Italian Court Rules Hemp Flower And Leaves Are Not Narcotic In Latest Victory For Industry

February 27, 2023 from BusinessCann

AN Italian court has overturned an ‘absurdly restrictive’ decree which meant hemp leaves and flowers were considered narcotics in the eyes of regulators.

The decision, which was made by the Lazio Regional Administrative Court last week (February 14), means that Italy’s national law now no longer contravenes the 2020 Kanavape ruling of the European Union’s Court of Justice (ECJ).

As hemp and CBD businesses continue to fight for their right to operate freely across a number of EU countries which have chosen to diverge from the ECJ’s decision, Italy’s annulment will serve as the latest weapon in their arsenal.
