Austrian health agency exports cannabis
Austria’s health agency AGES has revealed that the medical grade cannabis was sold to pharmaceutical companies which used it to make cannabinoid painkillers, used for treating cancer patients.
Such medications are banned in Austria. Greens MP Eva Mückstein said it was outrageous that AGES was able to produce and sell cannabis but Austrian patients could not benefit from this. (See also: Greens launch cannabis legalization tour)
