Switzerland Legalizing Small Scale Marijuana Cultivation Beginning January 1st


Marijuana PlantBy Steve Elliott of Toke of the Town

Citizens of Switzerland will soon be allowed to grow up to four marijuana plants each at home, according to government officials. Four people sharing a house can grow up to 16 plants, but only if each person tends to their own crop.

The further relaxation of the Alpine nation’s already liberal cannabis laws has been agreed upon by four regions in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, reports Ian Sparks at the Daily Mail.

“We have agreed these new rules to prevent drugs tourism between regions where the rules are different, and to stop them buying it on the streets,” said a spokesman for the Neuchatel region of Switzerland.

“But one person cannot start growing more than four plants just by claiming they live with other people,” the spokesman said. “In this case, these other people have to actually be cultivating the plants themselves. This means attending to the plant in such a way as to make it grow.”

“This basically means that you can grow four more plants for every housemate you have — just as long as they know how to hold a watering can,” quipped the Swiss daily newspaper Le Matin.

The rules come into effect on January 1, 2012 in the Swiss cantons of Vaud, Neuchatel, Geneva and Fribourg.

  1. very well put Paulie, It is something that the US can justify selling ant taxing
    alcohol, extremely more danger to people than weed. So if it makes sense to
    our Government enough said, people have no say

  2. Way to go, Switzerland!~-It is obvious your fine sovereign land doesn’t have to bow to the financial pressures of the U.S., the most forward-thinking bunch of sots on earth.Running at top speed, head-first backward!!~ They actually posses the unmitigated audacity to believe government should regulate non-violent, non-disruptive and generally peaceful behavior. Ludicrous.
    As a lifelong Cannaphile, I cannot count on my own country to do the right thing!!-So,…I must live vicariously threough legends of “Common Sense”
