Germany on track to partly legalise cannabis for personal use after heated debate

World 12:30 23.02.2024

Germany’s parliament is expected to partly legalise cannabis on Friday after a heated debate about the pros and cons of allowing easier access to the drug. Ednews reports citing The Guardian.

Under the new legislation, which will make Germany the third country in Europe to legalise the drug for personal use, cannabis would be removed from the official list of banned substances. Adults would be allowed to possess 25g of it at one time.

The health minister, Karl Lauterbach, has said he expects that the new legislation would enable the market to be reclaimed from drug dealers who supply many of the 7 million Germans estimated to regularly use cannabis. The government said many users rely on the drug for medicinal reasons and that the new law would also improve the quality of cannabis consumed by increasing numbers of young people.
