The State against Cannabis

The article explores cannabis legislation in Slovenia and its implications for users and researchers – especially in the field of medical treatment. Through a review of legislative initiatives and research in other countries in Europe and around the world, it outlines an alternative to the current repressive regime, which in Slovenia, despite numerous, mainly citizen-driven, initiatives for change over the last ten years, has still not been changed in line with the latest findings, due to a lack of political will and bureaucratic hurdles. It analyses the Resolution on the National Drug Programme 2023–2030, which treats cannabis only as a prohibited drug and not as a medicine, which hinders research and its introduction into healthcare. It concludes that the state apparatus has proved repressive, dysfunctional and undemocratic in dealing with cannabis.
