(ANSA) - TRIESTE - Croatian pharmacies will start selling capsules of cannabis oil in March, Tanjug agency reported citing local media. The law allowing medical use of cannabis entered in force last October, but so far the patients have had to buy these products in other EU countries without the possibility of refund, since they are still not available in Croatian pharmacies. The new legislation allows the patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, tumour, epilepsy and Aids to use medications containing THC, in presence of medical prescription, with a maximum treatment period of 30 days and no more than 7.5 grams in total. According to Croatian media, the price for a monthly dose is likely to be around 1000-1500 kunas (around 130-190 euros).
