Swiss Town To Pilot Recreational Cannabis Sales
Basel-Stadt, a region in northern Switzerland, announced that they will be starting pilot trials of legal marijuana sales by September 2022.
This marks an milestone for Switzerland, a potential first step towards marijuana legalization, reports The Straits Times. “The scientific knowledge gained from this provides a basis for discussion for a future responsible cannabis policy,” said the region in a statement.
