Bills to be tabled to permit medical cannabis export
Posted in Local News
Necessary Bills will be tabled in Parliament within the next 90-day period aimed at exporting of medicinal cannabis, State Minister Sisira Jayakody said yesterday (30) in parliament.
He stated that medicinal cannabis has been proved to be a cure for diseases such as cancer, nerve related ailments as well as mental illnesses.
Jayakody added that within the next three months the Government will look to submit the relevant laws and Bills to Parliament ahead of its ratification.
Will this Cannabis be grown on Organic Fertilizer according to the Leader’s Vision?
Can we also be able to export Kerala Ganja?
Cannabis (marijuana) is an addictive psychoactive substance with an increased risk of developing a psychotic illness like schizophrenia and is an illegal substance in Sri Lanka. There appears to be no clear evidence at present to show that cannabinoids can treat cancer or other neurological disease although research is ongoing. Anecdotal evidence of curing various diseases is quite misleading. Drug companies do not appear to be interested !! The Government should be very careful before it authorises the export of cannabis. Minister Jayakody’s statement in Parliament that cannabis has been proved to be a cure for diseases such as cancer, nerve related ailments as well as mental illness is downright misleading.
Dear Dr Fernando,
How right you are !
But my dear Dr, GOSL can sell anything including mothers and sisters from rural areas, prime land in Cbo, critical infrastructure, heritage, forestry etc to earn the valuable, reclusive dollars to keep the life style of the leaders, alive.
