Spain has several medical cannabis licensed producers and one already exports flower to countries such as Germany. However, these products remain unavailable to Spanish patients due to regulatory laws. Now, a recent government reply to a member of parliament indicates that will not change for the time being. In a reply to a question by Josune Gorospe, member of the Congress of Deputies of Spain, the government erased any near-term hope that domestic patients could benefit from a medical cannabis program. Many international cannabis experts agree that the Spanish situation is not unusual in international medical cannabis markets, where governments are keen to capitalize on exports without allowing for the development of a domestic medical marijuana industry. Although, many market experts say such a model could prove to be unsustainable for businesses due to the uncertain nature of the medical cannabis export market.
