High Hurdles Face Germany’s Cannabis Legalization Plans

Der Spiegel befasst sich mit den möglichen Hürden einer Legalisierung und wirft auch einen Blick auf die verschiedenen deutschen Cannabis-Lobbyisten. 

For a long time, it was mainly activists driving the lobbying. The German Cannabis Association had primarily dedicated itself to consumers, small businesses and home growers of all kinds. Two years ago, the Cannabis Business Industry Association spun off, and it now represents 90 companies. The association is asked for advice from everyone, from farmers in Germany to sales representatives from Colombia and even German retail chains.
