Cannabis, in Veneto sarà distribuita in pochi ospedali e, per ora, solo ai malati di sclerosi multipla
Approved the liberalization of cannabis as a medicine to be used for some serious diseases , now the Regional Commission of Health is working to decide which patients will benefit from it .
The Veneto Region was among the first in our country to introduce a law on the subject (2013), criticized with regard to the preparation stage , which was to take place within a specific pharmaceutical laboratory , Rovigo .
What is certain though, is that it will be the Regional Health Commission , to decide who supply it . For now it seems to be already out with a medicine within their own cannabis , used to relieve spasticity that affects patients with multiple sclerosis , but could be extended to patients with other diseases.
The use of medicinal marijuana must always be carried out at the request of a medical specialist ( neurologist or other) and will probably benefit from it, as well as sclerosis , even those who suffer from neuropathic pain , patients now and in the terminal stage patients with HIV . All this, however , not April 1 .
The law passed by the government, proposed by the Abruzzo Region, also provides that '' cannabinoid medicines can be prescribed at the expense of the regional health system and also by general practitioners , but only on the basis of a treatment plan decided by the medical practitioner ' ' .
