Ukraine proposed to hold a referendum on marijuana legalization

The issues of legalization of marijuana and prostitution in Ukraine should be solved in a referendum format. This was stated by Deputy Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko on September 8.

“Someday we will come to this too, but society is not ready for it yet”, – he explained his opinion on the air of TV channel “Ukraine 24”. As the Deputy Minister added, we are talking about legalization of marijuana use only for treatment.

Only those who have received prescriptions should be allowed to use drugs. Marijuana should be prescribed only if the drugs cannot be replaced by others.

Also Herashchenko supported the position of Germany on prostitution. He recalled that prostitutes are allowed to work there, they pay taxes, and the country provides them with regular medical examinations.
