Fifteen months after Law 30681 legalized the medicinal use of cannabis, it is now official in the Inca country.
“The regulations cover guidelines and procedures for research, farming and production limits, importation, and the marketing and sale of medicinal marijuana and its byproducts. It also outlines the procedures for medical prescriptions, including a registry of patients/users”, Peruvian Times informed on Saturday.
Other countries that already allow the medicinal use of cannabis are Canada, Australia and several regions in the United States. In Latin America, there is Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay and Brazil.
This regulation will allow wider use of marijuana and a broader control in the country.
“Medical research into marijuana shows it is effective in cutting down on seizures in people with epilepsy, helps ease pain, nausea, and loss of appetite in people who have cancer and HIV, and eases multiple sclerosis symptoms such as muscle stiffness and spasms, pain, and frequent urination”, according to Peruvian Times.
