All the versions of this article:
Last Sunday Serbian public, and specially parents and patients were shocked by Dr. Danica Grujicic’s glorifying of morphine as fantastic medicine, which taken in 4-5 injection doses will not make you addictive. In addition, she claimed that Cannabis is very dangerous and that it is not medicine at all. All links are at the end of this mail
But you should listen this doctor, chairperson of the Government Commission for legalizing Cannabis for medicine. From March till now they did nothing. Meanwhile, people with terminal diseases have been arrested just because they used to heal themselves with cannabis and decarboxylated extract of the flowers (RSO).
We need your help to spread the truth about hard violation of our basic human rights.
Serbia is the country with more public testimonies about healing with cannabis than any other country in Europe, and more public meetings, seminars and protests, than in any part of the world in this year. We opened cannabis social clubs in many cities as ill people for education centers, and made a large archive of translated medical studies and other documents that confirm the therapeutic effects of cannabis and cannabinoids, but no answer from those who decide on our destiny we’ve received ever since.
Thousands of people, mothers, children, our families depend now on ignorance and are in constant fear of being arrested during their therapy with cannabis. The cure that can help so many ill people in our country, with very bad social and health care.
In Serbia there are thousands of people illegally using cannabis and cannabis oil for healing cancer, MS, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, and other, with a lot of success.

President of Association IRKA
Association of citizens “The initiative to change the cannabis legislation”
(IRKA), was established in August 2013 and was registered in February 2014.
IRKA is the first official association advocating cannabis legalization in Serbia and it gathers citizens from all over Serbia.
Who are we
IRKA is made of patients, their family members and all the citizens who want to help them achieve the ability to legally obtain and use cannabis and the extract of cannabis flowers in order to treat their conditions. None of us is paid for everything we have been doing for years. We are helping each other and we are spending our free time in order to achieve this noble and human goal. Since recently we started collecting membership fee and idea is to use this money for organization of different events.
To pass the law on medical marijuana (cannabis) use in Serbia for all the people who need it.
To pass the law on self-medication (the rights of patients to use natural alternative treatments at the expense of health insurance).
To change other laws concerning the regulation of cannabis, decriminalize cannabis for personal use (with possibility to grow small amount for personal use) and legalization of hemp. As well as the launch of the new ecological industries, based on the production and processing of hemp.
We are also planning to establish local social cannabis clubs, like other countries have done; in order to meet the needs of sick people and collective growing, and this would be the first step towards the establishment of social clubs.
Each and every day at least 60 people die of cancer while 100 people get sick. Most of them are young people, under 30 years old.
Serbia has the worst health system in Europe and her citizens are among poorest in the world, and that is why she has to make possible for all the people to use and obtain this plant which is the most efficient natural medicine (with very little or none harmful consequences).
The law which is necessary to pass has to, first of all, respect the rights of patients, to enable personal growing as well as authorized non- profit growers in case the patients cannot grow themselves. This law is very important because it would enable the quality control for the seeds and organic production of the plant, which is very important for the patients and the efficient treatment.
Internet page topics
Education, gathering of medicinal literature, research on medical cannabis use. Using hemp for production of bio-fuel, plastic, paper, building materials, textiles food and medicines.
We want to explain to people that the hemp/marijuana is not a drug but a plant that can be widely used in industry and medicine.
