Traffic light coalition legalizes cannabis for adults – Do they understand weed?
They pulled it off: After decades of prohibition, the future federal government wants to allow the sale of cannabis to adults – strictly controlled in licensed stores. But crucial questions are still unanswered. By Sebastian Schneider
"Dare more progress" reads the paper, which could also make stoners happy. Green is their hope, fragrant and sticky. In the coalition agreement presented by the designated federal government of SPD, Greens and FDP in Berlin’s Westhafen on Tuesday, it devotes two short paragraphs to drug policy. But these have it in itself. "We are introducing the controlled distribution of cannabis to adults for consumption purposes in licensed stores. This will control quality, prevent the transfer of contaminated substances and ensure the protection of minors," it says on page 88. After four years, the law should be reviewed for societal impact, he said.
Proponents of legalization call the previous prohibition policy a failure, opponents warn of the health hazards of the drug. Smoking pot is already exempt from punishment, but the trade, purchase and possession of cannabis is illegal, although in Berlin up to 15 grams can be tolerated as personal use. Despite the ban, surveys by the German Federal Center for Health Education show that more than a quarter of Germans between the ages of 15 and 64 have smoked pot at least once, and among 18- to 25-year-olds, nearly half have done so.
What has been argued about for decades with serious arguments from both sides could soon be obsolete: cannabis will be legalized for adults. Doesn’t sound particularly complicated at first, but on closer inspection it raises plenty of questions. For example: Where will all the grass come from now?
Still prefers to import cannabis if allowed: Philip Schetter, CEO of Berlin-based startup Cantourage (Source: Press). | Image: Press
Estimated demand: 400 tons per year
Medical cannabis has already been approved for sale on prescription in pharmacies since 2017 because it has been proven to relieve pain, inhibit inflammation, and calm down. So far, it’s a manageable market, mainly because prescribing these prescriptions is handled with varying degrees of strictness. Only three companies are allowed to grow THC-containing medical cannabis in Germany, in completely sealed-off, camera-monitored production halls. The permitted quantity: 2.6 tons per year. Almost ten times as much is already consumed in Germany for medical reasons.
The three suppliers claim that they can expand their capacities at any time. But that would certainly not be enough. The legalization of cannabis as a stimulant, estimate the German Hemp Association and several entrepreneurs in an interview with rbb|24, would create a demand of up to 400 tons per year. A gigantic business. "In Germany, the cultivation of cannabis is enormously energy-intensive because of the unfavorable climatic conditions. It does not take place in greenhouses, but in closed halls with very strong lamps. If Germany wants to achieve its climate goals, I think the strategy of purely local cultivation is questionable," says Philip Schetter, CEO of the Berlin start-up Cantourage.
Debate on cannabis legalization "It’s no magic trick to get your hands on weed in Berlin"
Throughout Germany, the legalization of cannabis is being discussed. What a young stoner from Berlin thinks about it, what influence the consumption has on his life and why he doesn’t want Berlin to become the next Amsterdam, he tells in the interview.
With the import Germany would violate international agreements
He also makes the comments because his company makes its money exclusively from imported medical cannabis, from countries such as Jamaica, Portugal, South Africa and Uruguay. There is no problem with importing medical cannabis; but if you import cannabis as a stimulant, that’s a whole other thing.
Because Germany has signed the so-called Drug Convention of the United Nations. Since 1961, the treaty has prohibited the import and sale of cannabis as a stimulant, and has specifically designated the hemp product as a drug. If the traffic light coalition does not want to violate the UN convention, it should actually only allow cultivation in its own country. "If one country violates the treaty, other countries would no longer be able to supply the country with cannabis for medical purposes. Thus, Germany would have to build capacity very quickly to meet the demand for patients but also a recreational market", says Schetter.
In an interview with rbb|24, other providers do not consider this an insurmountable task. If the state took cannabis out of the narcotics law, it could facilitate cultivation and provide land for it, for example. Farmers could then also profit from the business with cannabis plants, because the conditions for them would not be too strict.
What other countries have experienced
Canada and Uruguay have already fully legalized cannabis, as have 21 U.S. states, including California. There, since 2018, adult customers can buy cannabis in licensed specialty stores, called dispensaries. Cannabis is sold there as a lifestyle product.
The American think tank "Cato Institute" came to the conclusion this year after evaluating several studies from the USA that the expectations of both the supporters and the opponents of legalization were exaggerated [cato.org]. The price of marijuana has plummeted in California, a black market still exists. Neither did the cannabis business bring a lot of jobs, nor did cannabis use among young people, the use of harder drugs or the crime rate increase significantly.
What is clear, however, is that the government collected significantly more taxes from cannabis. In California it is 50 million dollars per month.

Taxes for the state
The traffic light coalition said it would legalize cannabis not for financial reasons, but because of youth and health protection. A large part of the tax should be spent on prevention.
But the business with the weed would be worthwhile for the state. According to a study conducted by the University of Dusseldorf on behalf of the German Hemp Association [dice.hhu.en], it would collect about 3.3 billion euros through cannabis tax, sales tax, business tax and payroll tax, 27.000 new jobs would be created. "The market has long existed. The only thing that doesn’t exist is taxes," economist Justus Haucap, author of the study and professor of economics, told ARD-Morgenmagazin a few days ago.
Because prosecutors and police would no longer have to prosecute adult stoners, the state would save 1.4 billion euros, the study said. The police union (GdP) doubts that legalization will mean less work for the police. Dealers would still have to be controlled. "The dealers are not going to disappear here, they will continue to somehow try to finance their livelihood and then we are talking about a completely different substance", says Berlin GdP spokesman Benjamin Jendro during a rbb interview in Gorlitzer Park.
The Association of German Criminal Investigators disagrees, it supports the change in the law. "The black market will of course not disappear completely. But the hope is that organized crime will be denied a large source of income here, says Carsten Milius, co-chairman of the Berlin BdK. The way things are going at the moment, it amounts to a gigantic waste of taxpayers’ money and police resources. The number of recorded offenses has increased over the past decade from 130.000 to 220.000 increased. All this keeps the judiciary busy.
Pharmacy, Spati, coffee shop?
Apart from that, the main question is where the cannabis can be sold at all. Only in pharmacies, or in the Spati around the corner, at the supermarket checkout or in their own coffee shops? Online trade is taboo because it cannot be effectively controlled. Start-up boss Schetter argues for sales in pharmacies, which are owner-operated full-range stores and therefore have little pressure to sell cannabis as a stimulant. In addition, they could provide the necessary advice.
Berlin pharmacist Melanie Dolfen estimates that the cost of this advice and the testing of the goods is high. Even with the sale of medical cannabis, the margin is relatively narrow due to these requirements; from their point of view, the sale of legalized cannabis makes little sense from a profit motive. Instead, in an interview with rbb|24, it demands that sales outlets of medical cannabis and cannabis as a stimulant be strictly separated.
But it is conceivable that pharmacies could operate such stores. "People from the party scene would certainly be the target group there, who say they want cannabis in reasonable, safe quality. They would also put up the money to pay for this quality. Drying up the black market completely is impossible, but we would be attractive because we don’t put contaminated stuff on the market", says Dolfen, who runs two pharmacies in Mitte and Friedrichshain. For them, no contaminated stuff also means: strictly limiting the THC content in legal cannabis.

Danger to health from synthetic cannabinoids
Because the THC content in confiscated cannabis, which is responsible for the intoxicating effect, has been rising for years, also fueled by the increase in synthetic cannabinoids. According to British researchers, it doubled in Europe between 2006 and 2016. With the rising THC content, however, the health risk is also increasing. The problem on the previously illegal market: the cannabis is often contaminated, strewn with substances such as glass, sand, shoe polish or even lead. Even experienced consumers can’t spot it right away.
Michael Frommhold, co-managing director of Berlin’s emergency service for those at risk of and addicted to addictive substances, tells rbb that cannabis use has risen significantly in recent years anyway. Legalization is an opportunity, to better protect these consumers. About the effects and the risks of the drug must be explained honestly and neutrally. Nor can it be said that cannabis is less dangerous across the board than alcohol, for example.
As early as 2016, the Berlin Senate wanted to start a model trial. Study participants should be able to buy controlled-release cannabis in dispensaries. The goal: less danger from stretched substance. The federal government refused, Berlin sues against it.
"Being competition to the black market at the hotspots": Catherina Pieroth (Greens), health policy spokeswoman of the parliamentary group (Source: dpa). | Image: dpa/Bernd von Jutrczenka
"A fairy tale that cannabis is only offered in the Gorli today"
Today, Berlin Green Party politician Catherina Pieroth considers a long-term sale only in pharmacies to be not very purposeful. "When it comes to self-determined consumption, we can no longer avoid making consumption in licensed sales outlets possible – stores like Spatis are also conceivable for this, if they meet the conditions. It is also crucial to distribute such outlets well across the city", says the health policy spokeswoman of the parliamentary group in the House of Representatives. It is a fairy tale that cannabis is only offered illegally in Gorlitzer Park or Hasenheide, it is available in many places in Berlin. "Exactly at the hotspots we want to bring in transparency and be competition", she tells rbb|24.
Finn Hansel, founder of Berlin-based start-up Sanity Group, which sells medical cannabis, has similar views. "I assume that in the end, as in California, companies or individuals will be allowed to apply for licenses, which can then build businesses. There will be requirements for these, such as a safe, prohibition of access for under-18s, some training of professionals in the store so they can provide advice", says Hansel. His start-up could imagine the operation of such licensing business. The German Tobacco Retailers Association has also expressed interest.
Legalization is of little help if access for customers is more complicated than going to a dealer – experience from other countries seems to confirm that. In Canada, for example, there are too few sales outlets, the distances are long and the goods are relatively expensive because of the high tax. Canadian government’s expectations not met [tagesschau.en]. "They have grown tens of tons of cannabis there in huge halls, a mass product like industrial beer, to compete on price. But by doing that, you ended up with just an okay product, just as expensive as on the black market", says Philip Schetter, who used to work for a Canadian company.

It’s all a question of price
So how expensive should the product be for legalization to make any sense at all? So far, the state cannabis agency supplies German pharmacies exclusively, at a fixed price of 4.30 euros per gram. That’s less than half the black market price – accordingly, the illegal market is more profitable for suppliers.
"We will never be able to compete with drug cartels and mafia structures on the price of legally dispensed cannabis. But the point is to bring all the information into the light. Everyone should know what’s in it – like a bottle of beer, for example. This health protection should be worth something to us", says Green Party politician Pieroth.
Depending on the city and quality, one gram costs the customer about ten euros. In order to make this offer unattractive, legally sold cannabis should not be significantly more expensive, despite tax and all corresponding costs for quality and drug prevention. Several offerers are skeptical in the discussion with rbb|24 whether this price would be to be held, want themselves with it however not by name to be quoted. In order for all parts of the value chain to be able to operate sustainably, experts assume that a net price of five to six euros per gram is necessary. Otherwise, there is a risk of a price war, which would have a negative impact on quality.
"In the end, you have a great model project, everything about the product super controlled, but it costs 30 euros and nobody buys it. Politicians must clarify this area of tension in the coming months", objects Finn Hansel.
In the end, you have a great model project, everything about the product is super controlled, but it costs 30 euros and no one buys it."
Negative example: the Netherlands
According to experts, it is also crucial to keep an eye on the entire value chain. It is worth taking a look at the neighboring country: In the Netherlands, sales in coffee shops are legal, but the cultivation of larger quantities and purchasing are not regulated by law. As long as stores don’t store more than a pound of cannabis, they have no further questions to worry about. The result: organized gangs have divided the gigantic market among themselves and use the proceeds to finance other, illegal businesses – not least the trade in harder drugs.
Organized crime violence has escalated in recent years, with the open-street murder of reporter Peter de Vries seen by critics of Dutch drug policy as the latest evidence that the country has now become a "narco-state". Prosecutors, judges, journalists are under police protection. The Dutch way of looking the other way seems to have clearly failed.
Berlin auf Droge | Psychiatrist Betzler on drug checking "Definitely makes sense from a medical point of view"
Berlin clubbers to be able to have their drugs checked before partying starting next year. Felix Betzler does research on party drugs at the Charite and says quite clearly: drug checking is a very good way to reach the users.
Model project in Switzerland
But there are also more promising examples among Germany’s neighbors: in Switzerland, a scientifically monitored model trial lasting several years is scheduled to start in 2022 in major cities such as Zurich, Bern, Geneva and Basel. Adults can then buy cannabis in pharmacies as a stimulant without prescription, oriented to the black market price.
Maximum 5.000 participants are allowed per trial location. The purchase quantity is limited per sale and month. Only Swiss hemp with a THC content of no more than 20 percent may be sold – imports are prohibited. The German Pharmacists Association is in favor of such a model. The citizen of Berlin health politician Pieroth would be likewise in agreement according to their words with such a test run in German cities "very much."
Meanwhile, the Netherlands also has such model projects: Cultivation and trafficking on site, complete control, thus freeing up judicial capacities to concentrate on the prosecution of harder drugs.
The German traffic light coalition expressly wants to avoid the mistakes of the neighboring country. This will only work if it regulates the business from cultivation to the end customer. To this end, it must now swiftly bring about a draft law. When white smoke will start to rise and stoners will be able to stroll carefree to the coffee shop around the corner is still completely unclear.

Meat production IS significantly more harmful to the environment than cannabis production (water consumption, CO2 emissions, animal cruelty and and and. ).
Apart from the fact that you can u. a. you don’t seem to have noticed that the economic party FDP has been pleading for a release of cannabis for years – your image of full of pot Green politicians and their supporters, who are BIDDING the good citizen his (cheap) schnitzel?), whose mass production, by the way, is very energy-consuming and environmentally destructive, thus corresponding to a rather simple-minded view of the object, Kevin from Hellersdorf.
Cannabis production is very energy-intensive and therefore not very environmentally friendly. But it doesn’t seem to be so important for the Greens, as long as they themselves and their supporters get off on it. To compensate for this, you can spoil the schnitzel of the evil meat eaters.
For the fact that you have allegedly so much idea, you express yourself richly unreflective and do unfortunately also completely without factual arguments.
"We do not set ourselves the [sic!I don’t support drugs and I don’t want to smell."
You run a pub where alcohol is served and smoking is allowed, but you supposedly don’t support drugs.
Find the mistake.
I confirm fully and completely..
Within 4 years I have successfully treated and cured my chronic pain disorder, borderline with combined personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders and depression with cannabis. Today I feel really good. I also feel like participating in working life again..Thanks to cannabis.. The chemical club has not helped me at all much more I was made dependent and also badly advised or not informed at all about the dangerous side effects of medications.
I am pleased in any case. The whole thing is already a small revolution and I think that in the elections surely one or the other vote went to yellow or green only because of that. I hope a good middle way between free distribution and abuse prevention will be found. But the most beautiful thing is that the days of the experts are numbered who have no idea about smoking pot and still think to patronize everyone else in forums with senseless arguments.
That one still pulls oneself up at health endangerments is hardly comprehensible in view of the multiplicity at prescriptions and pharmacy products. It’s like opiates: In the public a deterrent image is created, while in the pharmaceutical industry the hands are rubbed. The citizens have already been deprived of the most important and best painkiller of nature. This is now turned around with hemp. And suddenly, recreational use is making a lot of people healthy who didn’t expect it at all. Others remain then on their expensive chemistry sit. Well what.
Dear Rebecca. You are absolutely right. Just for your information. By the way, my first drug was speed. At that time still free to buy i.d.Pharmacy. And I only started smoking in connection with speed when I was 18 years old.
"We normal cigarettes, cigars pipes smokers were already treated like the last dirt."
Nonsense! Smokers have treated their fellow human beings "like dirt" for decades, by recklessly polluting the air they breathe.
Wrong world, if humans are treated unfairly as "like the last dirt" just because you are no longer allowed to pollute the air of your fellow human beings with stinking and unhealthy tobacco smoke!
"In my little smokers pub stoners have to stay outside. We don’t expose ourselves to the smell and we don’t support drugs either."
Actively smoking but not supporting drugs? How should that go as a drug user? Tobacco is a drug. Tobacco is addictive and sick! Who smokes supports drugs and also the drug industry of the (legal) tobacco cultivation and the (legal) tobacco processing.
"Not too long ago smoking was banned (in restaurants bars and such) and now smoking pot is becoming socially acceptable. What is wrong there anymore?"
Smoking pot will not be "socially acceptable" anymore than smoking and be banned in restaurants and bars as well. Where is the problem?
"I’m sure the state just sees a profitable source of revenue there."
Can you please explain your "security"? also prove with verifiable facts! Or is this just a malicious insinuation without any factual basis.
"Read and check "our" Politicians actually relevant contracts and agreements (see UN treaties) before they bring any laws on the way?"
What is this question now, when there is no law "on the way" yet? has been brought? The legal examination still takes place after all. There is no time at all in coalition negotiations for detailed legal reviews. Or should the coalition agreement be completed only after the legal examination in a year and should we have until then no new government?
In the coalition agreement only the political will is documented. The small legal work incl. Examination of the legal feasibility follows then in the next 4 years.
That people with 50 plus should not know what effect cannabis can have, is probably a bad joke , what please have then" Us"! baby boomers smoked at the parties, or tried it out?! Unbelievable how little the hippsters know from the 70 ern and 80 ern in Berlin.
We 50 plus oldies probably know better what this law change means for very young people than you do yourselves. but enjoy your joints from the government program to the fullest, just please not behind the wheel or on the e scooter..
Thanks for your interesting post, but my comment was directed to Marcel, I hadn’t been looking at" Reply" typed.
"In my little smokers pub potheads have to stay outside. We [. ] do not support drugs either."
In a SMOKING CLUB, where cigarettes, cigars (nicotine) and alcohol are consumed, you do not support drugs. I hope you see the internal contradiction
Seriously, nicotine and alcohol are more addictive than cannabis according to various studies, and long-term physical damage (lung, liver, various forms of cancer. ) are more pronounced.
