Re: Growing Marijuana / Weed / Cannibis in my balcony (ZH)

Take a stroll through ETH Hoenggerberg campus and you'll see a bunch of the plants growing in the mid-campus garden (right next to datura and opium producing plants).

I understand plants up to a certain level of THC is tolerated. Should you start cultivating high THC content, I understand they go after it if they know about it.

It's actually not that big of a deal. It's just paranoid expats who are scared to try, so their advice is usually worthless.

Just don't grow a plantation. And expect it to get stolen just before you harvest if it's a ground floor balcony.
I've had friends who have had it stolen from a 2nd floor balcony - the robbers had to climb up the pipes! It hadn't even budded - partie en floraison - either, what a waste

If you're in a Romand canton you can grow up to four 4 plants for personal comsumption. It's a convention between police chiefs of the cantons in question to reduce pressure on the thin blue line in policing petty crime.

Yes. This pharmacy is the only one though that has the required permit.

But the procedures for the patients to get a permit are complicated. A motion has been placed in federal parliament by Margrit Kessler (but not yet submitted to the Bundesrat) to determine potential medical use of cannabis.

Re: Growing Marijuana / Weed / Cannibis in my balcony (ZH)

In the middle picture at the left edge (in the shadowy part) there seems to be a sign, probably naming and describing the plants in that patch. If cannabis is named in the description you need to be ready for it to be industrial hemp (legal and considered as such if less than 1% THC content).

Re: Growing Marijuana / Weed / Cannibis in my balcony (ZH)

My OH's parents have some opium poppies in their front garden and these get stolen regularly, even though in the Swiss climate they are highly unlikely to produce significant amounts of opiate.

Some people are just plain stupid I guess.

But your link doesn't cover the question - what happens if you grow it?

That isn't mentioned; even if you assume it's OK, and ten grammes is the limit, what do 2 plants weigh?

In any case a 100 CHF fine would be applied, so putting them in plain view of any copper walking past on a slow day would probably be a bit dumb.
Pulling your pants down infront of any copper on a cold day is a bit dumb too. Personaly I have not met anyone who is stupid enough to contemplate such a thing.

Re: Growing Marijuana / Weed / Cannibis in my balcony (ZH)

These threads are like watching a kid watching a hollywood movie.

Just when you think some juicy info is about to appear it all goes pear shaped and we head out to left field.

According to the News Rag 20 Minuten on Friday 18 September Smoking Cannabis is or will become legal in all Cantons. See link. Can anyone verify or input anything with substance?

Yes. Also according to the same page health insurers will offer lower rates for vegetarians. What the article doesn't say is that they will implant you with a chip to ensure you don't cheat them by secretly ingesting meat. You will thus have to wash the lettice very carefully as even the tiniest bug or slug could invalidate your bonus.


The types of cannabis that will be legal will be carefully regulated and can only be sold by your local police station. You should thus go there and ask if they have any.

Yes. This means that all depressed faces will instantaneously turn into laughing faces.

Silly me. The coppers need to do their research too. A cop got bailed up doing exactly that in Sydney. He had an excuse too. Something about age being a mystery until the buttons are undone. The judge didnt believe him. Now the detective is "little people". Not a good position for a ex-detective to be in. They tend to have many enemies. My heart bleeds for him...
