In Germany, the purchase and possession of 20 grams of cannabis from the age of 18 should in principle be exempt from punishment. This emerges from the key points of Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (SPD) for the planned legalization of cannabis. They are currently being coordinated between the ministries involved. After that, the self-cultivation of up to two cannabis plants should also be allowed. The amount of the intoxicating substance THC in legalized cannabis should not exceed 15 percent. In order to prevent "cannabis-related brain damage", however, only products with a maximum THC content of 10 percent may be sold to young people between 18 and 21 years of age.
