MARIJUANA POLICY: FROM REGULATION TO LEGALIZATION… DIANOVA JOINS THE DEBATE WITH WORLDWIDE EXPERTS!

Marijuana is by far the most widely consumed illicit substance in the world, estimated to be consumed by 180 million people (3,9% 15-64 years old of the world population). In European Union, marijuana increased its use on life long to 12%. In view of the scope of the phenomenon, it appears reasonable to question policies that are obviously ineffective. However, should we go as far as to legalize marijuana? In any case this is the approach adopted by some. Rightly or wrongly? Let’s open the debate.
