Is Italy about to legalize cannabis?

Proposals that would largely decriminalize marijuana in Italy have the support of 250 MPs – but does that mean Italy will be legalizing the drug any time soon?

Under a new law proposal in Italy, people over the age of 18 could cultivate up to five plants at home and growers could set up social clubs involving a maximum of 50 people and 250 plants. The scope of social clubs would be to provide spaces for growers to consume and share their product, but would prohibit them from profiting from the sale of cannabis. The general sale would instead be under the control of a state monopoly that would licence dedicated shops. The proposed legislation was drafted by the parliamentary intergroup, Cannabis Legale, and presented to parliament on July 15, 2015.
