ReLeaf expresses concern as Medicinal Cannabis remains out of stock only 3 weeks after the Medical Cannabis World Forum.

ReLeaf has been informed by several patients with differing ailments that after being prescribed medical cannabis by their doctor, the patients have been unable to purchase such medicine as they keep facing the same issue since the medicine has been out of stock for the past few weeks.

Patients have been left waiting from one week to another, hoping that their medicine arrives, with pharmacies scrambling to answer questions they do not have the answer to. This forces patients to revert to the black market or otherwise have their quality of life compensated due to symptoms resurfacing once the medicine is stopped.

ReLeaf has also noted that there is only a small number of pharmacies stocking medical cannabis, which requires patients to travel across the island in order to obtain such medicine if and when available on the market. This is unfair on patients with limited access, as well as totally unacceptable.

The idea that a country would legalise medicine, attract millions in investment for the medicine, and then fail to supply its very own citizens with the medicine is totally unacceptable.

ReLeaf strongly urges the authorities to take note and resolve this situation.

Up until a few years ago, it was a normality in Malta to have medicines out of stock and the current government had pledged that our society shall not encounter the same issue once they are in government.

Unfortunately, it seems that when it comes to medical cannabis, reality states otherwise.
