The report goes on to say….
The plan, which must be approved by parliament, would allow authorities to determine how many people in the tiny duchy will use medical marijuana and under what conditions.
Health minister Lydia Mutsch told a press conference that the government aims to limit marijuana use to people with cancer, multiple sclerosis and other serious illnesses.
“This must be an exception in a controlled and secure setting,” Mutsch said as she introduced the proposed legislative changes.
The authority to prescribe such treatment “should be limited to certain specialists like oncologists, neurologists and internists,” the minister added.
Health and social security ministers also plan to discuss terms and conditions for reimbursing patients who use the drug.
Mutsch intends to present amendments to the draft governing medicinal use of drugs by year-end.
The draft will then go before parliament for debate and a vote. The pilot project would start after the new law is adopted, probably in 2018.
