BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — Hebrew University is organizing Argentina’s first international conference on medicinal cannabis.

The first International Conference on Cannabis’ Endocannabinoid and Medicinal System in Argentina´s history, will take place October 24-25 at NH Tango Porteño Hotel in Buenos Aires.

In August, the Argentine government passed a law on the Medicinal Use of Cannabis and its Derivatives after it was sanctioned by Congress in late March.

“This law aims to establish a regulatory framework for medical and scientific research of medical, therapeutic or palliative pain of the plant of cannabis and its derivatives use, guaranteeing and promoting comprehensive health care,” the law states.

Israeli researcher Prof. Raphael Mechoulan will be a featured panelist at the conference. Mechoulan was featured last month on the cover of the THC Magazine, which stands for The Hemp Connoisseur, as “the genius of cannabis,” in an article that recognizes Israeli expertise in the area.
