Ekoplast Slusovice to get medicinal marihuana deal


The State Office for Drug Control is poised to sign an agreement with the firm Ekoplast Slušovice which won a tender to produce medicinal marihuana for the Czech market. The Anti-Monopoly Office which was looking into the conditions of the tender has closed the case after failing to find any irregularities. Medicinal marihuana is already available on the market but is imported and thereby extremely expensive for patients. Presently one gram of medicinal marihuana costs 300 crowns while Ekoplast Slušovice won the tender with a projected price of just 68 crowns per gram.
