A number of cities are pushing for different kinds of public "experiments" in legal distribution that would allow them to better control cannabis in their jurisdictions. Produced as part of a the "New Approaches in Harm Reduction Policies and Practices" project, this Country Report seeks to understand the drivers of German cannabis policy today, and the possibilities for its future.

    Report

    Este informe revela que los estados miembros de la Unión Europea y el Espacio Schengen han alzado cerca de 1.000 km de muros, lo equivalente a más de seis Muros de Berlín, desde los años 90, con el objetivo de frenar la migración de personas desplazadas por la fuerza a Europa. Estos muros físicos van acompañados de los aún más largos “muros marítimos”, operaciones navales patrullando el mar Mediterráneo, así como los “muros virtuales”, sistemas de control fronterizo que buscan parar a las personas que intentan entrar en Europa, incluso aquellas que están viajando por el continente, y controlar el movimiento general de la población.

    Member states of the European Union and Schengen Area have constructed almost 1000 km of walls, the equivalent of more than six times the total length of the Berlin Walls, since the nineties to prevent displaced people migrating into Europe. These physical walls are accompanied by even longer ‘maritime walls’, naval operations patrolling the Mediterranean, as well as ‘virtual walls’, border control systems that seek to stop people entering or even traveling within Europe, and control movement of population.
