Sunday focus… …the international picture… …Part two: Lithuania…

“The Lithuanian Parliament voted almost unanimously to consider a change in the country’s drug policy. The suggestion was put forth on Nov. 9 and the vote determined if the subject would be taken up on Dec. 12.

…92 MPs voted in favor of debating the issue, with one abstention, and none opposed.

In Lithuania, cannabis is scheduled as a List 1 drug, which prohibits marijuana for medical use due to the ‘harmful consequences to human health,’ as the law states. Other List 1 substances include heroin, MDMA, cocaine, psilocybin, and opium.

If the amendment is approved after the December debate, it would allow the medicinal use of any List 1 drugs, as long as the substances pass strict safety tests and are scientifically proven to be medicinal substances.

The chair of Lithuania’s health committee showed support for the initiative after the vote, stating she believes the government will be able to ‘ensure that Lithuanian patients achieve safe and effective scientific evidence-based medicinal products’.”

TRUCE wishes prospective patients in Lithuania all the best as they bode to join one of the world’s fastest growing clubs… …nations with legal medical cannabis.
