Ministry of Health in FYR Macedonia has drafted a bill on the legalization of the use of cannabis for medical purposes. According to this ministry, this bill is expected to be enacted in February 2016.

Based on the bill, cannabis will be produced and used only in FYROM and will only be produced by legal persons.

Minister of Health, Nikola Todorov said that once this bill is approved by the government, public debates will take place to hear proposals or criticism by stakeholders.

So far 13 EU countries have allowed the use of cannabis for medical purposes. /ibna/
