Italian MPs to debate controversial cannabis law

Italian lawmakers are considering a law that would allow people to grow up to five cannabis plants for personal use and keep up to 15 grams of marijuana at home and five grams on their personWere the draft to pass into law, people would be allowed to grow up to five cannabis plants for personal use and keep up to 15 grams of marijuana at home and five grams on their person. It would still be illegal for people to buy or sell weed or smoke marijuana in public, but the Italian state could start issuing licenses allowing the drug to be grown and sold in a similar way to tobacco. Several European countries, as well as a number of US states, have legalised marijuana in recent years, both for medical and recreational use.
