Colombian Justice Minister Néstor Osuna reaffirms President Gustavo Petro's government's support for lifting the ban on marijuana consumption.

Colombian Minister of Justice, Néstor Osuna, reaffirmed during a debate in the Senate that President Gustavo Petro's government supports the abolition of the ban on marijuana consumption.
