Marlene Hassan Nahon welcomes inclusion of Sativex in GHA’s list of prescribed drugs

Independent MP Marlene Hassan Nahon has welcomed the inclusion of Sativex in the GHA’s list of prescribed drugs, and says this will provide a clear and fair process which will benefit those who need it most.

However, Ms Hassan Nahon says she is keen to explore further options and consider the benefits of other cannabis derived compounds.

She says Gibraltar should exercise its own jurisdictional power to licence medicines which could benefit local patients, and therefore looks forward to discussing her motion in Parliament.
