Greece May Soon Legalize Medicinal Cannabis

The production of cannabis in Greece for the legal consumption of medicinal purposes may soon be passed in Parliament.

Health Minister Andreas Xanthos has stated that measures are underway to approve such a bill and that once approved, doctors will be able to prescribe medicinal cannabis, which would be packaged and produced in Greece.

Greece would be one of several countries in Europe to legalize cannabis for medicinal purposes as Austria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain have already done so.
