Cannabis and cannabinoids gained increasing attention for their possible clinical uses, as recently reported in a Special issue of this journal. The Mario Negri Institute recently organized a national conference on the therapeutic potential of clinical use of Cannabis, hosting lectures from main Italian stakeholders in the area. The goal was to clarify the current national regulations regarding production, prescription and availability in Italy, and to evaluate the current state on the clinical use of Cannabis.
