The Hon. Dr. Mario GR Oriani-Ambrosini introduces the ‘MEDICAL INNOVATION BILL’ in South Africa’s Parliament calling for the legalisation of cannabinoids for medical use.
“The objectives of the Bill are to establish one or more research hospitals where medical innovation can take place, especially with regard to the treatment and cure of cancer and to legalise the medical, commercial and industrial use of cannabis in accordance with emerging world standards. This Bill creates a special legal dispensation, which applies only in research pilot hospitals authorised by the Minister of Health where medical practitioners are granted greater professional discretion to administer, innovative and alternative medical treatments on the basis of the patient’s informed consent”
