Germany Passes Cannabis Bill, But Buying Cannabis Is Still Hard

Germany has passed the cannabis legalization bill, but has made buying cannabis very hard. The German parliament has voted to legalize possession of cannabis which will allow people over the age of 18 to legally carry cannabis in public up to a certain amount.  In any case, they have come up with strict rules making it difficult to buy cannabis.  The new law has taken effect since April 1, 2024.

Here's what could happen once the bill has been approved:

  • Smoking cannabis in public is legal except for in public spaces like sports venues or schools.

  • People over the age of 18 can carry up to 25 grams in public. 

  • Adults over 18 can be in possession of cannabis up to 50 grams in private spaces.

  • The new law has made it illegal for cannabis consumption for people under 18.  

  • People from the age group of 18-21 can only buy up to 30 grams of cannabis.

  • People can buy cannabis from cannabis social club

  • Each club is allowed to have only 500 members. 

  • You are prohibited from using cannabis products in the club or anywhere within 200 meters of the club.  

  • Each club may not be situated within 200 meters of schools or daycare centers. 

  • Adults are allowed to grow three plants each in their residence.

  • Plans to decriminalize possession of up to 30 grams of cannabis were scrapped due to opposition from the European Union

  • Germany is the second country in the EU to legalize cannabis after Malta

The new law has met with a lot of criticism too.  Some deemed that the law to be confusing.  It can be argued that even though cannabis may be legal, legally obtaining cannabis is complicated, not to mention that since cannabis has been made legal the country should seriously put more effort in the decriminalization of cannabis possession.  While conservatives may feel that legalizing cannabis can send the wrong message to people and can easily get out of control. 

Legalization of cannabis is a big deal for people that are in need of medical cannabis whether in the form of CBD or THC.  It makes cannabis more easily available for both recreational and medicinal purposes and at the same time the legalization of cannabis also takes away the negative stigma of cannabis.
