Italy’s Supreme Court on December 19 ruled that growing small quantities of cannabis at home for private usage is legal, in a landmark verdict.

The farming and selling of marijuana was barred under legislation which dates back to the 1990s but contradictory court decisions since then have generated uncertainty around the law.

The court declared the crime of growing narcotic drugs should exclude “small amounts grown domestically for the exclusive use of the grower”.

The court’s reasoning behind the decision has not yet been made public and a thorough, in-depth ruling will not be released for weeks or even months.
