Denmark Moving Closer to Medical Cannabis Legalization?
Denmark could be set to become the next country to legalize medical cannabis after a survey of politicians in the country returned a majority vote for legalization.
The survey, conducted by national broadcaster DR reported that six of Denmark’s nine main political parties are in favour of early stage trials leading to nationwide legalization.
This isn’t the first time that Denmark have made bold statement regarding the possible legalization of medical cannabis. In 2015, the Alternativet party constructed a proposal that recommended creating cannabis farming communities to boost the economy of the struggling island communities in the country.
Medical trials can only take place if Danish Parliament decide to legalize following an official majority verdict. Despite the survey essentially meaning nothing in terms of official polling, it suggests that when another proposal is put forward in parliament, it will be backed overwhelmingly.
