Medical Cannabis Now Legal in Croatia

croatiaWith the Regulation on Medical Marijuana Act taking effect today, October 15th, the possession and distribution of cannabis-based medicines is now legal in Croatia, an Eastern European country encompassing more than a thousand islands.

The new law allows those with illnesses such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and HIV/AIDS to purchase cannabis medicines such as teas, ointments and capsules from a state-licensed pharmacy. Although the law took effect today, no pharmacy is currently distributing the drug; initial sales are expected to begin sometime next year.

Unfortunately the new law doesn’t allow for cannabis to be cultivated by a individual not licensed by the state to distribute to pharmacies.

In Croatia, the possession of small amounts of cannabis is typically handled with just a simple fine. Cultivation and distribution, however, is a felony.
