In August 2022, the law on medical cannabis was amended in Switzerland. Prior to the legal change, a special permit from the Swiss federal government was required, but after the legal change, patients can now receive a prescription for medical cannabis directly from their doctor for medical purposes. The cultivation and export of medical cannabis is also now permitted.
