Argentinean Government Legalizes Cultivation of Medical Cannabis

The Argentinean government legalized on Friday morning the growing of cannabis for medical use by individuals and networks, as well as the sale of oils and creams made from the plant in drugstores.

The Argentinean government legalized on Friday morning the growing of cannabis for medical use by individuals and networks, as well as the sale of oils and creams made from the plant in drugstores.

The move was made official through the publication of a decree published in the nation’s Official Gazette. 

The new rules are revisions to a law first approved back in 2017 that authorized the medicinal use of cannabis oils, but maintained an existing prohibition on the cultivation of the plant and the possession of seeds by individuals or groups.

According to its text, the new decree, which was signed by Argentina’s President Alberto Fernández, seeks to allow “timely, safe, inclusive and protective access for those who need to use cannabis as a therapeutic tool.”

 “It is urgent to create a regulatory framework that allows timely, safe, inclusive and protective access for those who need to use cannabis as a therapeutic tool,” reads Decree 883/2020.
