SUB-Theme Culture

Cannabis model city Cottbus.
We are so free.

Decades of cannabis prohibition have not led to the desired results.

It has not succeeded in curbing the black market or minimizing the risks for users, especially children and adolescents. Against this background, the Cannabis Act is a first step towards strengthening not only health protection, but also the protection of children and young people. The removal of cannabis from the Narcotics Act forms the basis for the establishment of quality standards, traceable production and distribution as well as education and prevention. In the long term, only this will enable an active fight against the illegal market.

The government’s proposal regulates the first pillar of the planned two-pillar model of cannabis liberalization and is intended to allow the private and communal cultivation of cannabis in associations founded for this purpose, the so-called “Cannabis Social Clubs”.

With the “2nd pillar”, commercial distribution to the general public will also be tested in selected model cities and the impact of these commercial cannabis supply chains on health and youth protection as well as the black market will be scientifically monitored, examined and evaluated

The pilot project represents an opportunity for the city of Cottbus to be a pioneer and actively shape the cannabis policy of the future. SUB’s proposal would be to restrict the sale of cannabis in the licensed model stores to adult residents of the model city of Cottbus. This would prevent the risk of “cannabis tourism”.

A permanent suppression of the black market is only possible with stakeholders from the economy.
