Peru: Lawmakers Approve Legislation To Regulate Medical Cannabis Oils

Lima, Peru: Lawmakers have approved legislation to oversee the production and regulation of certain cannabis-derived oil products. Passage of the measure comes months after lawmakers had depenalized activities specific to the medical use of cannabis for “serious and terminal diseases.”

Regulators have 60 days to iron out the details of the new program.

Other South American countries that have recently taken steps to regulate the distribution of cannabis products include Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Uruguay.
