Germany is on the verge of legalizing cannabis nationwide. The governmental coalition of Germany includes three parties- the Social Democratic Party, the Free Democratic Party, and the Greens. Recently the party leaders of each party began meeting to discuss legalizing cannabis. The parties released a report which revealed their intention to introduce legalization legislation. Specifically, the legislation would include controlled sales at licensed shops.

Germany Hopes to Promote the Use of Safe Cannabis

In addition to the report, which was originally circulated by Der Spiegel, the coalition has talked about how they’re hoping this legislation will drive out the illegal cannabis market. With regulation, the coalition hopes to promote harm reduction from cannabis. Additionally, they plan to implement drug-checking services with testing sites to make sure substances are up to standards.

This legislation has finally gained support after initially being discussed since 2017. While police unions in Germany have been against nationwide legalization, it seems that the passage of this bill has received substantial support.  The parties will present this legislation in Germany’s upcoming legislative session. While it is uncertain whether or not they will place a tax on cannabis, the coalition has noted that it would potentially generate $1 billion in revenue yearly.

Cannabis Legalization is Becoming a Global Conversation

Germany could potentially join a small list of countries that have legalized cannabis nationally. Currently, Canada, Georgia, Mexico, South Africa, and Uruguay have legalized recreational weed. Furthermore, if Germany passes this bill, they could be one of the first European countries to achieve this.

Additionally, one of Germany’s neighbors is also passing their pro-cannabis legislation. Luxembourg will pass their nationwide cannabis legalization bill in early 2022. With Germany’s upcoming legislation session coming up, cannabis legalization seems to be inevitable. With all of this pro-cannabis progression, one thing is certain: cannabis is quickly gaining global acceptance and support.
