Spanish congress to debate legalizing medicinal cannabis

As reported by the Spanish Medicinal Cannabis Observatory (OECM), the subcommittee of the Health and Consumption Commission of Congress will meet for the first time, next Wednesday, February 16, to debate a move towards legalizing medicinal cannabis in Spain.

This will be the first time that the Lower House has even debated such action. During this meeting, it is believed that the subcommittee will determine which speakers will provide scientific evidence on the matter.

Also, they will probably decide which countries these speakers will come from, and which experiences they will relate to. According to the OECM, the debate will constitute “the first stone on this path that started in June”, where a report will be prepared, then sent to the Government.

Parliamentary sources said there is hope that this new law can be approved “as soon as possible”, maybe even before summer. The same sources assured the OECM that the debate could probably be terminated before June 30, although the Observatory prefers to remain optimistic and be cautious regarding forecasts.
