Medicinal cannabis regulations expected in October Tynwald

Enterprise minister "fully committed" to introducing licensed regime by Autumn

The enterprise minister says he's "fully committed" to bringing in medicinal cannabis licensing later this year.

Laurence Skelly confirmed in Tynwald that regulations for the sector are being prepared for October's sitting of the Manx parliament.

Treasury must review the business case from the Department for Enterprise, but if approved, draft regulations setting out policies and other details can be finalised.

Mr Skelly says progress has been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak, but a licensed regime should be in place by Autumn 2020.
