Good cannabis news from Bulgaria
Bulgaria is the next European country to make headlines for cannabis. Member of parliament Velar Enchev Penkov will introduce legislation this month calling for the adoption of cannabis to treat illness in the country.
Velar is a former spy and all round independent thinker. He has launched an online petition to have the laws reformed in his country. In June he submitted a list of illnesses that can be treated by the plant to parliament. Specifically he referred to a case involving a MS sufferer being brought before a judge for growing cannabis. Marin Kalchev was later acquitted by a Bulgarian judge who cited international studies confirming the effectiveness of cannabis treatment. Sick people are suffering as our politicians debate legalization.
