The Health Ministry is calling on the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to support the legalization of medical cannabis.

The Health Ministry has written this on Facebook, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The legalization of cannabis for medical purposes is primarily a medical issue, not a political one! The solution to the issue of reducing pain for seriously ill patients is at stake. The use of drugs containing cannabis is allowed in many European countries. We call on the Ukrainian parliamentarians to support this bill," said Deputy Health Minister Oleksandr Komarida.

It is noted that on the basis of clinical studies, there is enough statistical information accumulated that confirms that cannabis is effective in the treatment of more than 50 pathological conditions.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, at its extraordinary President-initiated meeting on Tuesday, July 13, the Verkhovna Rada will consider bill 5596 on the legalization of medical cannabis.
