Cannabis: a new high for regulation in Europe?

Head of EU Public Policy Gail Orton is joined by Healthcare and Life Sciences partner Dr Gunnar Sachs and lawyer Ann-Cathrin Bergstedt to discuss the developments in legislation for cannabis in medical and consumer products across Europe.

This is currently a hot topic, as there are still misunderstandings among national administrations and market players, with the legalization of the drug for recreational use commonly confused with the need to provide safe and legal access to cannabis for medical purposes.
