Two years ago a law was adopted that formally allowed cannabis to be cultivated for medical purposes however the drug list has not been revised nor have rules been adopted to regulate that matter and without that, it is not possible to obtain a license to grow cannabis, Mrak Taritaš told a news conference in the parliament.

“Let’s finish this so that cannabis can finally be produced and sold for medical purposes in Croatia,” she said, recalling that the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs adopted a recommendation in late 2020 from the World Health Organisation under which cannabis and cannabis resin should be removed from the list of dangerous drugs that cause strong addiction.

Without disregarding the negative effects, the WHO decided that cannabis has a positive effect in reducing pain and nausea and alleviating symptoms of anorexia, epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, Mrak Taritaš said.
