On 15 February 2012, members of Aksion Plus were invited by the Committee of Law of the Albanian Parliament to attend a hearing session regarding drug policy and changes of Penal Code. We presented our views of the amendments of the existing Penal Code and we propose to define a fixed quantity for the personal use and not to sentence marijuana young users. To date young persons are sentenced to prison for a single joint of marijuana. This is an absurd situation that should be changed as soon as possible. Even in case of heroin users, they should not be punished for low risk crimes when under effects of substance. Contacts with members of the Parliament and the Committee of Law are ongoing and we hope that something will be achieved though the political situation is a bit uncertain as the elections fever are coming closer. More advocacy and lobbying should be developed in order to prepare the ground for expected changes and amendments
