In the latest development, at the 14th UN Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in Kyoto on Monday, the Foreign Minister (who by his own admission, has never drunk either any alcohol, or even coffee) said that “unfortunately, what we see is that Brussels supports not only illegal migration but an increased use of drugs.” He explained that “cannabis has recently been reclassified in the UN as an allegedly non-hazardous substance.”
Debates on the medical use of cannabis and drug liberalization as a whole is certainly back on the agenda in Hungary. Amid a strict drug law and growing international tendencies, the Fidesz-led government still firmly opposes a more lenient stance on the matter. Recently, the government went against the joint EU stance and voted against a UN resolution that would pave the way for the legal use of medical cannabis.
Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (TASZ) in a recent opinion piece published by liberal 444.hu, highlights the case of a patient who uses a product made of the hemp flower which proved more effective than CBD oil after a grave spinal fracture. TASZ, therefore, urges the government to recognize the medicinal value of cannabis and enable its therapeutic use. “ It is inhumane to sweep the needs of serious patients under the rug, to force them to buy on the black market across borders instead of offering an effective treatment based on scientific evidence. Thousands of studies and examples from dozens of states demonstrate that the medical use of cannabis fits well into health treatments and poses no threat to society, while providing a unique opportunity for patients who could not be helped by other methods,” they wrote.
