The weed experiment is postponed again. It is unlikely that legally produced weed will only be sold in eleven municipalities in 2024. This has been announced by Minister Kuipers (Public Health).
According to Minister Kuipers, the implementation of the weed experiment is “extremely complicated”. For example, it is difficult for growers who participate to arrange a location, get the necessary permits and open a bank account.
It is also important that the supply of weed is sufficiently varied, that sufficient is produced and that the product is always of good quality. At the moment, according to Kuipers, that is not the case.
