Founder of Dutch medicinal cannabis program tells his story – Cannabis News Network

Many countries consider the Netherlands as a model in terms of lenient cannabis policies. One of these models is the medicinal cannabis program currently in place. But should the Netherlands be seen as the textbook example for such a program?

In this Cannabis News Network special, James Burton speaks out on the turbulent history of medicinal cannabis in the Netherlands.

Many countries consider the Netherlands as a model in terms of lenient cannabis policies. One of these models is the medicinal cannabis program currently in place. But should the Netherlands be seen as the textbook example for such a program?

Cannabis News Network is trying to find an answer to this question. They start off with James Burton, who 10 years ago was the first grower who officially worked together with Dutch authorities in order to set up a medicinal cannabis program.

Today medicinal cannabis is regaining interest from the rest of the world. More and more US states have legalized medicinal and recreation use of cannabis alike, Uruguay is moving towards government-grown cannabis and a Dutch medicinal cannabis company expanded its activities to Canada.

Strangely, James Burton is not part of these historical events at all. After more than 10 years, he looks back and shares his story with Cannabis News Network, prompting three questions:

  • Has the Dutch Office of Medicinal Cannabis ultimately failed?
  • Why make Gamma radiation obligatory? And what is the effect?
  • How about other countries and their policies towards medicinal cannabis?

Stay tuned to Cannabis News Network as they investigate further the curious case of medicinal cannabis in the Netherlands, Europe and beyond.
