- Policy Medical cannabis regularization comes to Congress again

The main opposition party in the Valeques assembly is going to defend a motion no law (PNL) this Thursday on the regulation of marijuana use—not just for medical purposes—to combat the black market, by hindering access to minors. Protecting and guaranteeing their public health by offering a product to adult users that meets all certified quality standards.
On the other hand, the regional president feels that the debate the pleasure of smoking couples And trying to transfer the values to the society and especially to the young people, who, on the contrary, is disappointing them and alienating them from the noble and true causes. The issue of drugs cannot be trivialized and although it is not popular, I intend to fight against it, he assured in an interview on Telecinco yesterday.
In the text of her initiative, Ms Madrid argues ineffectiveness of the current law When it comes to limiting illegal supply and consumption as prohibition is not able to present a single positive indicator. Furthermore, it maintains that regulation must be made for both public health reasons and to protect liberties: criminalization and discrimination must stop if an adult person is determined to be a cannabis user.

But the economic impact goes beyond direct sales (…), the creation of university degrees, research, professional training, fairs, rural tourism, treatments and even a potential export, he explains.
Similarly, Ms Madrid believes legalization could be an opportunity Diversify the harvest and fortify the Spanish countryside, He also believes that for the measure to be effective and fair, it must be comprehensive, because if it only allowed the planting of cannabis seeds for personal consumption, users who could not access it as such would have to Will continue to be accessed through the black market, which he urges to be authorized for sale in social clubs, licensed access points and pharmacies.

I am totally against drugs And to transfer it to society, and of course, to young people, who are not so harmful, this Wednesday, for his part, assured Ayuso.
