With the Social Democratic Party (SPD)’s new position, a majority of the members of the German parliament represent a political party in favor of some type of recreational marijuana reform. It’s also the first time that one of Germany’s major parties and part of the government coalition officially favors reform. The move is seen as a positive because it represents a step forward. But a long and uncertain path remains before any material adult-use cannabis reform takes place in Germany.
