Spanish government says NO to medical cannabis
The platform ConSalud.es showed yesterday that the Spanish health government is against the use of medical cannabis. Not enough evidence is the basis for this decision. It should be mentioned that several countries have already successfully legalised medical cannabis, and more than 4000 studies on this subject can be found on the Pubmed website.
Spain is following a restirctive course although this country counts about 1000 private cannabis clubs and 7 companies (Aurora, Canopy, etc) are allowed to grow medical cannabis in Spain through exclusive contracts.
This makes the decision made by Salvador Illa even more incomprehensible, as according to him synthetic products are available, but these are usually not affordable for patients. One gram of pure THC costs around €800 in the pharmacy.
