To find out, Zurich, Berne, Geneva and Basel have been planning pilot trials for some time in which cannabis is to be given to a large group of test persons for consumption purposes. However, a concrete project in Bern was stopped by the Federal Office of Public Health last November. Experimental pilot projects could not be approved with the current legal basis. After various attempts by the Federal Assembly, the Confederation decided to create the possibility for experiments. A new article in the Narcotics Law is intended to enable pilot trials for a maximum of five years and only for scientific purposes.
