A health ministry regulation clarifying the rules of the sale and distribution of medical marihuana will come into effect on Thursday of this week. Distribution may begin already in September, according to the legislative affairs deputive of the heath minister, Martin Plíšek. The ministry is hoping that by that time the legal rules for the import and distribution of the drug will be in place. The regulation allows the prescription of a maximum of 30 grams of medical marihuana, and pharmacies will be able to decide whether they want to carry the medicine or not. For now, medical marijuana sold in the Czech Republic will be imported from the Netherlands, but there ia possibility that Czech companies will receive the license to grow it here.
