Germany Approves Legalization of Cannabis for Personal Use

The German parliament has given its approval to contentious legislation that legalizes the personal use of cannabis. The decision, passed by the lower house, the Bundestag, on Friday, marks a significant shift in drug policy in Germany.

Starting from April 1, adults in Germany will have the legal right to purchase up to 25 grams (one ounce) of cannabis per day, with a monthly cap set at 50 grams (two ounces) for recreational use. Individuals under the age of 21 will be subject to a lower monthly limit of 30 grams. Additionally, the new regulations allow users to cultivate up to three cannabis plants each for personal consumption.

The legislation could face potential delays if the upper house, representing 16 state governments, decides to intervene. While Bavaria’s conservative state government has expressed intentions to explore legal options to halt the law, it remains to be seen how much resistance the new regulations will encounter.

Championed as part of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s broader social reform program, the cannabis legalization measures received 407 votes in favor and 226 against. Originally slated to take effect at the beginning of the year, the legislation faced delays due to opposition within Scholz’s ruling coalition.
