Sanpa. Where did we leave off? Where are we now?
In Italy the documentary on San Patrignano community has started a wide debate on drugs. A lot has changed from the '80's and '90's: the fight for de-crimininalization of drug use has won support, harm reduction is now part of the public drug policies, a significant part of Italians agree on cannabis legalization. But the current debate shows also that there is a “long shadow” of those years: drug use paradigm, PWUD stigma and human rights violation didn't change in public opinion, and in political and mass media discourse.
