Ireland's Health Minister has said he hopes to roll out a new law around legalising cannabis for medicinal use in 2019.

Israel will likely allow exports of medical cannabis by the end of the year, a top lawmaker said on Thursday, a move that would boost state coffers and slow the growing number of firms establishing farms abroad.

Around the world attitudes towards the use of cannabis are shifting.

South Korea has legalized medical marijuana, making it the first East Asian nation to legalize the medicinal use of cannabis.

Big companies are making inroads into a potentially lucrative market, but legislators aren’t moving at the same speed.

The UK’s first cannabis restaurant – focused around the ingredient cannabidiol (CBD) – is set to open in Brighton.
