France  - Information France >> Background: Map of France  France, officially the French Republic (République française), is a unitary semi-presidential republic in Western Europe, with several overseas regions and territories. Metropolitan France extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of three countries (Morocco, Spain) to have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. From its shape, it is often referred to in French as l’Hexagone ("The Hexagon"). It is a member of the European Union. France is the largest country in Western Europe and the third-largest in Europe as a whole. It possesses the second-largest exclusive economic zone in the world. France has been a major power with strong cultural, economic, military, and political influence in Europe and around the world. France has its main ideals expressed in the 18th-century Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, France built the second-largest colonial empire of the time, ruling large portions of first North America and India and then Northwest and Central Africa; Madagascar; Indochina and Kouang-Tchéou-Wan; and many Caribbean and Pacific Islands.

France is a developed country, possessing the world's fifth-largest and Europe's second-largest economy by nominal GDP. It is also the world's ninth-largest by GDP at purchasing power parity. France is the wealthiest nation in Europe – and the fourth-wealthiest in the world – in aggregate household wealth. French citizens enjoy a high standard of living, high public education level, and one of the world's longest life expectancies. France has been listed as the world's "best overall health care" provider by the World Health Organization. It is the most-visited country in the world, receiving 79.5 million foreign tourists annually. France has the world's fifth-largest nominal military budget, as well as (in terms of personnel) the largest military in the EU, the third-largest deployable force in NATO, and the 26th-largest military in the world. France also possesses the third-largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world – with around 300 active warheads as of 25 May 2010 – and the world's second-largest diplomatic corps (behind the United States). France is a founding member of the United Nations, one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, and a member of the Francophonie, the G8, G20, NATO, OECD, WTO, and the Latin Union. It is also a founding and leading member state of the European Union and the largest EU state by area. In 2013, France was listed 20th on the Human Development Index and, in 2010, 24th on the Corruption Perceptions Index.

France has a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

France - status France | ( Legal for medical use ) per Ann Törnkvist (10 June 2013). The Local. Retrieved 12 June 2013. > French law on pot-based medicine takes effect | A new French law permitting cannabis derivatives to be used in the making of medicinal products, has gone into effect, it was reported on Monday. It remains to be seen, however, what form such products might take. >>   Learn more >> So, as of 8 June 2013, cannabis derivatives can be used in France for the manufacture of medicinal products. The products can only be obtained with a prescription and will only be prescribed when all other medications have failed to effectively relieve suffering. The amended legislation decriminalizes "the production, transport, export, possession, offering, acquisition or use of speciality pharmaceutials that contains one of these (cannabis-derivative) substances", while all cannabis products must be approved by the National Medical Safety Agency (Agence nationale de sécurité du médicament – ANSM). A Pharmacists' Union spokesperson explained to the media that the change will make it more straightforward to conduct research into cannabinoids. >>   Click > here < for current info on Medical Cannabis.

France - Resource, Org; local Cannabis médical - Wikipédia | Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le cannabis médical (appelé aussi cannabis thérapeutique, marijuana médicale ou marijuana thérapeutique[1]) désigne le cannabis Sativa (désignation botanique du Chanvre), et, par extension, l'ensemble des dizaines de phyto-cannabinoïdes destinés à un usage purement médical, généralement prescrits pour leurs vertus antiémétiques. À ce jour, compte tenu de l'évolution des connaissances scientifiques dans le domaine des cannabinoïdes, l'usage médical du cannabis devient de plus en plus toléré, voire légal dans un nombre grandissant de pays; le Canada, la Belgique, l'Australie, les Pays-Bas, le Royaume-Uni, la Nouvelle-Zélande, l'Espagne, et 13 États américains (Californie, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Michigan).

France - Resource, Laws; local Is marijuana legal in France - The Q&A wiki | Is medical marijuana legal in France? > Answer: No. >> Surely the most repressive country in the whole Western Europe regarding simple use and consumption of cannabis-based products. The prohibition is the law even if the Justice ministry has passed requirements to prosecutors not to jail someone for tiny amounts considered as for personal use. But in practise, the French law system is so harsh that it has even be condemned recently in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. The reason is as follow: the use of illicit drugs (of any nature) is a minor offense, up to 1 year in jail -- "minor", a question of speaking... --, while possession and trafic can lead to 20 years sentences, even life sentences -- according to the new Penal Code of 1994. But it happens that someone that is caught with tiny amounts of cannabis can easily prosecuted under the term of "detention of illicit drug with intent to trafficking by way of networked crime". And the Penal Code says that under this charge the police can keep you in custody for 4 days. Usually for a common crime even serious one the custody is fixed at 1 or 2 days. So the police have the power to impose this 4 days of custody (without the presence of their lawyer) for the possession of cannabis for personal use.   Visit - wiki.answers.com/Q/Is_marijuana_legal_in_France

France - Resource, Org; local Cannabis in France | 1. Introduction: S'il existait un gouvernement qui eût intérêt à corrompre ses gouvernés, il n'aurait qu'à encourager l'usage du cannabis (If there were a government had interest in corrupting its citizens, it only had to encourage the use of cannabis). This saying of the French poet Baudelaire (1821-1867) is sometimes cited in France as an answer to the question why cannabis use is punishable. It is characteristic of the French drug policy to use this kind of frightening arguments to prevent cannabis use, as the French policy regarding drug use is first of all prohibitive. Both the official policy, the drug law of 1970, and its application -although not following strictly the law- are quite severe.

For a number of years there has been a discussion in France on the cannabis policy. This debate was initiated by the Minister of the Interior Charles Pasqua, known to be partisan of a repressive zero tolerance attitude towards cannabis use. The reason Pasqua lanced this debate was that in his eyes law was not applied everywhere as it should. In other words, law enforcement was not strict enough. The debate that followed soon focused on what is called the depenalization of cannabis use, which means that cannabis use should no longer be regarded as a criminal offense. This is different from legalisation of (the product) cannabis. ... Health and Medical Research, studied the prevalence of cannabis at secondary schools. ...

France - Resource, Org; local Le cannabis en France Tim (1996) | Le cannabis en France, Sommaire: Tim Boekhout van Solinge. Introduction; "S'il existait un gouvernement qui eut intérêt à corrompre ses gouvernés, il n'aurait qu'à encourager l'usage du cannabis". Cet adage de Baudelaire (1821- 1867) est parfois cité en France comme réponse à la question "pourquoi l'usage du cannabis est-il sanctionné?". On le trouve par exemple dans une brochure d'information sur la drogue, un argumentaire antidrogue destiné aux douaniers, gendarmes et agents de police, chargés de donner des informations sur la drogue, par exemple dans les écoles dans le cadre des programmes de prévention de la drogue. Les questions fréquemment posées et leurs réponses figurent dans cette brochure. Une des questions les plus fréquemment posées est la suivante "pourquoi interdire l'usage du haschich?". La première réponse donnée par la brochure est la citation de Baudelaire. La seconde est la suivante : "le cannabis est une drogue et une drogue est un poison".1]

C'est une caractéristique de la politique française en matière de drogue et des programmes de prévention qui en font partie, d'utiliser des arguments aussi terrifiants pour prévenir l'usage de la drogue, car la politique française en matière de drogue est en premier lieu prohibitionniste. Non seulement cette politique est l'une des plus strictes de l'Union Européenne d'après la lettre, les textes de lois, mais elle est également stricte dans l'application de la loi (qui ne suit pas entièrement la loi, il est vrai).

Il existe depuis quelques années un débat sur la politique en matière de drogue. Si le problème du Sida n'avait pas eu une telle ampleur en France, ce débat n'aurait probablement pas eu lieu, car il est apparu à quel point une politique prohibitionniste peut être funeste. La question du Sida était déjà très sensible en France en raison de l'affaire du sang contaminé. Les choses ont un peu changé depuis : il y a distribution de méthadone -bien qu'elle se fasse encore à petite échelle - et il est désormais possible d'acheter des seringues en pharmacie. La législation sur la drogue, basée sur une loi datant de 1970, est cependant encore très sévère. La législation française ne fait pas de distinction entre le cannabis et les autres drogues, ce qui signifie que l'usage du cannabis est toujours assimilé à un délit. ...

International law

Marijuana is in Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, making it subject to special restrictions. Article 2 provides for the following, in reference to Schedule IV drugs:

    A Party shall, if in its opinion the prevailing conditions in its country render it the most appropriate means of protecting the public health and welfare, prohibit the production, manufacture, export and import of, trade in, possession or use of any such drug except for amounts which may be necessary for medical and scientific research only, including clinical trials therewith to be conducted under or subject to the direct supervision and control of the Party.

This provision, while apparently providing for the limitation of marijuana to research purposes only, also seems to allow some latitude for nations to make their own judgments. The official Commentary on the Single Convention indicates that Parties are expected to make that judgment in good faith.

They have their own laws though, instead of the threat of jail they threaten you with a fine for 20 grams or less. The “gendarmes” and the local police do not have the right to search for no reason like the douaniers but they may write you up or even take you in if you are unlucky. Judges give you the option of talking to an addiction speacialist and 95% of the time they report that you are just a casual normal person who happens to use cannabis and that is the end of it. If you have a small amount most likely they will just take it away from you. i have smoked hash throughout the city in the streets and people dont care(as long as there not cops). * Learn more >>

    France - Resource, Contacts; local Underground - WeBeHigh.org Nice, France | Smoking tolerance level: 4 (depending) --- Nice, the fifth largest city in France, is one of the jewels of the French Riviera. Located on the country’s balmy southern coast, the Côte d’Azur, the former Roman city bounced between French and Sardinian ownership until France took permanent ownership in 1860. Moroccan hash is far more prevalent in France than green bud, which can cost a little more. The French street slang for hash is “shit” and a “barette” is 10 grams. Pot is called “herbs” or “beu.” Be warned that “Chernobyl,” while touted to be a powerful strain of hash, is actually a nasty mix of cannabis that has been known to include toxic ingredients such as motor oil and shoe polish. As with most resort towns, the best way to find smoke in Nice is to keep your eyes, ears and nose open for people indulging down at the beach or some other remote spot. Otherwise, check out the clubs.

    Although Nice is built for fun, visitors should keep in mind that France’s government takes a harsh stance on drugs. “No distinction exists between hard and soft drugs in French law,” explains pro-pot organization NORML. “In theory, all drug use is a criminal offence imposing a penalty of two months to one year in jail in addition to a fine of 53 to 1,625 EUR The group reports, however, that the courts are “flexible” in how they apply the law. Often judges will simply issue a warning if the defendant has been caught with an amount deemed for personal use. NORML explained that a 1978 order from the country’s justice ministry told prosecutors to take it easy on defendants brought in for cannabis. “The circular effectively decriminalized the use of cannabis leaf and resin in France,” NORML said. * Learn more >>

France - Resource, Org; local Cannabidiol (CBD) In Depth | Michigan Me... When it comes to the Medical Cannabis movement there are really only 2 things ..... "Paper-making type of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) cultivated in France: ... When it comes to the Medical Cannabis movement there are really only 2 things that truly matter. Legality and Efficacy. In other threads i explain Legalities as i can and how we need to directly deal with Law Enforcement Officials face to face and help them understand as they help us understand their positions. Without proper knowledge, nobody wins. With proper education and information, everyone can win. That is my only goal. Ten mg. of THC is required to get a psychoactive effect from 'marijuana.' It would require 50-100 cigarettes of the French hemp cultivated for paper to get a psychoactive high. "Paper-making type of hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) cultivated in France: Constituents compared to those of marijuana," Fournier and Paris, (French) Plantes Medicinales et Phytotherapie, Vol. 13(2) April, 1979, pp. 116-121. ...

France - Resource, Org; local Patients Choice of Colorado | Medical Ca... The history of cannabis products and their use has been long, colorful and varied. "To the agriculturist, cannabis is a fiber crop; to the physician, it is an enigma; to the user, a euphoriant; to the police, a menace; to the trafficker, a source of profitable danger; to the convict or parolee and his family, a source of sorrow" (Mikuriya, 1969: 34). The fact is that cannabis has been held simultaneously in high and low esteem at various times throughout recorded history, particularly in our own times. Other medical uses were later developed and spread throughout the Middle East, Africa, and Eastern Europe. Several years after the return of Napoleon's army from Egypt, cannabis became widely accepted by Western medical practitioners. Previously, it had had limited use for such purposes as the treatment of burns. The scientific members of Napoleon's forces were interested in the drug's pain relieving and sedative effects. It was used during, and to a greater extent, following his rule in France, especially after 1840 when the work of such physicians as O'Shaughnessy, Aubert-Roche, and Moreau de Tours drew wide attention to this drug.

With the rise of the literary movement of the 1840-1860 period in France (Gautier, Baudelaire, Dumas, etc.), cannabis became somewhat popular as an intoxicant of the intellectual classes. In the United States, medical interest in cannabis use was evidenced in 1860 by the convening of a Committee on Cannabis Indica of the Ohio State Medical Society, which reported on its therapeutic applications (McMeens, 1860: 1). Between the period 1840-1890, Walton states that more than 100 articles were published recommending cannabis for one disorder or another. ...

France - Resource, Org; local Ed Rosenthal: Pirates and Supposed Frenc... | The second article is about a statment made by Bernad Kouchner, founder of Doctors Without Borders and a proponent of human rights. Although Mr. K is a socialist, he joined French President Sarkozy's conservative government. Shortly after taking office, Mr. K requested to appoint a minister for Human Rights in the foreign ministry and his request was granted. He now says he made a big mistake, the policies of government and human rights can never really be reconciled. Former minister of Human Rights as appointed by Kouchner, Senagal-born French lawyer Rama Yade said "France has not renounced its role as a country of human rights" and that the French People know that human rights serve a purpose.

Perhaps Mrs. Yade, Mr. K and Mr. Sarkozy should look in their own backyard, where you can get busted for wearing a pot t-shirt- so much for human rights and freedom of speech! Even in the United States, the heart of darkness of the drug war, cops may want to bust you for wearing a pot t-shirt, but they cant.

And that's just part of it! In France, any advocacy of changing the laws is illegal and prosecuted. The French publisher of my book Closet Cultivator was placed on trial in France for publishing the book! They felt it besmerched his publishing company, which specialized in porn. And of course, there are harsh laws for cultivation, transport, sale and possession. I even saw someone busted at Jim Morrison's grave! ...

Senate approves medical marijuana bill - Monday, December 15, 2008 | TRENTON BUREAU: A Senate committee today cleared a measure that would allow medical use of marijuana in New Jersey. The Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee voted to approve the long-stalled bill by a 6 to 1 margin; two senators abstained. The bill calls for creating “alternative treatment centers” where people with chronic and terminal diseases would be allowed access to marijuana. Supporters say marijuana is a viable treatment option to alleviate pain in many cases.

“It is the definition of basic human decency that we do whatever we can to ease the pain and suffering of people living with severe chronic and terminal diseases,” said bill sponsor Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Union. “When all other avenues of currently-approved pain relief have been exhausted, we need to give doctors the freedom to prescribe medical marijuana to give their patients a measure of comfort and dignity in the face of their debilitating diseases. This bill is about the most humane, compassionate option for those state residents who have nowhere else to turn in managing their illnesses.”

If ultimately approved by the full Legislature and signed by Governor Corzine, New Jersey would be the 14th state to allow medical use of marijuana.   ...   Visit - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?t=106356.

The study, which was conducted over a two year period and included 775 patients from the USA, Africa, and Puerto Rico, assessed the use of cannabis as a symptom management approach for anxiety, depression, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea, and peripheral neuropathy.  27% of survey participants reported using cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Researchers wrote that cannabis use “was rated slightly more effective than antidepressants for anxiety and depression, Imodium for diarrhea, [over the counter] (OTC) medications for fatigue, and anti-epileptics and OTC medications for neuropathy” while cannabis was rated “slightly less effective for nausea than either prescribed or OTC medications.”   Authors concluded that cannabis “is perceived by users as at least as effective as prescribed medications in symptom management.”   ...   Visit - http://safeaccessnow.org/blog/?cat=22.

France - Resource, News; local France Will Allow Certain Medical Use Of Marijuana | EXPERIMENTAL MOVE IS INITIAL STEP AT POSSIBLY EASING HARSH DRUG LAWS >> PARIS—The French government will approve the experimental medical use of marijuana in hospitals next year as a first tentative step toward relaxing the country's Draconian drug laws. Discussions also are to be held early next year on the abolition of prison sentences for possession of small quantities of marijuana and other 'soft' drugs - perhaps eventually leading to decriminalization of cannabis use, government officials say. Although the government has ruled out any formal change in drug laws in the near future, it is contemplating administrative changes to soften the harsh French rules. To help counter political opposition, the government has commissioned a scientific study of the relative dangers of marijuana and other illegal substances, including comparisons with legal drugs such as alcohol and nicotine. "We can act . . . without waiting for a change in the law," Health Minister Bernard Kouchner told a two-day national conference on drug abuse, held at the health ministry last weekend. More than 200 doctors, drug experts, scientists, teachers and social workers recommended that the government should abolish the 1970 drug laws, which they described as "obsolete and inoperative." ... cannabis joint to each of the 577 ...   Visit - www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v98.n009.a09.html

France - Resource, News; Portugal drug law show results ten years on, experts say Portugal drug law show results ten years on, experts say France Approves Medical Marijuana Experiment, Debates Marijuana Decriminalization. - 01 July 2011; Agence France-Presse1 | AFP - Health experts in Portugal said Friday that Portugal's decision 10 years ago to decriminalise drug use and treat addicts rather than punishing them is an experiment that has worked. "There is no doubt that the phenomenon of addiction is in decline in Portugal," said Joao Goulao, President of the Institute of Drugs and Drugs Addiction, a press conference to mark the 10th anniversary of the law.

The number of addicts considered "problematic" -- those who repeatedly use "hard" drugs and intravenous users -- had fallen by half since the early 1990s, when the figure was estimated at around 100,000 people, Goulao said.

Russia - Resources US Government Says It Will Stop Interfering with Medical Marijuana | According to this article, US Attorney General Eric Holder has said that states will be allowed to make their own rules about medical marijuana, and that the US federal government will stop raiding medical marijuana dispensaries in California. (See article “Can Marijuana Help Rescue California’s Economy?”at this link) In the 1990s, several US states passed referendums which allowed marijuana to be used legally for medical purposes. In a referendum, the registered voters vote directly on the proposed law, as opposed to the law being passed by the state legislature. Thus, when these states passed these referendums, it meant that the citizens of these states really wanted medical marijuana to be made legal.

However, in a blatant disregard for democracy and the people’s will, under the Bush administration, the national government refused to accept this law, and carried out raids of the medical marijuana dispensaries.   ...   Click > here < for more.

Medical Cannabis, History - Letter: Medical Marijuana Informational Guide on Medical Cannabis | If you have ever heard of the song, “Lets Go Get Stoned,” as sung by Ray Charles or Joe Cocker, you know the lyrics were referring to getting high or using cannabis aka marijuana. This mind altering drug goes by other names as well; names such as weed, pot, joint, blunt, hash and mary jane are quite common among users. Cannabis is a plant that contains a chemical called cannabinoids or cannabinolidic acids. Another substance that is found in cannabis is THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, which gives the users that “high” sensation. When speaking of marijuana, the actual substance used in creating the high feeling comes from the leaves and flowering tops of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is considered to be a schedule 1 controlled substance today, because of the THC, which can be highly potent, depending upon the concentration factor of the THC.

Medical Cannabis - Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine Proven : Cannabis is Safe Medicine by Ian Williams Goddard | In reaction to medical cannabis access referendums on the ballots in Arizona and California, former presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George Bush signed a letter stating that they "categorically oppose'' access to cannabis for its many proven therapeutic uses such as the prevention of blindness and epileptic seizures. Their chief concern was that legal medical access would send the message that cannabis is safe. The presidents can, however, lay their safety concerns to rest because the scientific literature overwhelmingly confirms that cannabis is both an effective and safe medicine. The Cannabis Safety Profile. The journal PHARMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS reports that decades of research prove that, "Compared with legal drugs...marijuana does not pose greater risks." Yet based upon mortality statistics, we can safely conclude that cannabis is one of the safest medical drugs known, for, while prescription drugs, defined as safe by the FDA, kill up to 27,000 and aspirin up to 1,000 Americans per year, cannabis kills 0 per year.
