Summary

Members of France Insoumise have tabled a bill to legalize the consumption of cannabis in France. It will be debated on January 13 in the Assembly but, given the opposition of the government, it has every chance of being rejected. The debate scheduled for January 13 should however end in its rejection, the government remaining opposed to such a measure. Tabled by deputies from France Insoumise, but also signed by deputies from five other parliamentary groups, including LREM (Caroline Janvier, Jean-Baptiste Moreau), it aims to “legalize the production, sale and consumption of cannabis under state control”. According to them, “the purely repressive approach has shown its limits in terms of reducing the consumption of narcotics and the risks associated with it”.
