Though not all states in the U.S. have adopted legislation liberal to drugs, Americans consume more drugs than people in any other country in the world.

Sophie Løhde, the Minister of Health, has proposed this initiative in order to prove the efficiency of medicinal cannabis.

Her proposal is based on the experience of the Netherlands, where medical marijuana has been legally used since 2003.

During the trial period, general practitioners will be authorized to prescribe marijuana products produced in Canada and the Netherlands. Patients experiencing chronic pain, back injuries, multiple sclerosis, and side effects of cancer treatment will be permitted to legally eat, smoke, and drink weed products.

​Tilray, a Canadian company specializing in medical marijuana production and research, became the first medical cannabis company that received all necessary permits to sell their products to European medical marijuana patients.

Kirsten Normann Andersen from the Socialistisk Folkeparti is only one of the many politicians who support the legalization of medical weed in the country. The proposal is also backed by members from such parties as Enhedslisten, Radikale, and Socialdemokratiet. The members of Liberal Alliance Dansk Folkeparti are ready to license chemists for selling marijuana products without subsidies.

More information on Løhde's proposition will be provided only after the notion is officially approved.
