Parliament discusses the medical use of cannabis


The sub-committee in charge of studying the draft bill related to the cultivation of cannabis for medicinal use convened yesterday under MP Yassin Jaber to review a scientific study by Dr. Mirna Sabra, Medical School-Lebanese University. Sabra in her report demonstrated the use of marijuana in fighting cancer, specifically in destroying cancerous cells while saving normal ones. The above committee also followed up on the proposal to legalize planting cannabis for medical use, from Article 1 up to Article 18, related to provisos required for the license orders.
