    (ANSAmed) - PARIS, OCTOBER 25 - The French National Assembly on Friday gave a green light to an experimental medical cannabis project as part of the 2020 Social Security budget.

    The MPs approved by a majority an amendment by Olivier Veran of La Republique en Marche that authorises the experimentation for two years, following approval by the French Medicines Agency. French Undersecretary for Health Christelle Dubos expressed satisfaction with the result.

    "The experimentation will involve 3,000 patients in France and must evaluate the positive impact of cannabis derivatives on certain pathologies," Dubos said.(ANSAmed).
