The President of the Pharmacy Association in Zurich, Valeria Dora, says that more and more people in Switzerland are consuming cannabis, and that selling it legally would provide users with safe products and combat criminals profiting on the black market. The group has penned a position paper stating its desire to decriminalise marijuana for medical and recreational use. Experts have praised the move, saying it is the right thing to do and that the necessary infrastructure and staff already exists. Dora, who represents around 110 Zurich-based pharmacies, says the reality of cannabis use in Switzerland cannot be ignored any longer.
