Military monopoly on medical cannabis production prevents Italian patients from accessing cannabis

September 5, 2022 While Italy is both one of the first and largest markets for medical cannabis in Europe, new data has revealed the permanent inability of its system to “meet the needs of patients”.

Italy’s medical cannabis market has been growing in double digits for several years, but the country continues to see its military hold a monopoly on national cultivation.

With the military’s domestic production failing to grow since 2019, this monopoly is strangling the growth of one of Europe’s largest medical cannabis markets, which is now the second largest in Europe in terms of patient numbers.
