In yesterday’s article, we explored Malta’s cannabis regulatory framework, and what is unique about it. Today, we will travel upward through the EU and dive into Germany and the Netherlands. The latter has historically been renowned for its acceptance of cannabis. Yet, Dutch regulations can be quite counterintuitive and even contradicting: long story short, cannabis can be sold, but cannot be grown. To reduce the impact on public security, safety, and health, the Dutch government has set up an experiment for a controlled cannabis supply chain. On the other hand, there’s Germany. It is one of the most important countries in the EU, both in terms of sheer size and economic power. It goes without saying that any development related to adult use happening on German soil is bound to influence general EU policy. To what degree though is yet to be seen.
