The President of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, criticized a possible legalization of marijuana in his country, which was proposed by two senators opposing a bill introduced last Wednesday before Congress.

“In these times when some advocate or promote the legalization of drugs, I mean that the government of Chile has a strong commitment to combat drug use,” Pinera said in a ceremony in which launched a Bill Prevention of Drug and Alcohol.

The questions of Piñera came after opposition senators that Fulvio Rossi and Ricardo Lagos Weber, son of former President Ricardo Lagos, presented a bill in Congress to legalize the cultivation, and personal consumption of marijuana in Chile.
