Italian Army to grow cannabis

Pursuant to an agreement between the Italian Ministries of Defense and Health, the Italian Army will start the production of cannabis for medical use.

The production will be a task of the Florence Army Drugs Institute, founded in 1853.

It was feared that the Health Ministry would never give its green light to the initiative since Minister of Health Beatrice Lorenzin belongs to the conservative party New Right. An agreement was finally reached, however.
