A citizens’ initiative to legalise cannabis is set to be debated in Finnish parliament after gathering more than 50,000 signatures.
Politicians will debate the legalisation of cannabis in Finland in after a citizens’ initiative gained enough support from members of the public.
The initiative calls for the legalisation of the use, possession, personal cultivation, manufacture and sale of cannabis in Finland, subject to age restrictions.
It aims to stop the harm caused by prohibition and build a ‘sustainable regulatory system’ that ‘protects and promotes human rights and public health, reduces crime, corruption and violence and protects children and young people’.
