Dutch system is failing its patients – Medicinal Cannabis as a Human Right | Part 3/4

Cannabis News Network is launching a miniseries on one of the hottest topics in cannabis regulation: the medicinal benefits of the plant and the struggle of patients to get access to it.

In 2001, the Dutch government set up the Office for Medicinal Cannabis (BMC). This organization is responsible for the production of cannabis for medicinal and scientific purposes.

By doing this, the Netherlands became the first country in the world to start a government-controlled medicinal cannabis program. A pharmaceutical system functioning under strict conditions meeting United Nations’ requirements, and giving one company, Bedrocan, the monopoly in supplying cannabis.

In episode 3 of this series, we show you how this system is set up and why it is failing its patients.
