  16. French weed users register 'cannabis clubs'

    25 March 2013
    Other news

    Cannabis users across France took a high-risk step by registering 'Cannabis social clubs' with local authorities as official non-profit organizations. The stunt is a bid to win public backing but it could land them up to 30 years in jail. In registering their social clubs with local authorities, those behind the stunt hope to illustrate what they see as disproportionate and unfair laws against cannabis use, and force a change in legislation. "We want to remove the sword of Damocles from over our heads, and demand recognition from the public authorities," said Farid Ghehioueche, from the group 'Cannabis sans frontières' (Cannabis without borders).

    The Ontario Superior Court in Canada declared the rules that govern medical marijuana access and the prohibitions laid out in sections 4 and 7 of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act “constitutionally invalid and of no force and effect,” effectively paving the way for legalization. If the government does not respond within 90 days with a successful delay or re-regulation of marijuana, the drug will be legal to possess and produce in Ontario, where the decision is binding.

    When Washington state voters legalized the recreational use of marijuana on Nov. 6, Seattle police knew they'd be getting a lot of questions. And while many details surrounding the state's Dec. 6 decriminalization of pot remain, the department didn't shy away from answering what questions it could about Initiative 502, posting a funny, question-and-answer blog that has become a big web hit - having been viewed more than 120,000 times and shared more than 15,000 times on Facebook since it was posted Friday. The result was "Marijwhatnow? A Guide to Legal Marijuana Use In Seattle."

  20. France catches up with khat users

    According to figures released by the French Customs, seizures of khat are soaring, up from 1.8 tonnes in 2011 to 4.5 tonnes in 2012, putting it on a par with cocaine (4.6 tonnes) but still far behind cannabis (24 tonnes). The rising interception rate does not mean consumption in France is increasing. Half of last month's haul was found in the freight zone of Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. "France is a transit country," says Sébastien Tiran, general-secretary at the CDG Customs headquarters. The Netherlands ban has driven prices in Paris sharply upwards.
