This week the Federal Justice in Rosario answered an appeal from a group of mothers to allow cannabis for medicinal purposes in this city of the Argentine Republic.
The “amparo” was presented by the group “Madres que se Plantan”, a group of mothers whose children have seen better results thanks to the use of cannabis handmade oils.
The remedy of “amparo” occurs in a context in which, despite the fact that the Argentine legal system has recognized sowing in these medicinal contexts in different places, however, the activity continues to be highly penalized by the Penal Code.
“It is a historical failure not only because for the first time the action is collective – undertaken by 8 mothers – but because unlike the other precedents at the national level, a joint and articulated work is recognized with health professionals and the Public University for perform the testing and production of each of the oils, “said Councilwoman Caren Tepp (Future City).
The ruling would allow the mothers involved to plant cannabis in their respective homes for exclusively medicinal purposes for their minor children. This will allow mothers to experiment with different genetics and the elaboration of extracts whose price and operation fluctuate due to the illegality of the market.
On this path, the CG / Em Analysis Laboratory of the Faculty of Biochemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences of the National University of Rosario will also join the analysis of the extracts together with the medical and psychological accompaniment of the Association of Users and Professionals. for the Cannabis Boarding (AUPAC), according to local sources.
For many families who take the risk with the slogan “health can not wait”, self-cultivation is the tool they have to be able to ensure the provision of their medicine accurately and at low cost. Judge Silvia Raquel Arramberrí used this argument.
Despite the fact that in Law 27,350 the National State is committed to produce and provide medicine to patients, the same court found that there is a breach by the Ministry of Health, which gave force to the resolution of the ruling.
“I conclude then that this situation of omission on the part of the State to a mandate expressly and clearly determined in the law 27,350, legitimizes the behavior of the amparistas, who before the urgency in attending the pathologies of their children, have been forced to obtain the medication by other means outside the State spring “, says document.
The courts also recognized that treatment with artisanal oils has had a “highly favorable” response, even in some cases, better than imported oil.
“In particular, the treatment has attenuated the harmful symptoms of the serious pathologies they suffer and substantially improved the quality of life of children. It has also been demonstrated with the degree of probability inherent to this procedural stage that the suspension of treatment, although it does not cause specific damage, results in the loss of the therapeutic benefit achieved in children who are now stabilized “.
Within a period of 30 days, mothers must promote the registration of their children in the National Program Registries referred to by Law 27,350.
