The Irish Farmers Association is urging the Irish government to pass legislation that would allow farmers to produce medicinal cannabis.
The IFA would like a meeting with the Department of Health to discuss the issue of the potential amendment of Irish law to allow the production of medicinal cannabis.
The Sunday Times reports that Fintan Conway, IFA Executive Secretary, sent an email to Marie Egan, a pharmacist at the Irish Department of Health, in January this year, requesting a meeting between the two bodies to discuss the how hemp could be used to produce medicinal cannabis.
