The traffic light government wants to advance the legalization of cannabis possession as quickly as possible. For this, she will probably divide up her legislative project with a view to the EU.
If you hope to be able to grow and distribute cannabis legally soon, you will probably have to be patient. On the other hand, the legalization of possession and consumption of the plant announced by the federal government is to be implemented quickly, as the “Augsburger Allgemeine” (Friday) reports.
Due to problems with European law, the traffic light coalition is considering possibly implementing the plans for cannabis release in several steps, SPD right-wing politician Carmen Wegge told the newspaper: “Decriminalization must come before the end of this year.” The more far-reaching part on the legalization of cannabis cultivation and trade could therefore be separated in the legislative package.
