Medical cannabis legalised in Greece

The Prime Minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras, has announced that medical cannabis will soon be legalised. Once the legislation has been passed, doctors will be able to prescribe medical cannabis to their patients. Tsipras also said that he also intends to reduce cannabis from a ‘Table A’ to a ‘Table B’ drug, meaning that it will sit alongside methadone and opium as a drug which has approved medical properties.
