World Wide Weed

World wide weed legalisation is gaining momentum. An increasingly sober discussion comes to more and more realistic assessments enabling options for progressive measures. Or, as the Columbian Nobel prize winner Santos said, “it makes no sense to imprison a peasant who grows marijuana, when cultivation and use are legal in eight states of the United States”.

The Zobel-Marthaler-report outlines the current situation in the USA, Uruguay, Netherlands, Spain, Canada, Belgium, and Switzerland. In „Neue Entwicklungen in der Regulierung des Cannabismarktes, Von A (Anchorage) bis Z (Zürich)“ it debates which model of regulation might be best suited in the context of cannabis legalisation. These assessments have only become more urgent with the developments in the USA. With 8 ‘legal’ US-states by now and steps towards legalisation becoming more concrete in Canada for 2017 the agenda is growing. Last not least, not stopping efforts of many German communities and cities to let prevail more sense for reality finally, or the gently kick-started national law introducing cannabis as medicine do make hope.
