Views wanted on cannabis and hemp use

Wed, 06 Feb 2019

Residents are being asked to give their opinon on whether Manx laws regarding the use of cannabis products for medicinal purposes and the growing of hemp for industrial use, should change.

Two consultations will be launched this week and run in parallel over six weeks.
Medicinal use of cannabis in limited circumstances has been allowed in the Island since November 2018, when Manx law followed a change in UK legislation.

The consultation will pose the question, should the Island continue to follow the UK in this area, or take a different approach.
