"At a time when a not exactly irrelevant part and a not exactly negligible ally of Italy, such as Germany, seems to be profoundly changing the line on this front, I believe that it is inevitable that some reflection will also be made in our country". This was stated by the Minister of Labor Andrea Orlando in Genoa at the VI National Conference on Addictions referring to the announced legalization of cannabis in Germany. "Also because that choice will determine repercussions that will affect our country, whether we like it or not in the context of a single market with open borders", said the minister.



"Compared to 2019, there was an increase of about 8% in drug seizures in 2020. However, compared to the two-year period 2017 and 2018, when the seizures reached 120 tons of drugs, there was an estimated reduction trend of 70 tons. The decreases concern almost all substances, with the exception of cocaine, synthetic drugs and cannabis. In 2020 there was an all-time record in cocaine seizures, almost 13 tons were seized, a quantity never reached before . As regards synthetic drugs, the figure for seizures is + 13.9% ". Thus the Minister of the Interior, Luciana Lamorgese at the VI National Conference on addictions in Genoa.Lamorgese also cited a Cnr study on the prevalence of drugs and alcohol in Italy which showed that 19% of boys between 15 and 19 years of age took illegal psychoactive substances. For the minister "the incidence of drug use in road accidents is also very high. In the last 6 years the traffic police have carried out checks on over 7 thousand drivers and more than 10% have been fined for driving under the influence of drugs"...



"I say clearly that I am part of a thought, of a cultural current, which is not only opposed to any form of legalization of any type of narcotic substance, but I am also convinced that there is no freedom to take drugs but that the action of State can and should only focus on drug liberation. " Thus the Minister for Autonomies, Maria Stella Gelmini, at the VI National Conference on addictions in Genoa, welcomed in this passage by some applause, which also reiterated that "within the Government there are different sensitivities on this issue".



"The role of the ministry in involving the production of cannabis for medical purposes is an agricultural activity that is giving important results. We are available to collaborate with the Ministry of Health. The shared goal is to continue with the production of cannabis for medical use". This was stated by Stefano Patuanelli, Minister of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies, speaking at the VI National Conference on Addictions - 'Beyond fragility'. "Prejudice - continued the minister - does not allow us to understand who is subject to addictions, now we need a constructive approach. The historical period is that of the upheaval for Covid and has highlighted how social fractures say that only common work frailties can be a prodromal element to addictions, toalcohol, the web, gambling. But let's tackle these issues without prejudice. Normal reintegration into society is what our children with addictions ask for. "



For Fabiana Dadone, Minister for Youth Policies of the Draghi government with responsibility for anti-drug policies, "the production of" medical cannabis "is not enough, not all doctors prescribe it, not all ASL reimburse it and this is serious. they all seem to agree then as soon as the word inflorescence appears the alarm goes off - he tells the Republic -. We are divided between pros and cons but the sick are forgotten ". As for cannabis for recreational use, he replies: "My position is known, I signed a bill in the past legislature on cultivation and personal use. And on the referendum, by marrying the tools of direct democracy,I think it is a way for the country to turn on a beacon on a topic that is out of the debate in the Palaces but is very much felt outside ". The minister speaks of the convening, after 12 years of absence, of the National Conference of Genoa on addictions:" My predecessors should be asked why the Conference has not been convened for so long ... "," a reform must come because on many fronts it no longer responds to current needs ". Even with Covid" the drug market is the only one which has never stopped ", he says. What are the emergencies to face today?" New psychoactive substances are rampant among young people. What must push us, however, is not only to trace the substances and seize them but to fill the unease behind them ", he replies.The minister speaks of the convening, after 12 years of absence, of the Genoa National Conference on addictions: "My predecessors should be asked why the Conference has not been convened for so long ...", "a reform must come because on many fronts no longer responds to current needs ".
