Round Table at the President’s Foundation for the Well-being of Society on the non-medical use of cannabis

ReLeaf proactively participated in the President’s round table on the non-medical use of cannabis held on Monday 16 July 2018. ReLeaf reiterated its views that the use of cannabis is popular in Malta and that is why adequate legislation and regulation is needed. Only through a solid legislative framework can Malta ensure that young people do not have access to cannabis and adult cannabis users are protected against the negative effects of the illegal market. ReLeaf highlighted how presently...

RELEAF STATEMENT ON THE APPROVAL OF THE PRODUCTION OF MEDICINAL CANNABIS ACT

ReLeaf welcomes the approval of the Production of Medicinal Cannabis Act by the Maltese parliament.  ReLeaf has been closely monitoring discussions in the House of Representatives and positively notes that the majority of elected parties recognise the medicinal benefits of the cannabis plant and are fully committed to expanding the medical cannabis industry in Malta. It is unfortunate that some members of Parliament still have a severe lack of knowledge on what the production of...

RELEAF STATEMENT ON PN’S POSITION

It is disappointing to see the Nationalist party reconfirm their position against the legalisation of the personal use of cannabis, especially in light of recent tentative steps towards a more sensible drug policy. It is especially saddening to hear this re-affirmation of an unjust and poor social policy forcing thousands of Maltese citizens to be stigmatised and forced into a black market after our personal meeting with the honourable Dr. Adrian Delia. He had been receptive to our...

Releaf Manifesto Launch 13th October

We have been overwhelmed with the positive response we’ve received since we started working on this campaign; it has been a great, highly-motivating start to our movement’s life, and we cannot express our gratitude to the people of Malta enough.  We are officially launching the ReLeaf Malta manifesto, a legislative framework for the government to take control of the wild west of a system we currently have and legalise and regulate the cannabis market. Medicinal users, personal...

ReLeaf expresses concern at the latest developments related to medicinal cannabis in Malta and patients’ rights

It has come to the attention of ReLeaf that a new discriminatory practice is being imposed on medicinal cannabis patients, negatively impinging on their rights and freedoms as equal citizens of Malta. As reported by the online portal LovinMalta doctors have a legal obligation to inform the Commissioner of police that a patient is using medicinal cannabis and thus proceed with the revocation of the driving licence. Patients that apply for medicinal cannabis will be forced to give up...

PRESS STATEMENT ON THE PROPOSED MEDICINAL CANNABIS AMENDMENT

ReLeaf would like to applaud the Government of Malta's recent steps towards legalising and regulating medicinal cannabis. This is a long overdue step in Malta's healthcare, and it shows that the Government is taking note of a global shift towards the effective use of cannabis as a medicine. We especially applaud the allowance of family doctors to prescribe medicinal cannabis as they see fit, which is in line with our proposals in the ReLeaf Manifesto. We also applaud the issuance of...

ON THE LEGALIZATION OF MEDICAL CANNABIS IN MALTA

ReLeaf welcomes the legalisation of medical cannabis in Malta.  Maltese citizens can now benefit from the therapeutic opportunities the cannabis plant offers in a relatively unrestricted manner. While there is space for further clarity on things such as the accurate labelling of THC vs CBD, as well as the improvement of the necessary differentiation between THC/CBD medicine and CBD-only medicine, this is a positive step forward for the Maltese healthcare system on the whole. It...

Maltese Doctors Left In The Dark About Medical Cannabis

On 19 April 2018 the Medicines Authority and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Health organised the first networking meeting on Medicinal Cannabis and invited the participation of medical practitioners, pharmacists, wholesale dealers, stakeholders and members of the public. The event attracted a large number of practitioners so much so that some had to stand outside of the room. Releaf believes this is a positive development and is also reflective of an increased interest in the...
