    Germany Passes Law Legalizing Personal Use of Cannabis

    In a significant move, German lawmakers have approved a bill legalizing personal cannabis use, paving the way for regulated consumption starting April 1.

    Introduced by Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s administration, the legislation faced delays but ultimately prevailed despite conservative opposition.

    The law aims to curb the illicit cannabis market and protect adolescent health, according to Health Minister Karl Lauterbach.

    Under the new rules, adults can possess up to 25 grams (0.88 ounces) of cannabis publicly and grow three plants for personal use. Nonprofit cannabis clubs for cultivation, limited to 500 members, will also be allowed from July 1.

    Germany joins countries like Canada and Uruguay in legalizing cannabis, aiming to reduce the black market and drug-related crime.

    Approval from the Bundesrat, the upper house, is not required for the law’s enactment, the health ministry confirms.

    This decision marks a shift in Germany’s drug policy toward regulation rather than strict prohibition, with implications for future drug regulation in the country.
