Berlin. Federal Health Minister Karl Lauterbach wants to secure the plans for a controlled legalization of cannabis with an expert opinion. Confidential talks with the EU Commission show that “very good arguments” are needed to convince them of the chosen path, said the SPD politician on Tuesday in Berlin.
In addition to the preparation of the law, a scientific opinion should therefore be commissioned. The achievability of the goals of pushing back the black market and at the same time not expanding consumption overall and achieving better child and youth protection should be made clear.
