Lawmakers will soon be studying two very different draft laws on legalizing cannabis cultivation in Lebanon, after Speaker Nabih Berri Friday referred a bill presented by his bloc to Parliament's joint committees.The fact that Berri referred Amal's law directly to the joint committees – typically done to speed the passage of draft bills that would otherwise have to be approved by multiple standing committees individually – shows the speaker is serious about getting the law through Parliament.Habchi said he expected his law to be referred soon from specialized committees – where it has already been studied for several weeks according to Parliament Secretary-General Adnan Daher – to the joint committees in order for it to be discussed alongside Amal's law.
