Berlin, BollywoodFever, February 24: Germany Joins Countries Legalizing Cannabis Cultivation and Possession

Germany made a significant move on Friday, joining a select group of nations and regions in legalizing cannabis. 

The Bundestag passed a law that permits individuals and voluntary associations to cultivate and possess limited amounts of the drug.

Under the legislation supported by Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s ruling coalition, individuals are allowed to grow up to three cannabis plants for personal use and possess up to 25 grams of the drug.

Additionally, non-commercial cannabis production on a larger scale will be permitted for members of cannabis clubs, limited to 500 adult members who can exclusively consume the product.

Health Minister Karl Lauterbach emphasized the law’s objectives: combating the black market and enhancing the protection of children and young people.

 However, during a contentious debate, opposition members criticized Lauterbach for allegedly promoting drug use, with one Christian Democrat legislator calling the notion “the most stupid thing I’ve ever heard.”

Lauterbach countered by stating that ignoring the issue would be detrimental. He pointed out the rising cannabis use among young people and the increased potency and impurity of street drugs, posing greater risks. An estimated 4.5 million Germans use cannabis.

With this law, Germany becomes the ninth country to legalize recreational cannabis use, joining select regions in the United States and Australia. 

While many countries allow cannabis for medical purposes, it remains illegal for minors and prohibited near schools and playgrounds.

Some lawmakers questioned the law’s efficacy in curbing illicit drug trade, suggesting that individuals who prefer not to grow or join clubs may still opt to purchase cannabis illegally.
