The Supreme Court of Justice rejected an injunction from a group of mothers that sought to prevent any state intervention on medical cannabis treatments for their children, but ruled that those who are not registered in the self-cultivation register cannot be penalized if they demonstrate that it has a purpose therapy.

The unanimous ruling of the highest court was issued based on a presentation by the Medicinal Cannabis Moms (Macame) association and was preceded by a public hearing held two months ago in which they presented the Public Ministry as “amicus curiae” (friends of the court). of Defense and the interim Attorney General of the Nation, Eduardo Casal, in addition to the legal representatives of each of the parties and of the province of Santa Fe who cultivate and produce oil or other preparations for the treatment of pathologies suffered by their children and daughters.

In its ruling, the country’s highest court prioritized the right to health and recalled that, according to current regulations, “the cultivation of cannabis for medicinal purposes by the mothers of minors is decriminalized,” but warned that the registry created for state control “is reasonable”.

According to the judges of the Court, the objective of state control is to prevent the improper use of medications, determine their dangerousness, their proven and verifiable action and therapeutic purposes, and their scientific, technical or economic advantages, in accordance with scientific advances.
