🌐 Colombia — President Santos legalizes the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes
On 22 December President Juan Manuel Santos signed a decree that legalizes the medical use of cannabis, a move he says does not weaken the government's fight against illicit crops and drug trafficking. "Allowing the use of marijuana does not go against our international commitments to control drugs or against our policy of fighting drug trafficking," Santos told reporters after signing the decree.
