Premier Alden McLaughlin denied government is dragging its feet on allowing the importation and distribution of medical cannabis oil.

Mr. McLaughlin, who called medical cannabis a priority in his budget address back in May, said the issue was raised with the Health ministry last November.

He said consultation with medical professionals and other stakeholders produced a report that informed cabinet’s eventual decision in may to approve cannabis oil for medical use.

He urged patience while the necessary changes to the law are made, saying “In May, [we] took the policy decision to allow the use of the oil, but we still required the amendments to the law to be drafted. That takes time. I hope to have them for cabinet consideration next week.”
