Macedonian Parliament Legalizes Medical Marijuana

macedonia marijuana

The Macedonian Parliament Health Committee gave its approval on Tuesday to amend the law on controled drugs and psychotropic substances, that would allow the use of cannabis products for medicinal purposes.

“The need to change this law comes from the requests of patients who want to have the option to use naturally derived cannabis products, under strict supervision. The amendments would allow patients to have access to strictly controlled products, improving on the current situation when some patients use unverified products without any supervision regarding the dosage,” said Stojanco Stojkovski, State Secretary in the Health Ministry, which proposed the changes to the law.

Representatives from both the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party and the opposition SDSM party welcomed the proposal. Saso Vasilevski from VMRO said that he has had a relative diagnosed with cancer who was using a cannabis derivative bought on the black market, and said he supports the legalization of similar products. Alen Georgiev from SDSM said that this change should have been made sooner.

A recent opinion poll suggested that 70 per cent of Macedonians support allowing the use of marijuana products for the treatment of cancer and other serious diseases.

So far, 13 European countries have legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Most of these countries also don’t allow storefront dispensaries or notable business opportunities in general.
