International Marijuana Laws: Three Takes In Three Countries

sheet-of-money-hempThree countries, one week and three different public policy views about cannabis laws:

Switzerland — After years of debate, and with a number of cantons having already done so, the entire nation of Switzerland began a cannabis possession decriminalization policy for adults. This is not unlike similar penalties in fifteen states in America and likely a prelude to eventual legalization in the infamously ‘neutral’ country (certainly more than most countries as the Swiss have been largely neutral in the war on some drugs).

Romania — Romania became the tenth European country to allow citizens to access medical cannabis for serious medical conditions.

North Korea — A social conscience travel blogger writes about and photographs what it is like in North Korea and that there are no laws against cannabis.┬áThis may explain Dennis Rodman’s new fascination with visiting the country.
