SCRIPT – Research on sale of cannabis in pharmacies

The main aim of this pilot trial is to evaluate what impact a regulated not-for-profit sale of cannabis in pharmacies combined with related advisory services may have on cannabis consumption.

Any shift from smoking to other forms of cannabis consumption will be of particular interest. One study group will be able to obtain cannabis products from the outset, while a second group will be able to do so after six months. The trial will then run for a further 18 months.
