Germany will legalise CANNABIS, country’s new coalition leaders announce as Angela Merkel’s 16-year reign ends

Die britische Daily Mail berichtet über die mögliche Legalisierung in Deutschland und die Veränderung der öffentlichen Meinung zum Thema Cannabis anhand er DHV- Umfragen.

In recent years, public opinion in Germany has shifted towards the legalisation of cannabis, despite Angela Merkel’s Government being more opposed to the idea than the coalition partners. A recent survey, conducted in October by German Hemp Association, found that 49 per cent of respondents were in favour of legalising cannabis for recreational use. This was compared with just 46 per cent of German residents who were opposed to the move, which could see cannabis sold in specialty venues, similar to those found in the US and Canada. The findings marked the first time since 2014 that more German residents were in favour of legalising cannabis in the annual poll.
