Germany marijuana legalization push revives debate over drug policy

Auch im Ausland wird die hanfpolitische Entwicklung in Deutschland genau verfolgt. Die Online-Zeitung "Washington Times" berichtet über den Vorstoß des CDU-Politikers Dr.Joachim Pfeiffer zitiert in diesem Zusammenhang auch unseren Geschäftsführer Georg Wurth:

Mr. Pfeiffer’s move sent ripples of joy through the budding marijuana industry in Germany, offering a rare crack in the conservative unity that has resisted all past efforts at legalization.

“The Christian Democratic Union has been a cement wall in the way of legislation,” said Georg Wurth, head of the German Hemp Association, a pro-legalization group in Berlin. “But for the first time we have a CDU politician publicly speaking out for legalization, which is a big step forward. You can assume there are others with similar opinions in the CDU.”

[...]

Still, despite Mr. Pfeiffer touting the benefits of legal marijuana to his CDU colleagues, Mr. Wurth wasn’t expecting Ms. Merkel to allow the legislation to pass. “It will be a long time before the party has a majority in favor of legalization,” he said.
