In the last couple of years several countries have legalised the use of cannabis for medical purposes and more countries are at the brink of following the example set by a few pioneering countries. Experiences gained not only in Canada but also in those pioneering countries in Europe should be used to help governments and regulators to review their medical cannabis programs to allow easier access to cannabis as a medicine for those in need while simultaneously guaranteeing patient safety. In addition to the medical use of cannabis, there are movements in several European countries to review the legal status of cannabis for recreational purposes. The new German government for example has announced that they will legalise the recreational use of cannabis as soon as reasonably feasible. Aurora Europe, as a key leader in the industry, is excited to play a central rolewithin these developments and to offer our professional support to governments to quickly master the challenges ahead.
