It’s an announcement that will make a lot of noise: the coalition that will govern Germany announces this Wednesday that it wants to legalize the consumption of cannabis in the country.

Among them is the legalization of cannabis. The sale would be authorized in approved stores, and reserved for adults.

The coalition contract specifies that “this will make it possible to control quality, prevent the transmission of contaminated substances and guarantee the protection of young people”. The parties that will govern then say they want to assess the impact of this law four years after its entry into force.

The new coalition also wants to develop drug-checking operations, intended to verify that drugs are not mixed with other substances. Germany had already given the green light in 2017 to cannabis for therapeutic use.

In the meantime, the coalition must see the light of day concretely by early December. The future chancellor, the SPD Olaf Scholz, 63, will then be invested by the deputies of the Bundestag.

The coalition will include three parties: the SPD, the Greens, and the Liberals of the FDP. The Greens are already certain of winning the foreign ministry, and a big climate ministry. The FDP will have the finance portfolio.
