Germany has legalized recreational cannabis for adults aged 18 and older. People will be able to have small amounts of cannabis for personal use, as well as the option to grow a small number of plants. It will also be regulated by requiring people using cannabis to be a certain distance from public zones and schools at certain times of the day.Germany, despite being relatively unknown, was one of the first places in Northern Europe to mention cannabis in the Middle Ages, as it was discussed in the “Physica” medical text.We are very interested in how Germany will handle cannabis and how the legalization of one of the wealthiest European nations will affect the attitudes of other nations.
