Parliament approved legislation allowing the manufacture of cannabis for medicinal purposes in Greece. The new legislation sets out the rules governing the cultivation and production of the particular types of the plant that are used for pharmaceutical purposes, as well as the operation of manufacturing units. The bill, which was voted for by the ruling majority, centrist To Potami and Democratic Alignment, was criticized by New Democracy lawmaker Konstantinos Vlasis, who said that it leaves loopholes allowing for the recreational use of cannabis.
