cbd oil indonesia legal

Following a series of high-profile cases involving children in the UK being denied access to cannabis oil to control epileptic seizures, the home secretary announced in October that cannabis-derived medicine would be made available via prescription.

Holmes, from Cornwall, said police stated that the weight of the bottles he received in the post from a friend in Thailand was 31g, which equates to around 3g of cannabis oil.

Holmes, who described himself as a painter and surfer, spent six days in a police cell before being transferred to a rehabilitation facility after his lawyers argued that he was a drug user rather than a drug trafficker.

“There is a legal team in Bali that can help him get into a rehab facility instead. There he would serve a few months and also get the help he needs. He doesn’t deserve a long sentence. He needs our help.”

He was one of five people arrested by Indonesian police for alleged drug smuggling last week in Denpasar, the capital of Bali province.

A British man who was arrested in Bali for possession of cannabis oil says he is now living a “terrible nightmare” and faces a jail term of up to 15 years.

“As it stands, I don’t know if I’m about to spend a few months in rehabilitation or if I’m about to face five to 15 years in Kerobokan – one of the toughest prisons on earth.”

The preliminary hearings had barely begun when Musa died on December 26 after his condition deteriorated as a result of breathing difficulties and hypoxia, according to the coalition.

Last month, the UN’ commission on narcotic drugs followed the World Health Organisation’s recommendation from 2019 to remove medical cannabis from the list of the world’s most dangerous, highly addictive drugs.

A grieving mother has made yet another call for Indonesia to legalise the use of cannabis for medical purposes. The substance is banned in the country under the 2009 Narcotics Law, which is one of the world’s strictest drug regulations.

She said regulations should be open to scientific developments, which would be better than having patients secretly self-experiment with marijuana.

Under the law, cannabis is a type-1 narcotic, meaning it is forbidden for medical use and its production is explicitly banned except for certain research purposes. It is listed alongside 65 other drugs, including opium, cocaine and methamphetamine. The law places narcotics into three classifications, and those that are not listed as type 1 may be used for medical or more general research purposes.
