  3. If it was some type of synthetic drug that was a global issue, I would understand. But weed? Big deal! I hope that the authorities recognize that this plant can actually help sick people and perhaps permit those people to have it instead of destroying it all. There are already several states in the US that have legalized CBD/THC for medical purposes. With the Balkans having poor economies, this would legalization could provide a good boost as well.

  5. "12 members of a group that on Wednesday morning opened fire at the Albanian police, killing one officer and wounding two others, have been arrested."

    I feel sorry for them. They couldn't escape to Kosovo, where they would have been awarded with a honorary medal in the university of Pristina.

  7. Is there movement to legalize this drug in Albania?
    I say a drug which makes people mellow should be encouraged among Albanians. And yet, people who've visited there say the air is thick with the scent, and despite this the people there are very violent. Maybe cannabis does't work on the Albanian temper.
