BERLIN, GERMANY – Germany is going to the European Commission (EU) to present their paper with their plan to legalize recreational marijuana.
The EU needs to approve the plan outlined in the paper in order for Germany to draft the law, according to Reuters.
In addition to legalizing recreational marijuana, Germany’s plan includes several other components. These include allowing private self-cultivation, terminating cases related to marijuana that are no longer illegal, introducing a special consumption tax, and developing cannabis-related education.
If legalized in Germany, the recreational cannabis market could bring in 27,000 new jobs to the country. Germany could also see an increase in annual tax revenue and costs savings of 4.7 billion euros.
