Lauterbach: Cannabis law passed in February
Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) is sticking to the planned legalization of cannabis despite resistance from the ranks of the traffic light coalition. “I continue to assume that the cannabis law will be passed in the Bundestag in the week from February 19th to 23rd and can then apply from April 1st. The discussions on this are going very promising,” he told “Welt am Sonntag”. SPD domestic politicians had previously expressed concerns.
