Brazil authorizes cultivation of cannabis for medical use

BRASILIA ( Associated Press) — A Brazilian high court on Tuesday authorized three patients to grow cannabis for their medical treatment, a decision likely to apply across the country in similar cases.

A five-judge High Court panel unanimously agreed that three patients could grow cannabis and extract its oil for pain relief. Brazilian law currently limits the medicinal use of marijuana derivatives to imported products.

Brazil’s health ministry has not yet regulated the domestic cultivation of cannabis for medicinal use, which exposes anyone who does so to arrest.

Judge Rosario Schetti said the high court panel acted because the government had not taken a scientific stand on the issue.

“The discourse against this possibility is moral. At times it has a religious character, based on dogma, on false truths, on stigma,” said Shitty. “Let’s stop this prejudice, this morality that is at issue in the legislature. delays its development, and often clouds the minds of Brazilian judges.”

Judge Antonio Saldanha said the Brazilian government’s delay has “a deliberate retreat toward ambiguity”.

The country’s health ministry did not respond to a request for comment sent by The Associated Press.

President Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right politician facing an uphill battle to be re-elected in October, said in June 2021 that he did not agree to any authorization to allow Brazilians to grow marijuana at home, regardless Whatever be its purpose.

The main leader of the left-wing Workers’ Party, former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, leads all opinion polls to return to his position from 2003 to 2010.

Uruguay is the only South American country where the use of marijuana is legal even for recreational purposes. On May 27, Argentina passed a law regulating the medicinal use of cannabis and a regulatory agency was established to control the way patients receive marijuana seeds and products.

The decision of a Brazilian court comes after protests in various parts of the country on June 11 in favor of cannabis for medicinal use.
