The German government is preparing to legalise cannabis
The German traffic light coalition has already decided on the legalisation of cannabis. The appropriate legislative text is now being discussed.

Burk Blienert, the German drug commissioner, is planning extensive technical preparations for the upcoming regulated release of cannabis in Germany. SPD politician said that he will now begin “a thorough consultation process” with the Ministry of Health and other authorities.

Blienert stated that it was vital for the technical consultations to emphasise youth and health protection. Because, ultimately, not more, but fewer young people in Germany should smoke cannabis. According to him, overseas experiences, such as those from Canada, should also be considered.
