Family MDs allowed to prescribe marijuana under Abruzzo law (see previous) (ANSA) - Rome, March 7 - A law in Abruzzo legalizing medicinal use of cannabis-based drugs would allow family doctors to write such prescriptions, regional officials said Friday. "It's a strategic choice of our law," said Maurizio Acerbo, a councilor in the central region who wrote the law. Sources inside the national government said it had decided not to challenge it earlier Friday. The law also provides that the city government may establish agreements with regional centers equipped to produce and manufacture the drugs.
