Axar.az reports that, Georgia had started the legalization of marijuana: on Saturday, the constitutional court legalized the use of the drug in small volumes, excluding its sales. Selling the drug remains a criminal offence. However, the court intends to address the issue of the unconstitutionality of criminal punishment for repeated use, acquisition, possession and manufacture of drugs for personal use.

The court pointed out that the acquisition and storage of up to 70 grams of marijuana in itself does not indicate the purpose or the real risk of marketing, and imprisonment for such an act is inhuman treatment.

Drug use in Georgia is an administrative punishment, if the offender caught for the first time, and the criminal, if such fact will be recorded again. In the period from January to October there were about 4 thousand drug-related crimes, half of which is associated with repeated drug use, said “Georgia online”.

According to official data, in Georgia, for every 10 thousand people accounted for 29 drug addicts. The most common drug is cannabis – it uses 63.9% of the total number of addicts.

As reminds Interfax criminal penalties for possession and distribution of marijuana – up to 11 years in prison.
