The appeal of a young man who grew cannabis in his backyard was accepted. New orientation of the Supreme Court. The Court of Appeal of Naples had already partially reformed the sentence of first instance by acquitting the defendant of the crime of possession of narcotic substances.
An epochal sentence on cannabis: the Court of Cassation ruled for the first time that “the cultivation activities of minimum dimensions carried out in the home garden do not constitute a crime”.
This is the latest thesis of the Court of Cassation which, with judgment 8442/23 published on 24 February 2023, upheld the appeal of a young man who grew cannabis in his backyard.
