penalties for cannabis in Nepal are minor because of the corruption in Govt.
