Malaysia: Government will continue studying legalising MMJ

The government will continue to study ways and review laws in legalizing the use of cannabis for medical purposes in Malaysia.

Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin said the government, through the Cabinet Committee to Combat Drugs and other ministries, is looking into whether cannabis can be used medically.

"There has been a special platform, namely the Cabinet Committee to Combat Drugs, to discuss and report issues related to drugs since 2004."

"Any matters relating to drug control and enforcement, including cannabis, which is listed as a dangerous drug under the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952, will be discussed in the committee," he told the Dewan Rakyat in his ministry's winding-up speech today.
