The road to blazing just got another cobblestone laid down, this time in the country of Italy. Both political parties surprised everyone by supporting the idea of marijuana legalization in a country that has previously had a tumultuous stance on bud. More than 60 politicians backed a law that proposed legalization of weed nationwide.
According to Della Vedova, “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.”
Weed’s speed is picking up around the globe. Who do you think will be the next to legalize?
