Greece has legalized cannabis for medical purposes, making it the sixth European country to do so.

Doctors in the country will soon be able to prescribe cannabis for various medical conditions, it was announced by left-wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

“From now on, the country is turning its page, as Greece is now included in countries where the delivery of medical cannabis to patients in need is legal,” Tsipras said at a press conference.

Greece follows the Czech Republic, Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain in legalizing medical marijuana. How cannabis will be cultivated and distributed in Greece is yet to be determined, but the country will soon be positioned to import cannabis-based medication.
