The State Institute for Drug Control has made two bids for a cannabis
supplier in the past, but they failed to meet the necessary qualifications
required in the tender. The new tender was announced this week in the
Journal of Public Procurement.
Just like in the previous tenders, the institute is looking for someone to
supply 40 kilogrammes of medicinal cannabis, which has to meet the quality
standards approved by a laboratory. The contract would last for a maximum
of 48 months.
Until the end of January this year, Czech patients could buy medicinal
cannabis provided by a domestic supplier, a company called Elkoplast
Slušovice. However, the contract with the company ended last year and no
replacement had been found so far.
