Brazil moves closer to legalizing cannabis

Another country has recognized the benefits cannabis has to offer and has moved to legalize cannabis for its constituents.

A Senate committee in Brazil approved a bill earlier this week that will allow for cultivating and using cannabis for medical conditions.

The bill has been approved by the Senate’s Social Affairs Committee, according to Marijuana Moment, but the legislation will still need to be passed in the Commission on Constitution and Justice before the Senate can vote on it. If it is approved by the Senate, it will still need approval from the Chamber of Deputies.
