UK: FASTER ACCESS TO CANNABIS-BASED MEDICINES AS IMPORT RESTRICTIONS ARE CHANGED

A news release from the Home Office on 2 March advised that import restrictions have been changed to help ensure people with prescriptions for cannabis-based products for medicinal use do not have their treatment delayed or interrupted.  Licensed wholesalers will now be able to import larger quantities of cannabis-based products, and hold supplies for future use by patients with prescriptions.  The new measures will be implemented by the Home Office and MHRA from 2 March.  The change follows the law change in October 2018 to allow specialist doctors to prescribe cannabis-based products for medicinal use where clinically appropriate in the UK.
