A prefeita Monika Hermann do distrito de Kreuzberg , em Berlim, quer criar um centro para o plantio e consumonos moldes espanhóis.

Cannabis cafes could set up shop in Berlin

Legally buying a few grams of marijuana might soon become reality in Berlin. Kreuzberg district's new mayor, Monika Herrmann, has plans to open Germany's first cannabis coffee shop.

When Monika Herrmann took office as Berlin Kreuzberg's mayor in August, she made cannibis legalization a priority. It's a topic igniting controversy in the city's capital, especially with German federal elections set for Sept. 22. Hermann is following the political footsteps of her predecessor Franz Schulz. She sees pot legalization as a means to tackle the growing drug problem in Kreuzberg's Görlitzer Park, which has developed into one of the city's central drug-dealing hubs.

"If we want to gain control of the dealers and their products, we must manage the distribution," the Green-party politician told Agence France-Presse. The initiative should slowly eradicate the dealers' business and also prevent consumption.

That may be good news for people hoping to chill out in a coffee shop, joint in hand, like in Amsterdam. But the drug policy of the Netherlands shouldn't necessarily be a model for Berlin, Hermann said. Rather, city-run shops should hire salesmen with medical training in order to counsel customers.

This marks a significant step for those seeking drug policy reformation. "It's about getting the dealers out of business and creating a structure, in which one can buy cannabis without additives, so it's less dangerous,"Georg Wurth of Berlin's Weed Organization, "Hanf Verband,“ told DW. "We started a campaign of motivating other cities to do the same, open coffee shops or cannabis social clubs, like in Spain, in order to solve all the problems we are facing due to prohibition."

Tolerance vs. police raids

According to German legislation, selling and buying of marijuana are illegal. Consumption, however, is more of a gray area. It's up to each federal state to decide how much marijuana a person may possess without being arrested. Carrying a small amount for personal use has little to no legal repercussions. In Berlin, the limit is set at 15 grams of cannabis, whereas in Hamburg or North Rhine-Westphalia, a maximum of 6 grams is tolerated.

At the moment, however, the call to legalize marijuana is getting insufficient political support. Although the Social-Democrats (SPD), the Left Party, and the Pirate Party are calling for a less restrictive cannibis policy, the local conservatives prefer to maintain the ban. They want police to solve the problem. Berlin drug commissioner, Christine Köhler-Azara finds the idea of opening coffee shops "unrealistic," since German drug policy focuses on prevention and counseling.

Police spokesman Thomas Neuendorf is also skeptical about the efficiency of opening coffee shops. "As long as there are consumers, there will be trade," he said. On the other hand, he is convinced that increasing raids would trigger dealers to relocate to other areas in the city. By July this year, police had organized approximately 60 special raids in Görlitzer Park. Criminal charges were brought against 170 people, 90 of them allegedly in violation of drug law.

'A question of time'

Meanwhile the drug business goes on as usual in Görlitzer Park. "I haven't experienced aggressive dealers," said a female resident of Berlin Kreuzberg. "They do approach you frequently, though. I wouldn't mind coffee shops in my area."

Marijuana reform will ultimately be decided by the Federal Institute for Drugs in Bonn. For now the matter is currently being debated in the regional parliament of Berlin, and Hoffmann plans to file an application with the respective office.

Germany is not alone in the drug debate. Lately the United States has also revisted the subject of legalizing marijuana. As of August 2013, the US federal government granted states a free hand in determining drug policy.

In Uruguay a new marijuana law is also expected to be approved by the Senate this September. The government is preparing to legalize the drug and gain monopoly over its production and distribution.

One of Germany's influencing factors will be the country's approaching state and federal elections, said Georg Wurth.

"With a conservative government, there might still be problems, and it will take some more years until it happens," Wurth said. "But I'm enthusiastic at the moment, and I think we will get it done. It's just a question of time."

    • Salvee Então mano o correto é deixar os galhos crocantes, quebrar quando torce eles. E ja vi tambem gente que levou até uns 18 dias pra secar.  O que voce pode fazer é, colocar os buds dentro de um pote e coloca um higrometro (medidor de umidade) dentro do pote, fecha e observa. Se a umidade ficar entre 60 e 62% ja da pra deixar curar, se ficar muito acima disso, ai precisa de mais tempo de secagem ainda. Acho que essa vai ser a menor maneira pra voce poder ver se eles ja estão secos o sufiencietes e prontos pra cura.  NOixx
    • Levando em conta o que disse acima... Uma mudança no Código Penal, onde se tornaria possivel essa tal liberação de presos, só é POSSIVEL, mediante votação no Congresso, e para se aprovar alteração no código penal e necessário o projeto de lei ser aprovado na camara e no senado em 2 turnos e com maioria absoluta. Então voce vim aqui falar que o Lula, vai soltar presos, só mostra o quanto voce nao conhece da legislação brasileira, e se soubesse nao cairia nesse tipo de fake news, que só busca causar nas pessoas panico moral.  E outra, roubo acontece hoje, acontecia ontem e vai continuar acontecendo, com Lula, com o broxonaro, com o Ciro e com qualquer outro presidente que se eleja. e sabe Por que ? porque não se combate as causas do problema, são só medidas paliativas que criminalizam e estigmatizam pessoas pobres e pretas.  Agora po, maconheiro e bolsonarista ? a favor de militarização do pais ? a favor de um candidato que apoia a tortura ? vamo se informar melhor, buscar informação de qualidade e sair da bolha dos zap zap bolsonarista. Num governo militar a primeira vitima é voce, maocnheiro, minoria, cultivador, ou se acha que a policia vai perguntar em quem voce votou quando invadir sua casa ? abre o olho doido  
    • Deixa eu te perguntar uma coisa, qual alteração no Código Penal feita durante o governo broxonaro que mudou a forma que se determina se uma pessoa vai ficar no regime semi aberto ou no regime fechado ? Simplesmente é uma alteração que não existiu. O Código Penal segue o mesmo, sem atualizações desde 2006.
