The government of Ukraine supported the legalization of medical cannabis

The Government of Ukraine has supported the bill on the legalization of medical cannabis, the country's Ministry of Health reports.
The department expects that the measure will expand the possibilities of treating certain diseases, including cancer. According to the ministry, medical marijuana relieves the course of more than 50 pathological conditions, in particular, post-traumatic stress disorders resulting from military operations; neurological diseases; diseases of the digestive tract and chronic pain of neuropathic origin.
In addition, the Ministry of Health notes that cannabis-based drugs are used to relieve symptoms in cancer patients.
The ministry indicated that the bill implies the introduction of strict control in this area: from licensing the activity of growing cannabis for medical purposes to labeling each batch of products and dispensing medicines only on prescription.
The Ministry of Health expressed the hope that the Verkhovna Rada will support the document. In the summer of 2021, parliamentarians considered a bill to legalize medical cannabis, but it did not pass the first reading.
“We understand the negative effects of war on mental health. We understand the number of people who will need medical treatment as a result of this impact. And we understand that there is no time to wait, & mdash; Minister of Health Viktor Lyashko wrote on his Facebook (the parent company of the Meta social network is recognized as extremist in Russia and banned). He opined that medical cannabis— not a competitor to narcotic drugs and has no pronounced psychoactive effect.
Separate forms of medical cannabis are used for treatment in Israel, Canada, some US states and other countries.
