Ukraine Health Minister supports legalization of cannabis for medical use

Ukraine Health Minister Uliana Suprun has called for the legalization of medications that include cannabis and suggested to sign the supporting petition.

The patients' access to cannabis based medication will become the implementation of their right to medical care.

Censor.NET reports citing Suprun’s Facebook page.

"The use of narcotic substances for any purpose, even medical, is a complex issue. Therefore, it is easy to manipulate, even when it comes to vital health care," Suprun warned.

"Medical cannabis helps to ease the suffering and normalize the patients’ well-being in a number of serious medical conditions," argued Suprun.

"I hope that #ЗупинитиБіль [#StopthePain] campaign will not be attacked by populists and demagogues," concluded Suprun and called for signing petition supporting legalization of medical cannabis.
