Medical Cannabis
A few days ago, a few meters from my house, there is a pharmacy that sells medical cannabis.
Is from the 70s, that in Italy there is a movement to legalize cannabis, but still, the law consider marijuana like heroin and cocaine and who is in possession is sentenced as if it were a drug dealer, because the Italian law considers detention as drug dealing.
In the early twentieth century Italy was the second nation in the world for the quantity of hemp for fiber produced, and was preceded in the ranking, from Russia alone, and since the early '50s, this production was prohibited.

Even in Italy, this plant was used as a instrument of political struggle and propaganda, both by the Catholic Church for almost all political parties, a very sad thing, this.
Here, an interesting documentary about the medical use of cannabis:
