Ukraine’s parliamentary committee on human rights supported the petition on legalization of medical cannabis, as Hromadske reported.
The committee decided to create a working group and involve the representatives of the other specialized committees. The group will have to develop draft law on regulation of usage of medical cannabis.
Besides, the committee decided to appeal to the Cabinet of Minister asking to remove cannabis from the list of narcotic drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors.

It was noted that the representatives of NGOs, including Nina Reznichenko from “Athena. Women against cancer” were present at the meeting. Reznichenko said medical cannabis is required for patients with cancer to alleviate pain.
“Over 55 women of our community died over the past two years. At least eight of them illegally used medicine with medical cannabis and survived this way. They were forced into the illegal business,” she told.

Ukrainian MP Georgiy Logvinsky stressed that the committee was ready to protect “unpopular thinks” as well.
“The main goal why we, the members of the committee are ready to support this petition, protect unpopular things – is a violation of human right for normal life,” he said.
