Around 6,000 Swiss citizens will soon have legal access to adult-use cannabis after officials approved a new pilot project this month. But patients say they are still struggling to get the medicinal products they need.
The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health has given the go-ahead for a fifth pilot project monitoring the sale of adult-use cannabis products in another step towards policy reform.
Known as the Safer Cannabis – Research In Pharmacies Trial (SCRIPT), the study was authorised by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the Cantonal Commission of Ethics and the Ethics Commission of Northwestern and Central Switzerland last week.
