November 23, 2022 from El Planteo
In Spain, the Ministry of Health is drafting the law that will regulate medical cannabis in the country.
As reported by Hemp, the Spanish government announced that the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) is working on the issue, after a deputy from the political party Ciudadanos asked a parliamentary question.
"The AEMPS is developing a roadmap for the appropriate regulatory fit and feasibility of these recommendations, guaranteeing the quality of these products (extracts or standardized preparations of cannabis), so that their use contributes to the health of patients who may need them and to the protection of public health " replied the Government, after being asked about regulatory advances and the roadmap regarding the medicinal use of the plant.
