To ask the Scottish Government what recent discussions it has had with the UK Government on the issue of medicinal cannabis.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 31 July 2018

Scottish Government officials regularly meet with representatives of the UK Government and other devolved administrations on a wide range of medicine policy issues including those around cannabis-derived products for medicinal purposes. Officials will continue to work closely with their counterparts further to the UK Government’s decision to reschedule these products within the terms of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
