As is well known, marijuana has been used as a natural medicine to treat different diseases in different products, either vaporized or in oils for a long time. In other countries it is already legalized and pharmaceutical companies prepare marijuana products for medical treatments.
A long time ago in the north of the country, the police raided a laboratory that supplied marijuana oil to patients with serious diseases. As a result of this event, the government presented a bill to legalize the medical use of marijuana.
On Monday, October 16, 2017, the initiative in the National Defense, Internal Order, Alternative Development and Anti-Drug Commission of the Congress of the Republic was unanimously approved.
Bill 982/2016-PE was approved “authorizing the production, importation, commercialization and safe and informed use exclusively for medicinal purposes of products derived from Cannabis.”
At the same time, it is still not legalized. If it continues in these steps it will be soon. All the media in the country and newspapers give this great news as if it were already a decree legalizing cannabis. We will still have to wait some time for it to be official. On that day, many people suffering from cancer, epilepsy, and parkinsons, among other serious diseases, may be beneficiaries of cannabis as a medicinal use.
It should be noted that the crops will be monitored by the State, by chemical pharmaceutical laboratories, and legal entities. “It would be an associative crop. Legal persons that would be formed for the exclusive accomplishment of this activity with all the control and vigilance of the state “.
So me must take into account all these safety measures will give a medicinal value to cannabis. But, also bear in mind, that this legalization is only for medical use but not as addictive drug use.
