Die Linke, Germany’s socialist Left party, argues that cannabis should be legalized in Germany through the introduction of cannabis clubs. All other parties dismiss their idea.

In the exclusive cannabis clubs members would be able to grow marijuana plants. The Left party also suggests that consumers be allowed to own 30 grams of cannabis for personal use. Today each federal state has their own possession limit, ranging from 6 to 30 grams.

The right wing FDP party reject the idea, together with all other parties in the Bundestag, calling it “well-meaning intoxication socialism”.
