Poland moves towards medical marijuana
Poland is as conservative a European country as you will come across. The catholic church still dominates society. That means no gay people, sex is a sin and don’t even talk to me about cannabis! So when reports come out that the speaker of Poland’s lower house of parliament (Malgorzata Kidawa-Blonska) says the subject will be debated in the next parliament, it is huge news. Kidawa Blonska is a member of the senior coalition party, and together with the Minister of health, Marian Zembala, understand and publicly have stated that the plant has important medical benefits. To have such high ranking members of the political system moving towards cannabis is a revolution in itself. Almost 70 percent of Polish people support medical marijuana, so it is about time that the political stiffs caught up with the people!
