The legalization of light drugs is one of the flagships of the electoral campaign of Democratic party. A battle that the dem have been carrying on for years now, also relaunched by Andrea Crisanti. The microbiologist, nominated as leader by the dem, opened to cannabis: “It has a recreational function and legalization also has the function of blocking illegal trade, thus stealing money from organized crime. Then, personally, I think that smoking does much more damage than an occasional soft drug, I say this sincerely “. Words that have sparked the debate on the web, now the stance of Matteo Bassetti.
The infectious disease specialist of the San Martino di Genova blamed his colleague’s exit in no uncertain terms. Contacted byAdnkronos HealthBassetti stressed that he has always been against all kinds of drug for recreational, social and recreational purposes:“Having seen the damage direct hard drugs, and indirect ones (syringe transmission of hepatitis B, C and HIV) a doctor should always be against all drugs. Each drug affects our nervous system (and beyond) and leads to addiction “.
Disassemble the theses of Crisanti, then. Bassetti said he was against any kind of legalization, noting that soft drugs are often the antechamber of hard drugs: “What do we do, approve marijuana today and cocaine tomorrow? It seems to me a rather unfortunate election, especially if done by a doctor “.
A clear, categorical dismissal. Bassetti’s words also follow the comment by Matteo Salvini, also firmly against the liberalization of cannabis. These are the words of him during a rally in Palermo: “Today (yesterday, ed) I heard the televirologist Crisanti, candidate with the Democratic Party, say that there is nothing wrong with growing marijuana at home. To me, those who want to keep drugs at home are scary: it is crazy to talk about drugs that are less harmful than others “..
