Yarmoshyna: Candidate urged to legalize marihuana, speech not to be broadcast


The speech of the parliamentary candidate who urged to legalize marihuana will not be shown on TV, CEC chairperson Lidziya Yarmoshyna announced at a press conference on Tuesday. Pavel Stefanovich’s (UCP member) speech was supposed to be shown on Belarus-3. However, the channel employees sent the speech to an expertise in the Central Election Commission.

“Doesn’t UCP have any other problems to solve? The candidate showed the programme ‘One Million Jobs’ at the end of his speech. It was clear where they would find those jobs,” Lidziya Yarmoshyna said.
