Belgium’s deputy prime minister has advocated the legalization of cannabis in the country, Belgian media reported on Thursday.

“We must end the hypocrisy,” Pierre-Yves Dermagne told the daily L’Avenir in an interview, as reported by the broadcaster RTBF.

“We must consider legalizing cannabis in Belgium,” he said, adding that it is no longer worthwhile to “peruse, arrest, and imprison” people involved in cannabis consumption or sales.
