Legal cannabis, Salvini: “it will never pass”

Interior Minister and deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini intervenes on the proposal to legalize cannabis deposited in the Senate by M5s member Matteo Mantero. “The bill to legalize the cultivation, processing and sale of cannabis and its derivatives is not in the government contract and will never pass , ” said the Northern League leader, who remembers that this is not a priority of the country.

“Every time Gian Marco Centinaio leaves the government contract, the 5-star colleague gets up and says ‘he is not in the government contract’ and so what I will say to his colleagues is ‘it’s not in the government contract’: they do a government with someone else “. This is Gian Marco Centinaio, Minister of Agricultural Policies, speaking of the proposal of the pentastellate parliamentarians on a less restrictive regulation on cannabis. Centinaio’s declarations come to the margins of an initiative by Coldiretti Toscana in Florence.

“To Minister Salvini who says that the legalization of cannabis will never pass, let’s say let it discuss and see what happens. We are sure that many supporters, and elected, of the League are privately in favor, in politics you must take responsibility, nothing better than discuss it freely and openly in the appropriate venues, “writes former Radical Senator Marco Perduca of the Luca Coscioni Association, which explains how they have collected over 68mile signatures to demand a legal regulation of the production, consumption and trade of cannabis and to decriminalize the use and possession of all other substances. “All measures that, among other things, would help the work of those who want to guarantee security through the fight against organized crime.

Legitimate defense: in the majority it is a truce. Armored text, goal ok in February

No amendment to the law on self-defense was presented by the 5 Star Movement and the League. The provision, approved by the Senate, is being examined by the House Justice Committee. At the end of the deadline for the presentation of amendments, set at 4:00 pm, a total of eighty are deposited, mainly for Forza Italia, Pd, LeU and mixed group.

“We have not compromised with the 5 Star Movement, for us the text of the measure approved by the Senate is perfect”. This was stated by the Northern League deputy Riccardo Marchetti, vice-president of the House Justice Committee regarding the draft law on self-defense, under discussion at Montecitorio and on which the Salvini party has not presented any amendments, as well as the M5s. “The text will go to the Chamber in early February, except for hitches that I do not believe will be there,” he added.

Forza Italy who criticized the text of the Lega ruling saying that it is less clear than what would have presented a center-right government, Marchetti replied: “It is also so”, and added: “The proposal of FI I do not say that is propaganda but certainly is a way to show that they are more determined .. “. Finally, on the criticism of having been limited by the M5s, Marchetti denied saying: “We were sure that, having already voted in the Senate, the 5S would have followed the Senate colleagues.The text has already been discussed and improved, we are confident”.
