A group of academics in Spain, presented in Madrid today a proposal to regulate Cannabis nationwide.
June 20 – GEPCA (A Cannabis Policy Study Group, in Spain) has presented a new model of cannabis regulation in Madrid this morning in a book entitled “Cannabis, from margins to normality. Towards a new model of regulation”.
This proposal is written by prestigious academics, among whom we find figures such as Xavier Arana, Domingo Comas, María Teresa Laespada, Oriol Romaní, José Carlos Bouso, Juan Muñoz, Eusebio Mejías, Josep Rovira, Gabriel Miró and Òscar Parés, among others.
The book is developed in two parts. In the first one, the issue of cannabis is analyzed in an interdisciplinary way, from a vision ranging from Human Rights to Criminal Law, through disciplines such as pharmacology and risk prevention, all based on evidence.
And the second part is a regulation proposal for the Spanish State which includes a complete regulation of the cannabis cycle, with three basic pillars: a regulated market, user associations (CSC) and home grow.
A significant sample that progresses with solid steps toward a regulation of cannabis in the Spanish State. And the result of many years of work of the academic world to find the best conditions of regulation for society: for users and non-users.
