Aggression happened in a session that discusses a bill that tries to make the commercialization of medicines with the extract or parts of the plant viable
The deputy Paulo Teixeira (PT-SP), chairman of the special committee that discusses drugs formulated with cannabis, was attacked by the parliamentarian Diego Garcia (We can PR), who did not accept a decision on the topic in a session that took place on the morning of this Tuesday, 18, at Chamber of Deputies. The commission is discussing a 2015 bill that tries to make it possible to sell medicines with the extract or parts of Cannabis sativa. The images from the session show Garcia pushing Teixeira and removing his microphone. While some parliamentarians stood up to separate the discussion, others shouted to call security, in addition to demanding respect. The PT shared the video on his Twitter.
