Züri Can - Cannabis with Responsibility

IN 2022 Zurich will allow people to buy cannabis through pharmacies and clubs, in a 3.5 year research study.

The aim is to research the effects of standardized outlets and cannabis (THC) products on users. Producers as well as club owners can apply for a licence.

The Government has smarted up to the realization that different ways of regulating and controlling the use of recreational cannabis should be investigated. Other objectives include "Organic" and "Local".

Quote:
Once the legal basis is in place, the City of Zurich is launching the “Züri Can - Cannabis with Responsibility” pilot project together with the Zurich University Psychiatric Clinic. The effects of regulated cannabis use are being researched in a three-and-a-half year study. The cannabis study is intended to provide the basis for appropriate cannabis legislation at the federal level.

Re: Züri Can - Cannabis with Responsibility

I am for legalizing drugs (to a reasonable extent, of course) and allowing pharmacies to control the supply of clean and safe products, getting them out of the hands of dealers and all of the associated horrific crime that is funded through the supply chain of buying drugs illegally. Combined with long-term education campaigns on the risks of drug use I think that this would do a lot to reduce the negative impact they have.

Portugal led the way on this 20 years ago, dramatic falls in HIV rates, drug related crime and drug overdose cases. Let's face the fact the ongoing 'war' on drugs has had no meaningful benefit until now.
