Let us imagine that we have, as consumers of marijuana, a favorite seed bank (for example, the Amnesia Haze), and that we have more or less clear whether in our city can be consumed, or is allowed to hold certain grams, Or if we can cultivate … This, which might seem like something to be easily safe, can be extremely complicated. But it is that in addition, nothing is what it seems in this subject, that defies all our stereotypes and prejudices, as it happens with any controversy that preks to be it. Problems related to cannabis are intricate because they have ramifications in pure and hard politics, health, economy (eg, taxes), security forces, international relations … The list would be endless.

Basque or central government?), Or in North American states where, from one kilometer to another, we pass From an absolute permissiveness to hard and unforgiving punishments.
In Israel, a country where almost everything is political, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan has announced a plan that would lead this country to the path of decriminalization. He affirms that every decision will be made considering the inevitable political consequences, but it moves definitively away from hard legislation to approach a policy of fines that could lead to the total decriminalization of playful use.
