The proposed regulations to govern the medicinal cannabis unit (MCU) that was established at the health ministry are now being finalised and will be submitted to Cabinet shortly.
At the same time, the ministry has reported that a total of 80 persons have been trained and certified to prescribe medical marijuana in Jamaica.
They include 39 physicians, 22 pharmacists, 17 employees of the National Council on Drug Abuse, and two scientific researchers.
Already, the ministry has registered nine medicinal cannabis products, including three it said were approved in June this year.
