Italy’s CBD Ban Suspended Until January, Switzerland Approves 6th Adult-Use Trial, & Malta’s First Cannabis Clubs to Launch in Q1 2024
Italy’s CBD ban pushed back further by court
Last week, Italy’s Regional Administrative Court of Lazio (TAR) confirmed its position, ruling in favour of suspending a decree that would make CBD oil a narcotic substance until January 16, 2024.
In early October, Business of Cannabis reported that the TAR of Lazio, the same regional court responsible for overturning a similar decree making hemp flower a narcotic in February, had suspended the decree until October 24.
This initial suspension has now been extended by nearly three months, with a new hearing to consider the decree’s merits pencilled in for mid-January, following the submission of an appeal by the Ministry of Health.
