The Argentine government has finally laid out a framework for its medicinal marijuana industry

It also states that a fine of up to 100,000 pesos ($2,421) will be handed out to anyone that
breaches the regulations. INASE has the power to inspect any cannabis production operation to
check they comply with the legislation.
In March 2019 INASE added further statutes to the cultivation legislation giving its own
regulators control of every aspect of the cultivation process to prevent any wrongdoing or illegal
growth or sales.

INASE is, in effect, building a log book of all activities carried out by each company permitted to
