Daily Beast Asks: ‘Could Legalizing Pot in Europe Help Stop ISIS?’

Posted on 20 April 2016

An Italian anti-Mafia prosecutor wants to make marijuana use legal in an effort to cut off profits for ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) streaming in from its drug trafficking through Libya, according to an article posted on Wednesday by Barbie Latza Nadeau, Rome bureau chief for the liberal Daily Beast website.

“It's well known that ISIS leaders are are punishing those who use recreational drugs, which is against their peculiar version of sharia law,” Nadeau noted. “But the terror group apparently doesn’t have a problem with pushing those same drugs for profit -- which is why it's been teaming up with the Sicilian Mafia to cash in on the lucrative trade.”
