Work on the project is ongoing and consultations with parliamentarians is still underway in order to find a legal formula that is acceptable to all parties. The coalition said that it is consulting with parliamentarians to develop legal frameworks for the production and consumption of cannabis, under which the state would reverse the sole right to produce and distribute cannabis, as well as that it would be entrusted with monitoring and regulation.
