Italy’s courts cracks down on cannabis shops

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Italy’s Supreme court on Thursday banned the sale of many widely sold cannabis derivatives.

The decision is considered a win for Deputy Prime Minister and League leader Matteo Salvini who had declared war on the so-called “legal-weed” shops.

Under 2016 legislation, cannabis with a psychotropic active ingredient (THC) level below 0.6 percent can be freely cultivated and sold in Italy.

But according to the latest ruling, the sale of cannabis derivatives such as “oil, leaves, inflorescences and resin” does not fall within the scope of the law.

The ruling is likely to be a serious blow to the light weed commerce that has thrived in Italy in the last three years.
