The Swiss government has given the green light to the city of Zurich to launch an experimental program that will authorize the consumption and sale of cannabis to adults, starting this summer. The pilot project is part of Switzerland’s efforts to assess the real effects of the legalization of adult cannabis use on its population.
The project titled “Züri Can – Cannabis with Responsibility“, designed by the State of Zurich in partnership with the Zurich University Hospital, aims to investigate the impact of the regulated supply of cannabis on the consumption and health of users, monitored through the software Cannabis Dispensary System, from Cannavigia, owned by Vigia AG. O Federal Public Health Office (FOPH), the public health center of the Swiss federal government, approved the project on the 21st of March.
