Heilbronn Social Club Prepares for Cannabis Legalization in Germany

Cannabis is to be legally cultivated and distributed in social clubs in Germany. The founders of the “Cannabis Social Club Heilbronn” are already in the preparations and have concrete plans – but also criticize the framework conditions. The focus is on the topics of youth protection and high cultivation and production standards. The Heilbronn social club founders also express their concerns.



Germany is planning to legalize cannabis – both consumption and cultivation. The framework conditions for this have already been presented. However, a final decision has yet to be made. So-called “social clubs” are to make the acquisition possible. Several of these clubs have already been founded in Baden-Württemberg and Heilbronn – the Heilbronn Social Club.

As the “Heilbronner Stimme” reported, the “Cannabis Social Club Heilbronn” (CSC) is preparing for legalization – and wants to be a pioneer. Three men in their late 20s to early 30s have founded the club “TenTen” together. The cultivation is already in planning, the ideas are concrete. However, not everyone can become a member – yet 50 people are already involved, and the trend is rising.

Heilbronn Social Club already has very concrete plans

“The young men see their Heilbronn Cannabis Social Club as a kind of pioneer in the turnaround in German drug policy, which is also intended to do important educational work and serve to protect young people,” writes the “Heilbronner Stimme.” How exactly the plans of the founders for the Heilbronn Cannabis Social Club are, can be read in the article of the “Heilbronner Stimme”.

The main focus of teh Heilbronn Social Club is on the topics of youth protection and high cultivation and production standards. The Heilbronn social club founders also express their concerns to the “Heilbronner Stimme” if legalization should take place too quickly. The men are also critical of some of the planned regulations – limiting THC content for those under 21, for example, could lead to the development of a black market.

Plans for cannabis legalization in Germany – consumption is not completely harmless spoke to the addiction counseling service and reported how much Heilbronn is already smoking pot – without legalization. Those who consume the drug should also inform themselves about the risks that smoking cannabis brings. Speaking to, an addiction expert explains how dangerous cannabis is compared to alcohol consumption.

Plans for cannabis legalization in Germany

In Germany, possession of up to 25 grams of cannabis and self-cultivation of a maximum of three plants are to be exempt from punishment in the future. In addition, the federal government wants to allow the cultivation and distribution of the drug in special associations with a maximum of 500 members – the social clubs. A maximum of 25 grams of cannabis per day and a maximum of 50 grams per month may be dispensed per club member. The minimum age is 18. The clubs must appoint youth protection, addiction, and prevention officers

For example, the planned cannabis stores, in which intoxicating products can be sold freely, will not exist for the time being. This will only be tested in a second step and only in some model regions – with scientific support. (Source: German Press Agency (dpa))

Those who do not abide by certain rules will probably have to face fines and penalties in the future despite legalization, for example when driving after consuming cannabis.
