Ukraine’s parliament has approved the legalization of medical marijuana, which will come into effect in six months.
The law also permits cannabis use for scientific and industrial purposes.
The debate over medical marijuana has been ongoing in Ukraine, with proponents citing its potential benefits, while opponents are concerned about potential drug-related issues.
The recent war with Russia has brought renewed attention to the issue, as many people are suffering from stress and anxiety.
The legislation imposes strict controls on cannabis production and distribution, requiring a doctor’s prescription for any cannabis-containing medicine, while recreational use remains illegal.
