Italian City Of Turin Votes In Favor Of Medical Marijuana Legalization

Last week the city council of Turin, Italy approved a motion in favor of legalizing medical marijuana. This makes Turin the first major city in Italy to do so. As is the case in cities in the United States that have reformed marijuana at the local level, it’s more symbolic than anything, as the vote is not legally binding and will no doubt be superseded by the national government.

That’s because District activists, led by the indefatigable Adam Eidinger and the DC Cannabis Campaign have filed a marijuana legalization initiative with DC officials and are determined to move forward with it.

Hawaii’s House of Representative Speak Joe Souki stated the need to legalize medical marijuana dispensaries in Hawaii during the opening ceremony of the 2014 Hawaii Legislature this week. Joe Souki pointed out that while over 12,000 Hawaii residents are medical marijuana patients, they have to grow their own marijuana or go without. That’s a flaw in the current law.
