The Medicine Authority’s first information session left some feeling shocked and furious The first official networking and information event on medical cannabis for professionals was held last night, and doctors and pharmacists were left feeling less confident than ever in the new medicine. Organised by the Medicine’s Authority and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Health, many Maltese doctors and pharmacists attended the event to learn more about prescribing medical cannabis after its legalisation.  However, many attendees were left just as clueless about medical cannabis by the end of the session after authorities sent out mixed messages about prescribing the new medicine, with some doctors even walking out mid-meeting. “Doctors who attended are now convinced they shouldn’t prescribe the medicine. Pharmacists are afraid to dispense – it wasn’t a very fruitful meeting,” one doctor who attended the event told Lovin Malta. Another man who attended the event was “shocked” at how the Medicine’s Authority was speaking about cannabis to the doctors.
