Poland became the latest country to allow marijuana to be used for medical purposes this week.
The Independent reports:
Under new regulations that came into force on Wednesday cannabis from imported plants can be processed at Polish pharmacies – as long as it has been logged with the country’s Office for Registration of Medical Products.
Pharmacists are already prepared to make the drugs, according to the Polish Pharmaceutical Chamber (PPC).
A spokesman said: “Given the fact that there are nearly 15,000 pharmacies in Poland, an overwhelming majority is authorised to make prescription drugs – that’s around 90 percent.
“It is estimated that up to 300,000 patients could qualify for medical marijuana treatment.”
