Cannabis substitute

6. september 2002

Some of the country's leading medical specialists and researchers are trying to produce a synthetic cannabis substitute that will hopefully relieve the pains and spasms of Multiple Sclerosis sufferers. Researchers on the project have now concluded that the cost of the pill will actually be far greater than just administering plain cannabis or marijuana - both of which are still illegal in this country. According to early projections, a year's supply of the new pill will cost DKK 65,000. Patients claim that, for the same amount, they could purchase 1.3kilos of cannabis or marijuana, the equivalent of four grams per day, and far in excess of what is required.
