The Agriculture Commission of the Congress of Deputies in Spain approved a non-legislative proposal (PNL) presented by the United We can, Republican Left of Catalonia, and Bildu to regulate industrial hemp in the country. This measure was welcomed by many in the sector, as it will provide legal certainty to the activities of production, marketing and consumption of products derived from industrial hemp. The proposal received 22 votes in favor and 15 against. Today, a hearing is being held at the Spanish Congress to debate medical cannabis.
Passage of this hemp proposal is significant because it differs from other cannabis measures that were introduced to Congress last year. It is important to note that non-legislative proposals such as this one are not binding and do not become law. However, they show the position of a committee on a subject.
