    German Leftists Suggest Legal Cannabis Clubs

    Germany’s socialist Left party is calling an expert hearing on “legalizing cannabis through the introduction of cannabis clubs” in the German parliament on Wednesday. The idea has met widespread rejection.

    The Left party’s proposal is to allow Germans to open exclusive cannabis clubs, where members will be able to grow marijuana plants. They also recommend that consumers be allowed to own 30 grams of the drug for personal consumption – double the current limit.

    The proposal was put together by Frank Tempel, former director of an anti-drug group that worked with police in the eastern German state of Thuringia.

    Tempel, who is now the Left party’s advisor on drug policy, believes there needs to be a sea-change in the state’s attitude to drugs. “A cannabis ban is the legal model that has the least acceptance,” he said.

    He estimates that between 3.5 and 4 million Germans consume cannabis, and that the ban has no influence on the decision to take the drug. The German Cannabis Association (DHV) says there are around 100,000 cannabis-related criminal cases every year.

    In my opinion legalising cannabis in Germany and throughout europe would be a good idea. People already smoke it in fairly large numbers anyway.

    I can't see that many people deciding to start taking it just because it was legal.

    As it stands, revenue for the the drug just goes into the pockets of criminal gangs, which only makes them stronger and more active.

    It should be legalised and taxed like cigarettes.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    What a shame. Someone who is supposed to fight against drugs proposes to legalize them. It's disgusting liberal hippy attitude.

    I am against legalisation, because people are sheep. Look at alcohol and cigarettes - both are legal, and people drink and smoke themselves to death. If you make cannabis legal, Germany will become a nation of stoned idiots. Even worse than today. So: NO!

    Regardless of one's views on cannabis in its own right, these kind of initiatives are usually stepping stones towards something more sinister!

    Now, let me think, what could the longer-term objectives of the Left Party possibly be ... ?

    Indeed, in some people it can actually lead to psychosis or schizophrenia. Something that is often ignored by those who say there are hardly any health risks involved with smoking marijuana.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    The agenda is to bring and encourage more liberal decadence. One day it's cannabis clubs, next will be ecstasy clubs or prescription clinics for heroin junkies. As if alcohol and smoking don't pollute our youth and population enough.

    It's a joke to consider the Left Party extremists or authoritarian. The attitude to encourage it because everyone is doing it anyway is a defeatist and sick one.

    And by the way I'm getting sick of this tolerant stance towards drugs from some Skadi members. This is supposed to be a nationalist and folkish site promoting the interests of our people which include health, not a freedom for all to get a high and wasted.

    Alcohol was illegal all over the world in the 1920-1930's, but people still drank a lot. I don't think the problem will disappear just because it's illegal. I think our values on a basic level has to be changed, then we wouldn't even need to make it illegal or legalize it.

    I think perhaps medical marijuana is good for cancer patients and possibly for other sick people.
