Munich: State government wants to prevent cannabis legalization

The Bavarian state government has sharply attacked the new plans for the partial legalization of cannabis products. Several ministers polemicized against the federal government’s plan on Twitter – one allegation in particular weighs heavily.

Prime Minister Markus Söder (CSU) called the project a “wrong way” on Twitter. Health Minister Klaus Holetschek (CSU) said: “The traffic light coalition is now trying desperately to find loopholes for their ideological legalization project with legal dodges.” Health risks are downplayed.

More youth protection through legalization? For Bavaria unthinkable

Holetschek described the argument that legalization would lead to more youth protection as a “bad joke”. Economics Minister Hubert Aiwanger (Free Voters) wrote sarcastically on Twitter: “Finally train station dealers can pack larger packages for young people and the police can stay at home.”

The plans of the federal government envisage that in Germany in future the possession of a maximum of 25 grams of cannabis and the cultivation of a maximum of three plants should be exempt from punishment. In addition, the federal government wants to enable the cultivation and sale of the drug in special associations. The originally planned free sale of cannabis for adults in specialist shops is only to be tested in a second step and initially in model regions with scientific support.

CSU minister: Federal government tries to circumvent international law

Holetschek criticized the plans: “These ‘scientific’ model projects are aimed at establishing a state distribution system for cannabis – and thus at a practice that is clearly prohibited under international law. They are an attempt to circumvent these requirements of international law. These model projects are also not compatible with European law.” Bavaria will analyze exactly how cannabis legalization in Bavaria can be prevented. (mp/dpa)
