(CNA)- David Sergeenko Minister of Health, Labour and Social Affairs of Georgia declare that mechanical ban of drugs develops other directions as the drugs market is characterized with an utmost flexibility.

“That’s why discussions on marijuana decrimilization are necessary,” stated the minister.

According to Sergeenki, issue of decrimilization of certain drugs definitely requires revision: “Strategic attitude is crucial here in order to avoid ricochet effect. The fact that active discussions are going around marihuana decrimilization does not mean that one fine day we’ll wake up and marijuana will be sold eat super markets.”

Legal punishment for the persons using marijuana may be weakened or annulled according to the draft amendments to the Criminal Code of Georgia. The issue has already been initiated at the parliament.

Experts will also be involved in the discussion of marijuana decriminalization. According to MP Eka Beselia, the chairperson of the human rights committee, the discussion on weakening punishing measures and decriminalizing of the marijuana crime has started. However, it does not mean that the government is encouraging marijuana usage.

The privileges may also be spread on other types of drugs.

She also did not rule out the privileges to touch other types of drugs.
