Russians look at legalization

This is certainly interesting.
Georgian officials consider legalizing marijuana
TBILISI, November 8 (RIA Novosti) - Representatives of the Council for Drug Policy under the Georgian Ministry of Health and Social Welfare said marijuana might be legalized in the country.

"Introducing such amendments to the country's legislation will reduce the number of drug-related crimes," council chairperson Tamara Sirbiladze told Novosti-Georgia.

Proposals to legalize the use of marijuana will be discussed in the near future at a special conference arranged by the council's press club.
One wonders why a government agency has a press club but it sounds like an entirely sensible proposition to me.
