ROME–Italy has suddenly been thrust into the forefront of the nascent European cannabis industry with a vote in parliament which legalized home-grow cannabis following a vote from their lower parliamentary house, similar to the US Congress.
The Italian reform decriminalizes growing up to four cannabis plants for personal use. Italy now one of first European countries to decriminalize recreational cannabis.
The reform, which was put forward by Italian MP Riccardo Magi, makes Italy one of the first countries in Europe to decriminalize the domestic cultivation of cannabis for personal use, with Spain and Czech Republic also permitting the growth of up to five plants at home.
