Little will change around illegal cannabis cultivation, even if the government changes the current tolerance policy, according to officials from the Ministries of Public Health and Security and Justice. The Dutch government is considering three scenarios: regulating both cannabis sales and cultivation, extending the tolerance policy to include growers, or a total ban on both growing and selling weed. In February a majority in the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of Dutch parliament, voted for regulated cannabis cultivation. When and if a change of law will be implemented is still unclear.
