The Swiss city of Zurich's parliament voted to call on the government to commission a national study on legalizing marijuana, local media said. The vote capped a lively discussion on the topic. In 2010, Zurich had already joined forces with the northern city of Basel to set up a task force on the feasibility of a pilot project that would allow the controlled sale of cannabis.
