The president Michelle Bachelet has allowed the elaboration and selling of medicines based on cannabis.
This due to a decree signed by the president and by the Health ministry at the end of October.
The measure has been confirmed by the General Comptrollership of the Republic.
Thus, because of this regulation, “the Public Health Institute (IPS), will authorize and will have the control over the cannabis uses, cannabis resine and dyes on basis of cannabis for the elaboration of pharmaceutic products for human use”, according to La Tercera.
Hence, the drugs of marihuana will be sold in pharmacies or laboratories under medical prescription, and now, the Interior Ministry should ratify if the marihuana will leave or not the List I of narcotics.
