Hello friends of CannaVigilance,
We went to Australia and got the t-shirt but they wouldn’t let us bring back the kangaroo. Our first trip to down under was a great adventure with a lot of new friends and opportunities presenting themselves. We planted our flag and hope this trip will be the first of many. Other good news of the week is that the Germans have finally made up their mind. Let’s see what else happened this week.

A vigilant eye on cannabis news
- Germany‘s cabinet has approved the new cannabis legislation. The essence of the new law is that cannabis will be removed from the Narcotics Acts and possession up to 25 grams will be legal. Now it needs to pass the parliament and the German “Bundesrat”.
- The debate in Ireland rages on. A large portion of the against debate is being driven by doctors, especially psychiatrists.
- As the Czech government prepares to unveil its proposals for an adult-use cannabis market it faces one major remaining obstacle. The obstacle is the 1995 Schengen Agreement which enshrined into law an obligation to permit free movement across the 27 member states.
- Farmers have planted the first legal cannabis crop in Morocco. There is still strong competition from drug barons, who are increasing prices for hashish resin to secure their access to farmers’ harvests by making the legal path less profitable for them.
- Resistance in Uganda to the possibility of legalisation is increasing. It is felt that consumption contributes greatly to mental health cases and poses social and economic pressures to government and families.
- The head of Malta’s cannabis regulatory body has confirmed that the country’s first two cannabis associations have been granted licenses, ‘in-principle’. In June it was revealed that 26 groups had now applied for licenses to launch a cannabis association.
