The land is under lease.

On the question why this municipality is becoming a Mecca for hemp production, the municipality replies that it has a lot of quality arable land that often remains uncultivated, so the process of granting land lease for greenhouses is smooth.
Close to these marijuana plantations, on the territory of Sveti Nikole Municipality is the MAM company’s plantation, with Vitse Zaev’s, Prime MInister’s brother, capital.
