The decision to legalize medical cannabis will be made, but not hastiliy, Mykhailo Radutsky, head of parliament’s committee on national health, has said.
“We believe that medical cannabis should be available in the country, but we do not want to rush with this issue … We do not promise to do this in turbo mode, we will study very carefully so that, God forbid, not to make mistakes. Do not expect a quick decision from us, but there will be a solution, and this initiative is definitely not bad for the country,” Radutsky said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday.
He recalled that several bills on the use of medical cannabis are under consideration by the relevant committee.
According to David Arakhamia, the leader of the Servant of the People faction, the legalization of medical cannabis is a very good initiative.
“We are talking about medical use with very high state control. This must be done because two million people in Ukraine feel pain every day,” said Arakhamia.
