“A proposal was submitted to the ⚖️ Legislative Assembly of Panama to legalize Medicinal Marijuana while addressing the difference between THC and CBD products"
A year after it was approved in the first debate, the National Assembly dusted off "Proyecto de Ley 153" that regulates the medicinal and therapeutic use of cannabis.
Why? They argued that the proposal would go to a "technical table" with all the sectors involved.
That is, after long debates in which patients, doctors, lawyers, and politicians participated, and gathering contributions, both scientific and from experience, Bill 153 takes a step backwards. Now they must analyze 62 modifications.
In the words of Carlos Ossa, multiple sclerosis patient, and representative of the Fundación Busca Alternativas, it is almost like making “a new law”.
For now, the eye is on three of the loudest modifications. The project contemplated four types of license: cultivation, drug production, marketing, and research. With the changes presented, only two would remain: one for research, and another that encompasses the others (cultivation, drug production, and marketing).
Another change that the deputies want to impose limits the number of (production) licenses. The Ministry of Health, until 2032, could only grant three. And each of these permits is for 25 years.
There are also changes in the cost of licenses. In the approved project, the value reached $10K. With the modifications presented, they would cost $150K. The only people who are willing to put up $ 150K are people who already know that they are going to give them that license. This is a health and science topic, and science is constantly evolving every day.
We cannot know how many patients we will need the product in five years. Imagine that the demand grows so much, and we are going to depend on what only these three companies can produce, that is not fair, assures Ossa who has been involved in the drafting of the project on behalf of the patients since day one.
And while the Assembly agrees, according to Carlos Ossa, thousands of patients who depend on medicinal cannabis to treat their ills continue adrift, and forced to interact with the illegal market.
This, according to Ossa, "is a big problem", since he affirms that whoever cultivates does not necessarily have to know how to process, or whoever processes does not necessarily know about cultivation.

On August 15th, 1914, the Panama Canal opened for the first time. Spanish explorer Balboa first got around it by disassembling his ship in Panama the Atlantic Ocean and then reassembling in it the Pacific Ocean.
The history between San Diego and Panama City dates back to 1915 when San Diego hosted the Panama–California Exhibition to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal.
Panama, which does not have a central bank, officially adopted the U.S. dollar in 1904 after a monetary agreement between the two countries known as Taft-Arias.
After 100 years of shared history, the City of San Diego and Panama City, Panama officially became Sister Cities on July 18th, 2015.
The Sister Cities Program allows the two cities to build an economic, cultural, and educational partnership benefiting San Diegans and Panamanians.
The Sister City Agreement signing was held at the Balboa Park Club and in attendance were Member Harkey’s District Director Jordan Marks, Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins, Assemblymember Jose Medina and sponsors of the Sister City Program San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and Panama City Mayor Jose Blandon.
🌉When the Panama Canal opened, San Diego became the first American port of call north of the canal.
🌉The Canal saves lots of fuel: Over 3,500 nautical miles (6,500 km) between one coast of North America and ports on the other side of South America 420CEO.club👋
🌉Ships sailing between Europe and East Asia or Australia can save as much as 2,000 nautical miles (3,700 km) by using the Canal.
