The Health Ministry says that from December, doctors will be able to prescribe marijuana to patients.

The ministry publishes its reforms into the medical marijuana system, saying that it will review the system again after a year.

The reform is intended to make it easier for patients to access the drug and remove bureaucratic hurdles. Up until now, those eligible for medical marijuana had to get a special license.

The reform also removes CBD products that do not have psychoactive properties, from drug restrictions.
