Over 60 Italian Lawmakers Sign Motion to Legalize Cannabis

Over 60 italymembers of Italy’s Parliament have signed a motion to legalize recreational cannabis.

“It is a bipartisan proposition from members of the parliament of different political backgrounds.” says Senator Benedetto Della Vedova, a Parliamentary undersecretary in the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs. “This shows that even in Italy a pragmatic approach, based on a rigorous cost / benefit analysis, is now increasingly popular in the political and cultural debate, not only outside but also inside the Parliament.”

According to Vedova; “In view of the failure of prohibition the group will draft a pragmatic, non-ideological bill regulating the use of the weed, thereby syphoning profits away from organised crime”. He notes that “Repressive action has totally failed.”

Lawmakers hope to have legalization legislation drafted, and before Parliament by the summer.
