On November 21st, 2023, Germany hosted the 2nd International Forum for Sustainable Cannabis Regulation (IFSCR). Representatives from about 10 countries attended, including the US, Canada, Colombia, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Germany. The forum was aimed at creating an international policy framework for cannabis and discussing national initiatives in this field.
There was a noticeable absence of Polish representatives at the meeting. This situation may reflect Poland’s more conservative approach to the legalization of cannabis, which differs from trends observed in other European countries.
Poland’s non-participation in such an international forum may also be perceived as a missed opportunity to exchange experience and knowledge on cannabis regulation and policy.
Burkhard Blienert, Germany’s Commissioner for Addiction and Drugs, who chaired the forum, said: “The old answers in marijuana policy are no longer effective. […] Instead of ineffective prohibitions, in Germany we will focus on consistent regulation, prevention, youth, and health protection.”

A global perspective on cannabis legalization
The forum was an opportunity to discuss different approaches to legalizing cannabis. Canada and Malta, which have already legalized cannabis, shared their experiences.
In a global context, it was also important to highlight the situation in countries such as Mexico and Colombia, where discussions about ending prohibition are ongoing.
Germany, hosting the forum, presented its plans for legalizing marijuana. Health Minister Karl Lauterbach has proposed a law that would allow adults to legally possess cannabis and grow up to three plants for personal use, and to create cannabis clubs that could distribute marijuana to their members.
The International Forum for Sustainable Cannabis Regulation in Germany was an important step towards a global discussion on cannabis policy.
Poland’s absence from this forum sheds light on the differences in approaches to drug policy between Poland and other European countries, which could affect future relations and cooperation in this area.
