The legislator of the PTS-Left Front Patricio del Corro declared: "We will participate actively in this national march. Maintaining illegal marijuana not only facilitates the huge business of drug trafficking, it is also used by the damn police to persecute and criminalize youth. " In the Legislature of the City of Buenos Aires, the deputy promoted the debate and support in the National Congress to the bill presented by the former deputy of the Left Front, Myriam Bregman, on the legalization of marijuana.
For his part Nicolás del Caño, former presidential candidate of the left, explained that "it seems very important to participate in this mobilization, as we have done in all instances since the PTS. In this instance, those who carry out a self-cultivation for personal and medicinal consumption will be called back against the persecution. Legalization attacks the drug trafficker, that explains the refusal of many sectors to regularize cannabis.Instead, they increasingly pose punishment and punitiveness about youth and users.From the Left Front, we have a project in the Chamber of Deputies of the National Congress that we have presented together with Myriam Bregman that raises the legalization of marijuana, which received the support of many organizations that have been claiming for a long time.
The call text develops the most relevant points of the claim:
"Self-cultivation: For the immediate end of the raids, detentions and criminal proceedings against cannabis growers.
Regulation: For the regulation of the Social Clubs of Solidarity and Collective Cultivation for access to cannabis and its seeds.
Tenure: Due to the urgent cessation of arrests and criminal proceedings against users for the simple possession of prohibited psychoactive substances.
Health: For the implementation of a law of public, universal and free care that develops programs and massive campaigns of prevention and reduction of damages, destined to users with problematic consumption.
