Chile: Medical cannabis
Two Chilean lawmakers plan to introduce a bill to legalize
medical cannabis after recent high profile arrests of a wealthy
grandmother and a retired economist for growing the drug for
medical purposes sparked national debate. Laura Soto of the
Party for Democracy which is part of the ruling centre-left
Concertacion coalition and her party colleague Antonio Leal
said they would introduce their bill in the coming days. The
proposal would make cannabis available through pharmacies
and eliminate penalties for people who grow cannabis for
personal medicinal use. One of the arrested subjects is Maria
Luisa Velasco, the ex-wife of a former senator. (Source: Reuters
