Fico: Having a Joint is No Way to Make Legislation
PM Robert Fico is still clinging to the label he put on the liberal Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party as a group of pot smokers, as they have always supported the decriminalisation of marijuana.
Remarking on a legislative proposal from the SaS party on reducing the number of MPs (from 150 to 100) and on their criminal immunity, Fico said he rejected how “It was easy-peasy to have a joint over dinner and then take a decision”, adding that it was disrespectful to the Constitution.
Head of the SaS party Richard Sulik reacted by saying the remarks of the Prime Minister were undignified and hardly fitting for a PM. Sulik said the comments were just a way of drawing attention away from how Fico’s Smer-SD party has no solutions to the country’s serious economic problems.
