Polish marijuana laws are crazy! Jakub Gajewski pro cannabis activist could face 15 years for medical marijuana oil!

Polish marijuana laws are harsh, arguably the harshest in all of Europe. For simple posession of any amount you can go to prison for up to 3 years. If the amount you are caught with is „considerable” (a term not defined by the law, always left for the consideration of the judge), the sentence can be raised to 10 years. Transport and trafficking within the EU is a serious crime penalized with 3 to 15 years in jail.


Poland - Medical marijuana on the table for epileptic children

The first patient to undergo marijuana therapy, a 5-year-old boy called Maks, used to have up to 300 seizures daily, although that number has now dropped by as much as 90 percent, Dr Marek Bachański at the Institute told the PAP news agency.

Other patients under the care of Dr Bachański have also seen a drop in seizures.

Bachański told PAP that in most cases, the child’s parents opt for this form of therapy. “I sometimes also propose [such therapy], although it’s never [a] forced [decision],” he underlined.

Dr Bachański said that even though a small group of child patients had undergone testing with medical marijuana, the results show “effectiveness”, with minimal side-effects, usually drowsiness, fatigue and problems with appetite.
