The Minister of Health of the Russian Federation, Veronika Skvortsova, stated this in her interview to ‘Vesti FM’ radio.

“We strongly oppose the legalization of soft drugs. Any drugs that somehow modify the mental and emotional functions of a person are harmful,” said Mrs. Skvortsova.

She noted that these kind medicines “can be used for the medical treatment of a particular individual. But only for a short time and under the supervision of a physician, in order to get out from some pathological conditions.”
