coloLegislation to allow for the medical use of cannabis has been approved with a 13 to 2 vote by a Colombia Senate committee. The proposal, which is supported by President Juan Manuel Santos, now heads toward a full Senate vote.

If approved into law, the proposal – put forth by Senator Juan Manuel Galán – would legalize the possession, use and private cultivation of cannabis for those who receive a recommendation from a physician.
