Portugal’s Parliament Legalizes Cannabis as a Prescribed Medicine for Patients

Last week, Portugal’s Parliament voted upon the right for its citizens to receive and gain prescriptions to cannabis-based medicines from their doctor. The move is expected to help reduce patients dependence on pharmaceutical grade synthetic opioids in Portugal.

More and more countries involved in the European Union have decided to join the seemingly worldwide movement to legalize cannabis as a medicine. Country’s like Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Turkey have already legalized the medicinal use of cannabis.

The final bill did not include the right for Portuguese citizens to grow cannabis within their residence, a topic that was debated in parliament for months. The new bill now lays in the hands of Portugal’s President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza.  If approved by the President, doctors throughout the country will be capable of prescribing medicinal cannabis and patients will be able to fill their perceptions only at pharmacies on July 1, 2018.
