The Parliament to adopt the Bill on Drug-Policy at the Spring Session

Clearly, the positions are not reconciled yet, however we shall resume our positions soon and start consideration of the Bill concerning the drug policy in Georgia”, - the Speaker stated.

According to Irakli Kobakhidze, the reconciliation of the positions is the main factor, as well as submission of the reasonable arguments to adopt the Bill at the spring session and end the discussions. 

During the spring session we shall necessarily adopt the Bill to finally end the discussions related to the drug policy amongst the society. The positions shall be reconciled. We still have dissents within the team, so we encounter the same complications as regarding the Public Broadcaster. We need the reasonable arguments. I have already stated that I have not heard any good argument from any of the parties, which I was criticized for. However, today I can reiterate the same that neither one nor another party – I mean supporters of more liberal approaches and less liberal approaches – provided any good arguments. There are some superficial discussions but we need deeper consideration to simplify decision-making on the drug policy”.
