Zelensky Urges Medical Marijuana Legalization for Ukrainians with ‘Trauma of War’

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is calling for the legalization of medical marijuana in his country to aid those suffering from the “trauma of war” with Russia. In an address to Ukraine’s parliament, Zelensky urged members to legalize medicinal cannabis as a therapeutic option for Ukrainians who have endured over a year of war since Russia’s invasion in February 2022.

We must finally fairly legalize cannabis-based medicines for all those who need them, with appropriate scientific research and controlled Ukrainian production,” Zelensky stated. He emphasized that all effective policies and solutions, no matter how difficult or unusual they may seem, must be applied to Ukraine so that its citizens do not have to endure the pain, stress, and trauma of war.

So, is THCA legal or not?

Ukraine had previously approved THC and CAD-containing substances, Dronabinol and Nabiximols, for medical use in April 2021. These substances include a range of medications such as antidepressants, antibiotics, antipsychotics, and many others. Last year, the Ukrainian government announced its support for the decriminalization of medical marijuana, with Health Minister Viktor Lyashko stating that the cabinet supports a bill regulating the circulation of cannabis for medical, industrial, and scientific purposes.
