Cannabis laws in Italy
Marijuana is fairly well accepted in Italian society and the laws are not very strict. Things have been getting even better in recent years, with medicinal marijuana being legalized in 2013 and cigarettes with a light concentration of cannabis being legal since 2017. Currently, however, cannabis is illegal for recreational use. Possession of small amounts of weed, meant for personal use is decriminalized and treated as a misdemeanor.
