The federal government plans to legalize cannabis on April 1st . The current plan seems more like an April Fool’s joke than a serious plan to actually legalize cannabis. Not only was the planned legalization postponed several times, but changes were also made again and again that were far from any logic.
Edibles should continue to be banned, but it is not clear how this is in your own household. It will also continue to be forbidden to consume cannabis in the cannabis club where you have legally purchased cannabis. What the politicians were thinking about this remains a mystery.

As long as cannabis is not legalized, people will continue to be prosecuted
Decriminalization is not in sight. That means that cannabis users still need to keep a low profile. The risk of losing your driver’s license, your job or even your livelihood still exists. However, judges have the option not to punish non-violent cannabis crimes. Here we can hope for the common sense of our justice system. Up to 25 grams can be carried without penalty after April 1st.
Authorities in Germany should stop prosecuting people for trivial amounts. It is a waste of resources and destroys the future of young people. Nobody should ruin their future now because of a law that will come into force in a few months. Lauterbach does not adequately answer important questions about the two-pillar plan. The Bundestag is still a long time coming.
The Bundestag will meet again to discuss cannabis legalization. Whether there will be any relevant changes remains to be seen. All in all, the plan seems like a bad April Fool’s joke. It wouldn’t be surprising if Lauterbach smiled into the camera at the BPK on April 1st and said “April April”. More than two years have passed since the traffic lights began.
Even though there is a lot of debate and reporting about it, the current reality of life for cannabis users has not yet changed. Therefore, it seems reasonable to assume that the whole thing is just a bad joke by the politicians, who chose April 1st as the date for legalization. Cannabis legalization is important and right. For a rational cannabis policy – legalization as an opportunity.
