Due to its recreational effects, Marijuana has been seen just like any other drug for many years. However, the situation has changed radically in the last decade.
In the United States, the use of Cannabis for medical purposes is legal in 29 states.
Giving the fact that it all started in 1996, when California became the first state to effectively legalize Medical Marijuana, it’s obvious that the trend is a positive one.
“The EU is ahead of the game in some ways due to the hemp industry. Growing and processing hemp is legal, and it just happens that we are able to extract the chemicals we need in a legal way” Thomas Mershon, xMed21, iCEE.health speaker

“There are different laws all across the EU that affect what products can and cannot be sold. Some countries allow 0.2% THC in their preparations, others do not” says Thomas.
In Romania, although medical marijuana is legal, with the limit of 0.2% for the psychoactive constituent THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), there are no products currently authorized on the market [source, Romanian only].
