Its Legal to grow cannabis in Germany

After a long political debate, on Friday, February 23, 2024, the Bundestag passed the federal government's draft law " on the controlled handling of cannabis" (20/8704 ,20/8763 ) approved. The law will allow adults to possess up to 50 grams of cannabis for their own private consumption in the future. In public spaces the maximum limit should be 25 grams. In a roll-call vote, 407 MPs voted for the law, 226 voted against and four abstained.

The Health Committee had a recommendation for a resolution (20/10426 ) and the Budget Committee submits a report in accordance with paragraph 96 of the Rules of Procedure (20/10427 ). The Health Committee decided on a few changes to the original draft in a sometimes turbulent and emotional meeting on Wednesday, February 21st.
