10 operators of medical cannabis approved by Malta Enterprise – PM

PM Joseph Muscat has addressed a world forum where he announced that ten operators of medical cannabis have been approved by Malta Enterprise and that they will be applying with the Medicines Authority to be given a licence.  Dr Muscat said that this will create 400 jobs within the next three years and that millions of Euro will be invested. He added that Malta will be the main centre for innovation and research where medical cannabis products will be approved and tested in special labs set up within a more efficient regulatory framework.

Dr Muscat said that there were also applications by ten other companies which had been refused. He explained that both Malta Enterprise and the Medicines Authority are working together to analyse the applications of the operators of medical cannabis to ensure a safe environment.
