Lebanon’s Parliament Preparing To Vote On Legalizing Cannabis

Lebanon’s parliament is preparing to vote on a law that would legalise the farming of cannabis for medical and industrial employment in an attempt to increase its broken economy and control illegal production of the psychoactive plant.

The draft law, which has been supported by parliamentary committees and is now gone for a final vote, would barely affect cannabis that includes less than one percent of the psychoactive composite tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

THC provides cannabis with the recreational impacts that have made it the most widely used illicit substance across the globe. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that around 147 million people, or 2.5 per cent of the world population, consume cannabis.
