While Emmanuel Macron is making cannabis trafficking a priority for the next presidential elections, an LREM MP affirms



A hot debate, one year before the presidential elections, and a speech in opposition to his own political party and the executive.

Caroline Janvier, LREM MP for Loiret unveils a report on the management of cannabis in France.

She affirms that the repressive management since the 1970s carried out by France against this drug is a mistake and that we must think about a "framed legalization" of cannabis.

Currently, for the deputy, the repressive policy is expensive and does not contribute to absorb the traffic.

"The facts are there to show it," explains MP Caroline Janvier.

In Portugal, where consumption is much lower than in France, they have changed their approach for 20 years by stopping to consider consumers as criminals and by focusing on public health and prevention.

The fight against hashish trafficking is costing the French state dearly when it could bring in money.

“If we add up all the resources, it's one billion euros per year, according to Caroline Janvier.

It is a market valued at several billion euros.

We need a French sector.
