Last Wednesday, In Argentina the nation’s Health Minister, Ginés González García, unveiled a new draft regulation for the medical cannabis program. Many features of the regulation are still being worked out, but the government is expected to decide on a national bill in the coming weeks. According to government officials the regulation, if implemented, will allow for home cultivation of cannabis for medical purposes, and the sales of oils and topicals in pharmacies in the country. Furthermore, the new regulation sets broader standards on cultivation as it allows personal cultivation of cannabis by patients, or a family member on the patient’s behalf, who registers in the country’s national cannabis program.
