CALDERON VALLEJO, Gustavo Adolfo; PAREJA HINCAPIE, Lina María; CAICEDO CANO, Catalina  e  CHICA RIOS, Rubiel Alberto. REGULATION OF THE USE OF MARIJUANA IN COLOMBIA WITH MEDICINAL PURPOSES. Hacia promoc. Salud [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.1, pp.43-55. ISSN 0121-7577.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/hpsal.2017.22.1.4.

Objective: To understand the process of regulating the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Materials and Methods: Hermeneutical method with qualitative approach, using the interview technique, applied to fifteen experts in October 2015. Interpretation was performed from categorical system and support of Atlas.ti bar program. Results: The debate on the regulation of marijuana for therapeutic purposes continuous sweeping the globe, particularly in relation to health benefits. With the use of some cannabinoids there is some evidence, but experts consulted recognize that they are not sufficient in these cases: further investigation is recommended. The interviewed experts from different disciplines support the arguments that the ban imposed over marijuana little has achieved and that public health approaches bring a non-repressive scientific openness to the situation, placing the debate on the potential benefits it can bring for the treatment of some diseases. These regulatory processes must consider control over the production, manufacture, export, distribution, sale and use of cannabis for medical and research purposes, other than the legalization of recreational use process. Conclusion: For the Colombian case, the regulation of cannabis for medicinal purposes, until a few months ago was just an argument with radicalized positions for and against. Today it is reality as it was approved by decree on which progress in terms of legislation is being done, but with little debate, research and information to the population.
