Italian Referendum To Decriminalize Marijuana, Psilocybin And Other Drug Plants Gets Half A Million Signatures
You may want to postpone your trip to Italy till next year 😉
Italian activists collected 500,000 signatures in favour of a referendum to decriminalize marijuana and psilocybin – enough to qualify for a ballot measure!
The referendum would remove Italy’s prohibition on cultivating psychoactive substances, but the further processing required to produce most narcotics would remain illegal. Fortunately, magic mushrooms are ready to enjoy after cultivation alone!
A vote is expected to take place in spring of 2022 given that the Court of Cassation and the Constitutional Court sign off on the measure after reviewing the petition.
