They want to bring the subject to the heart of the presidential debate.

At the end of a day of conferences on the question, elected officials and members of civil society in Marseille are questioning the candidates for the presidential election this Saturday at 7 p.m. at Parc Chanot in Marseille on the question of the legalization of cannabis.

“We are going to ask the candidates, or their representatives, to take a position on the subject, details Sergio Coronado, environmental activist.

The war on drugs is not working.

Magistrates, lawyers, police… They are unanimous on the subject.

We know that phenomenal sums are spent on prohibition, that a large part of police action is futile action.

And we have the highest consumption rates in France.


EELV, LFI and the NPA present

According to Sergio Coronado, representatives of Yannick Jadot (EELV), Jean-Luc Mélenchon (LFI) and Philippe Poutou (NPA) will be present.

“The PCF did not deign to answer us, plague Sergio Coronado.

We also asked the PS, through Marie-Arlette Carlotti.

And it's "Courage, let's flee".

We also insistently invited a LREM representative.

We had confirmation from MP Saïd Ahamada, who told us that in the end he was no longer coming.

This Thursday, Emmanuel Macron reiterated his opposition to legalization.

According to figures provided by the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) in September 2021, 44.8% of French people aged 15-64 have already used cannabis at least once.
