Cannabis plans announced in Germany: Legal adult use expected by end of 2023

April 12, 2023 from leafie

Formal plans for Germany’s hotly anticipated cannabis legalisation have been announced today by Minister of Health Dr Karl Lauterbach and Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture Cem Özdemir.

In a press conference held on April 12, Lauterbach announced that following discussions with the EU the German government would move forward with a two-phase approach to legalising cannabis for adult use in the country.

The first phase, which Özdemir expected to come into force by the end of 2023, will allow adults across the country to grow cannabis privately or as part of non profit associations, similar to the cannabis social club model favoured by regions of Spain and soon to be adopted by Malta. Associations will be limited to a maximum 500 members, with each member being limited to purchasing 25g at a time, up to a maximum of 50 grams per month.
