I don't agree with this new permissive law. Just because something harmful is hard to crack down on, doesn't mean it should be legalised which it partially has been, from today, 01.04.24. You'd think this is an April Fools', but it isn't.

Cannabis causes mental illness, anti social behaviour and crime, so legalising it is not the right way to deal with it.

German authorities were racing to release hundreds of cannabis convicts on Sunday ahead of the partial legalisation of the drug.

From April 1, citizens will be allowed to possess up to 25 grams of the drug in their homes as well as grow three cannabis plants.

At midnight, Germans gathered to celebrate the law change by smoking marijuana in public, including at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
