Germany Gives Controversial Green Light To Cannabis

Germany on Monday took a defiant step to legalize recreational cannabis, despite fierce objections from opposition politicians and medical associations.
This move has made Germany the biggest EU country with some of the most liberal cannabis laws in Europe, alongside Malta and Luxembourg, which legalised recreational use in 2021 and 2023, respectively.
According to the first step in the much debated new law, adults over 18 are now allowed to carry 25 grams of dried cannabis and cultivate up to three marijuana plants at home.
While concurring to the new law, the German government, a three-way coalition led by Olaf Scholz’s Social Democrats, argues that legalisation will help contain the growing black market for the popular substance. This is after the government promised a widespread information campaign to raise awareness of the risks and to boost support programmes.
