COPENHAGEN–The Danish Parliament, on Monday, made the decision to extend the Pilot Programme for prescription of medical cannabis by another 4 years. They also agreed to make Danish cultivation and production of medical cannabis permanent beyond the expiration of the current Pilot in December 2021.

The parliamentary agreement also means doctors will continue to have the ability to prescribe cannabis to patients for another four years.

A majority of parliamentary parties agreed to make permanent the ability for businesses to grow cannabis for medical use – a welcome move for companies such as Alberta-based Aurora Cannabis, which still operates a production subsidiary in Denmark.

“The permanent authorization for licensed producers of the production and the export of medical cannabis in Denmark, independent of the pilot program, is an important milestone recognizing this young industry,” the Danish subsidiary of Aurora said in a statement to MJBizDaily.

Some Canadian companies, however, are planning to reduce their presence there and in other European countries. Early hopes of rapid change by Canadian LPs, were met with long delays, as the cannabis laws are only slowly being formulated across Europe.
