In response to a lack of access for patients, medical cannabis cultivation has become an option for patient associations in Peru following a recent change to the country’s weed laws. Only people registered with the country’s National Register of Patients Using Cannabis are able to get a licence to grow, process, transport and store weed and its derivatives for medical purposes. Associations can be made up of two or more registered patients or their legal representatives. Cultivation is strictly for medical or therapeutic uses of cannabis, and all growing must meet requirements set by Peru’s Ministry of Health.Only registered patients can form associations able to get a licence to grow, process, transport and store weed for medical purposes.
