Calling on cannabis: Hikurangi Group on how it plans to use marijuana to grow Ruatōria from the ground up

In our new series covering the budding cannabis market, Idealog has reached out to companies who are poised to launch into what is predicted to be a billion-dollar market in New Zealand. Standing at the forefront is social enterprise Hikurangi Cannabis, but it won’t just be another marijuana plant: it plans to be a forestry of health, sustainability, local community and Kaupapa. We talk to Manu Caddie, managing director of Hikurangi Enterprises, (HEL) about his plans to enrich the community by restoring jobs and Maori values on New Zealand's East Coast.
