Status of Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) in Switzerland.

  Info on Switzerland and Medical Cannabis 

Switzerland does NOT have a MEDICAL MARIJUANA (cannabis) LAW.

Switzerland - status Switzerland | While Switzerland is allowing for cannabis medicine in a research project ("Switzerland has officially become the 23rd nation in the world to approve Sativex for use by those with multiple sclerosis; Sativex is a medical spray made up entirely of cannabis-derived cannabinoids.", see >> News << below), there is no law specifically permitting folks to grow, prepare and use for medical purposes. However, cannabis (marijuana) is decriminalized in Switzerland and cultivation is legal in a private property. Though all possession and cultivation remains illegal in all parts of the country, coffee shops can still be found in Bienne and Interlaken. On the whole, people possessing small doses are very rarely prosecuted (see Legality of cannabis in Switzerland, below). >> Click > here < for current info.

  The Law, LEGAL Resources  

Switzerland - status Legal and medical status of cannabis From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Switzerland (Europe) Possession: Illegal (decriminalized); Sale, Transport, Cultivation: Illegal | Cannabis is decriminalized for possession, sale or transport is Illegal but cultivation is legal in a private property only. However, usually only the minimum penalty is imposed for possession and personal use, even for larger amounts. The federal council has committed to implement changes as to decriminalization of personal use and possession already in 2001, and the parliament is currently tasked to tender concrete approaches. As nothing is coming forth on a parliamentary basis, a referendum was launched in 2008. As of 1 January 2012, the cantons Vaud, Neuchatel, Geneva and Fribourg have allowed the growing and cultivation of up to 4 cannabis plants per person, in an attempt to curb illegal street trafficking, but this cantonal law was unvalidated in October 2012, as federal law must prevail on cantonal law. >> Source > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis_by_country

Switzerland Organizations and other Resources Medical Marijuana in Europe - Medical Marijuana | Where in Europe is medical marijuana legal or decriminalized? Legality of medical weed or cannabis in European countries. Medical marijuana is currently legal or decriminalized in the Czech Republic, Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. Possession of (small amounts of) marijuana is generally tolerated or not penalized in Belgium, Croatia, Estonia, Italy, and Switzerland.   While Germany has theoretically decriminalized medical marijuana, the rules are applied so stringently that it is effectively impossible to get approved as a medical marijuana patient. > Learn more >> http://medicalmarijuana.org/en/content/20-medical-marijuana-in-europe

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.

Switzerland Organizations and other Resources Cannabis in Switzerland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Cannabis in Switzerland that contains more than 1,0 % of THC is classified as an illegal drug in Switzerland. Thus, according to the Federal Law on Drugs, production, culture, use and possession of cannabis are prohibited, and considered as criminal infringements. These infringements are punishable by three years of imprisonment, or by a fine. Since 28 September 2012, the possession of less than 10 grams of cannabis is no longer a criminal infringement, but is still punished by a 100 Swiss francs flat fine. Professional cannabis trade, as well as the possession of a quantity of cannabis that can affect the health of a large number of people (4 kg of hashish, according to the Federal Court), are punished by one to three years of imprisonment, that can be cumulated with a fine.   The enforcement of the prohibition on cannabis is spotty, because around 500,000 Swiss people are believed to use cannabis regularly or occasionally. In a health poll conducted in 1997, 7% of people aged 15 to 39 stated that they were currently consuming cannabis. Overall, enforcement varies substantially depending on the canton. On 5 October 2012, the Federal Court invalidated the Latin Concordat on hemp culture and trading, that came into force on 1 January 2012, which allowed private citizens in the cantons of Geneva, Freiburg, Valais, Vaud, Neuchâtel, Bâle-Town and Ticino to grow up to 4 hemp plants (containing less than 1% of THC), for violating the Federal Law on drugs. > Learn more >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_in_Switzerland

Switzerland Organizations and other Resources UPDATE: This post has been the target of some controversy in the comments section, where there has been some confusion of whether Switzerland is indeed allowing the growth of 4 cannabis plants in someone’s home. Since we are one of the few English-speaking publications to address this issue, it has been hard to ascertain any information contrary to what is stated in the post below.   But thanks to a reader, we may be able to shed more light on the subject. Pat Mächler from the comments section emailed us about the story, and provided links to us that serve to clarify it. He sent us a link to it being covered in what they say is Switzerland’s largest circulating newspaper, which happens to be in French. You can find the English translation here.

Switzerland Legalizes Growing Cannabis At Home (Updated) Old Hippie - November 18, 2011 | The story states that people in Switzerland can indeed grow up to four plants in their home, but the THC content can in no case exceed 0.3%, basically meaning they can grow hemp. In which case the new law seems rather useless. Hemp can be used for many things, but you can’t just cut down a plant and make a shirt.   There is industrialization involved, although hemp seeds can be eaten raw and it can be used in a variety of foods. But for those who seek relief in a medical sense and need THC to achieve that relief, that is still illegal in Switzerland. ... Four of the seven Swiss cantons (similar to states in the U.S.) will be allowing individuals to grow four cannabis plants at their home, starting in January ... > Learn more >> http://the420times.com/2011/11/switzerland-legalizes-growing-cannabis-at-home/

    Switzerland - status; WeBeHigh.com | Worldwide Marijuana Travel Guide, Marijuana Prices, Spots & Legalization Status in Basel. Basel | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: Growing is legal, purchasing is legal but smoking isn’t. Law enforcement: Although it’s still illegal to smoke dope, Basel’s city prosecutor is known to tolerate doses up to 30 grams of marijuana. Dealing, however, is verboten. Where to buy marijuana: Marijuana can be found all over the city – if you know where to look. The easiest place to buy though is by the Rhine in Klein Basel, in between MittleBrucke and JohaniteBruke. All along the river (especially in Summer) there are groups of Africans and Moraccans selling bud, and hashish. Quality varies wildly from group to group – most will try and sell you outdoor grown swiss weed – but if you ask for it you can usually find some great indoor grown skunk. Hashish is just as easy to find in the same places, but the quality is not normally as good as the bud.

    Marijuana Prices: Typically 50chf for 3.5g of the outdoor weed, or for 2-3g of indoor. Smaller bags are normally no problem – with prices at around 20chf for about 1g of indoor. hashish is about the same price (50chf for an 8th) but most dealers will haggle a bit, especially if you want to buy alot. Marijuana brands: Only high potency no seeds weed is sold. You may find many brands for purchase.

    More information: Although technically illegal as a drug, marijuana production (agricultural and private) and distribution in the form of stores specializing in the sale of “hemp” products are found throughout the country. The report pointed out that marijuana cultivation in Switzerland had greatly increased during the 1990s and that most of the crop was destined for the illegal market rather than the legal one (e.g. as a renewable raw material for textile production). According to an investigation in all cantons, hashish was mainly sold on the street while marijuana was being sold more and more through hemp shops as “aromatic pillows.” Switzerland is comprised of 26 states (cantons), each with its own constitution, parliament, government and court system as provided by the Federal Constitution. Understanding Switzerland’s political structure helps to understand its drug policy. It can be argued that Switzerland has 26 different drug polices, one for each canton and half-canton.

    The police view is that the vast majority of hemp fields in Switzerland are used to produce cannabis supplied to the drug trade. It can be assumed that in 1998 considerably more than 100 metric tons of drug-grade cannabis were harvested. Today Switzerland has an almost nationwide network of 135 hemp shops. The big increase started in 1996 and led to the creation of major centers in the city and canton of Zurich (a total of 36), in the canton of St. Gallen (18), in Ticino (16) in Basel (7) and in the canton of Berne (6). Police information shows that between 85 and 95 percent of sales in most hemp shops come from drug products (“hemp pillows”, “aromatic bags”, “refills for aromatic bags”, “hemp coins” etc.) The THC content of cannabis sold in “aromatic bags” is frequently between 8 and 10 percent, for example. >> Learn more >>

Biel-Bienne | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4 --- Legislation: It is not legal to smoke pot in Switzerland, but very common. Law enforcement: It depends a bit from the Cantons, sometimes strict, sometimes really easy. If they catch you with a small amounth, the leave you. Sometimes you get a fine.

    Where to buy marijuana: It is very easy to get weed and hash in a good quality. Go to the old town and ask young people there. Perhaps you get even a free smoke or even a good deal outside Restaurant St.Gervais. Marijuana Prices: Outdoor from 5 to 8 Swissfranc a gramm. Indoor organic or hydroponic from 8 to 15 Swissfrancs. Marocan, Lebanese or what ever Hash between 8 and 20 Francs.

    Switzerland - status; WeBeHigh.com | Worldwide Marijuana Travel Guide, Marijuana Prices, Spots & Legalization Status in Geneva. Geneva | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5 --- Legislation: Switzerland is a federal state and the law on drugs is the same for all provinces. According to the Swiss law- it is illegal to own or carry pot or hash, except for private smoking involving small quantities in a private place. In Switzerland there are many cantons, which each have there own rules so depending where you are marijuana is legal. In Zürich and Bern it has been legalized. In Geneva the legalization of Marijuana is a big topic of debate, though due to huge demand it should be legalized quite soon. Law enforcement: In most of Switzerland where marijuana has not YET been legalized, its smoking is quiet tolerated by police and the general public as long as you are not causing any trouble. Geneva is alot less strict that most other places I’ve been to, its pretty easy just to go to a small park and smoke quietly with some friends.

    as long as u don’t make too much noise or cause trouble, and try not to smoke around police areas, then the police force doesn’t generally give you too much hassle. if you are caught it depends on the officer and your age, but they usually take it away from u and give you a warning (unless you have more than 1g or 2gs). another reporter added: “In Geneva, the police are far more interested in the dealers than the customers, and if you smoke quietly in a park or a forest you should be fine. ” most of the time their cops usually around the docks and in the train station but its easy to find a place to chill try a place close to the bus stops making getting home blazed a lot easier.

    Where to buy marijuana: a park by the lake called parc de st jean is your best bet, its just by the bridge… go there and ask around… otherwise there are some rasta guys who sit by the port near rue du rhone, just go and ask them. Although buying off the street is relatively risky as the police monitor many of the big dealers; the best places would be the park near the Jet d’eau (although all you can find there is hashish, but this tends to be relatively good quality), and the park across the bridge from the Stand tram stop. If you have problems finding just find some racailles (teenagers with tracksuits and baseball caps) and ask them. Most of them either deal or can direct you to the best weed in Geneva. another report added: well you can try basicaly any of the parks around 10 at night or ask any of the teenagers with the white track suits on. go for the ones in white not blue the blue are French not swiss. any private dealer will give u a much better run for your money, don’t give the dealer the money befor u get the weed because a lot of time the guys in the park have weed hidden in a bush and go to get it.

Interlaken | Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5 --- Legislation: It’s illegal to grow, posses and smoke. but you can buy seeds at many grow shops, go figure. Law enforcement: Don’t walk around the main street with a spliff in your hand yelling I’m high. Lots of nice secluded areas in and around the town were you can skin up and smoke away.

    Where to buy marijuana: in Interlaken, Bern - There are two train stations around interlaken (west and east(ost) and 1 main road connecting them. Cruise to the west train station and walk under the station (the underpass to the other rail road tracks), just look for some younger swissie kids, they are very approachable, although a bit pricey for switzerland it’s still a good buy. Marijuana Prices: I wouldnt pay them any more than 15 swiss francs per gram of indoor and not more than 10 for outdoor.

    Marijuana brands: most outdoor in this area is decent stuff apart from havin seeds. indoor does the job though sometimes its not properly flushed and doesnt have the full taste. More information: Don’t be shy to ask, most younger swiss people in this area smoke. >> Learn more >>

    Switzerland - status; WeBeHigh.com | Worldwide Marijuana Travel Guide, Marijuana Prices, Spots & Legalization Status in Lugano. Lugano | --- Legislation: Growing is legal, purchasing is legal but smoking isn’t. Law enforcement: The cops are almost not even there. It is tough to find places to smoke because the cops ride motorcycles and they can sneak up on you a little. That said, people openly smoke pot in public at the park so im guessing the cops might be a little lax. Also, this place to go has been for a couple years with the same dude so i figure if there worth there weight in salt they would do something if they cared. So my advice to you is relax and indulge but if you see cops anywhere I would skat.

    Where to buy marijuana: There is a park by the lake – It’s big so you will find it for sure. Inside the park there is one path that is a circle. You follow that until you see a shelter looking structure and there will usually be chilling there. Make sure you go after 2 though because they do not usually get there until then. Anyways, there should be a scroungy looking guy there that has a brown and white pitt bull that he sometimes chills with. He will most likely approach you but if he doesn’t walk by him and say “Dove Ganja”. He is stingy and won’t negotiate on prices but hey that’s the spot i know… Latest updates say: Bar oops…take the bus towards pregassona to stop Sacro Coure. Turn left off the bus and then its right in front of you, look for guys around the church and hanging in front of the glass windows Lugano Marijuana Prices: I paid 50 francs which is like 40 dollars maybe a little more. In the US i would not pay that much for the quality or quantity I received BUT like i said before thats the spot i know.

    Marijuana brands: The weed he sells is decent. Its not anything that would be sold in Amsterdam but its not bad. There might be a seed or two. The buds have very dark hairs brown in color. I smoked two joints (one big one small) between 4 people and the high was nice and lasted for about 4 hours. It gave me bad cottonmouth but it might be a result drinking enough water. Marijuana Prices: 50 francs for 3-5 grams…mostly 3…sometimes 2.5 if there stingy. 5 grams is usually not so great outdoor leafy bud All depends on your luck. I’ve had really good indoor and really shitty outdoor, good hash though, u never go wrong with the hash, which is more readily available than weed most the time.

    More information: Lugano is awesome, there will usually be people indulging in some sort of mind altering experience in the park and there is a nice lake with beaches. There are tons of mountains and everyone should check it out. >> Learn more >>

According to the Swiss law- it is illegal to own or carry pot or hash, except for private smoking involving small quantities in a private place. Law enforcement: Smoking is usually not risky on most spots, as there aren’t really that many cops. . If you do get in trouble, the police will write you a ticket and fine. Teenagers under 18 who are caught smoking pot, will be arrested until released by their parents. Near the lake is probably the least safe place to smoke outdoors, while smoking indoors is safe.

    Where to buy marijuana: in CH there are no more head shop after 2004 (i live there)..its so difficult now to find anything!!! Buying Mrijuana or hash on the street is not recommended, but if you get to the Langstrasse area (which is also the red light district of Zurich), you will find street dealers. Marijuana Prices: 4 grams of top quality pot costs about 50 francs = 40 USD. For the same price, you may also get approx. 7 grams of top quality Hash. The prices in Zurich have been stable for the last few years.

    Marijuana brands: Only top quality pot is sold in Zurich, and you may find all Amsterdam brands for sale. More information: While it is technically illegal to light up that hash pipe while kicking back and taking in the sights, most police officers and locals will turn a blind eye and nose to your heavily scented smoke as long as your indulgence is subtle, and you’re over 18. If you do get in trouble, the police will write you a ticket and fine. Teenagers under 18 who are caught smoking pot, will be arrested until released by their parents.

    The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health and the Federal Commission for Drug Issues are both pushing for liberalization of the nation’s drug laws to make dealing and smoking pot and hash a legal pastime. “Altered habits of consumption have turned [cannabis] into a recreational drug enjoyed by a large percentage of the population, unaccompanied by any feelings of wrong doing and a world away from the consumption of ‘hard’ drugs,” the office of Public Health said. The government is currently debating whether to adopt a system making personal consumption legal — similar to the situation in Amsterdam – or establish a completely legal cannabis marketplace. >> Learn more >>

Cannabis's accepted medical use in the United States is increasingly recognized by health care professionals and the medical community, including the Institute of Medicine. Numerous medical organizations support legal access to cannabis for medicinal purposes. A new medical journal released in 2001 focuses on the medicinal use of cannabis and cannabinoids. National clinical conferences on the medicinal use of cannabis have been held in the United States in 2000 and 2002 and are scheduled to continue on a biennial basis. Most importantly, data on the number of physicians currently recommending therapeutic marijuana use to their patients demonstrate its acceptance by the medical community in the United States.

The most significant evidence of marijuana’s acceptance by the medical community in the United States consists of data on the number of physicians currently recommending marijuana medical use by their patients: "By any reasonable definition, marijuana has "currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States."   ...   Visit - http://www.drugscience.org/amu/amu_medprof.html.

i live here. we can get the plants at shops but they are baby. its 100 franc fine for smoking in front of cops. its really stupid. its like half legal. growing was legalized in my canton but according to wikipedia it was overturned by the federal government. whether weed is legal or not, the reality is no one really cares. It really depends on the canton. My canton, close to france is more strict. the german cantons have more free flowing cannabis. for example solothurn is like dank weed city, while montreux is like rip off shwag city. the answer to your question is half legal. we had a referendum on full legalization in 2008, where all of the swiss voted, but it was turned down like prop 19. we would have had shops and everything. i hope the next one will be very soon. anyone know when it is?   actually TECHNICALLY on paper, it is illegal in netherlands too. if you have any more questions please ask. > Read more >> http://forum.grasscity.com/international-marijuana-news/1173405-weed-switzerland.html

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.

For the first time, there is significant dissent at the local, national, and international levels. As national and local governments around the world pursue alternative drug policies, there is unprecedented momentum for reform of the international system. Governments will hold a review of the drug control system in 2016 at the UN General Assembly. This international summit, which is referred to as the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on drugs (UNGASS 2016), is an extraordinary opportunity to consider what works in drug policy. - See more at: > Learn more >> www.hemp.org/news/category/cannabis/switzerland

Switzerland News - Swiss Marijuana Decrim Law Takes Effect Swiss Marijuana Decrim Law Takes Effect | High Times - By Mike Hughes · Fri Oct 04, 2013 | Switzerland has decriminalized marijuana possession. The new law, which took effect October 1, changes the penalties for possession of up to 10 grams of pot. Previously, those caught with any amount of cannabis in Switzerland faced legal proceedings that could result in a permanent criminal record. Under the new law, adults over the age of 18 who are in possession of marijuana can simply pay a fine of 100 Swiss Francs (roughly $110) and get on with their day.   Pot decriminalization was the subject of a lengthy debate in the Swiss parliament. The move to make possession a minor misdemeanor is expected to unify pot policy across the country – previously drug laws had been enforced inconsistently from region to region. It will also offer relief to the court system, which on average heard 30,000 marijuana possession-related cases annually. This in turn will save the government money and free police to focus on more serious crimes. > Learn more >> http://www.hightimes.com/read/swiss-marijuana-decrim-law-takes-effect

Switzerland News - Italy and Switzerland Planning Legal Medical Marijuana www.marijuanapassion.com > Marijuana Growing Forum > Marijuana Forums > Marijuana News > View Full Version : Italy and Switzerland Planning Legal Medical Marijuana - via BBSNews 2006-10-29 | The Italian government has decided that in the future cannabis may be used for the treatment of pain. The parliament has still to hold a vote on this issue. The measure has "nothing to do with joints" Health Minister Livia Turco stated. The reform can only become into effect after the House of Representatives and the Senate have approved it. The opposition is divided on this question. While the right-wing nationalists accused the government to legalize a soft drug, Chiara Moroni of the party "Forza Italia" of opposition leader Silvio Berlusconi supported the decision of the cabinet.   The lawmaker in Switzerland also made a first step to the possibility of a legal use of cannabis products for medical purposes. The Health Committee of the parliament (Nationalrat) has decided with clear majority to suggest to the parliament to change the narcotics law accordingly, said the physician Felix Gutzwiller, president of the parliamentary party FDP and member of the Health Committee, on 24 October in the news of the Swiss television. He therefore assumes that "there will be also a majority in the Nationalrat for the legalization of cannabis as a medicine." > Read more >> http://www.marijuanapassion.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-6908.html


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.

Switzerland HISTORY - Cannabis in Switzerland,| eCannabis.com News Cannabis in Switzerland | eCannabis.com News > Switzerland (officially the Swiss Confederation) has a centuries-old tradition of using hemp as a source of fibre, food and medicine. Although Switzerland Switzerland (officially the Swiss Confederation) has a centuries-old tradition of using hemp as a source of fibre, food and medicine.   Although Switzerland has at times been obliged to tighten its cannabis laws somewhat in keeping with international law, their approach has traditionally been one of tolerance and lenience. It is thought that cannabis has been present in Switzerland for at least 6,500 years (© Tambako the Jaguar)

According to R C Clarke’s seminal work Cannabis Evolution and Ethnobotany, cannabis was introduced to most of Europe during the period 10,000 – 2,000 BP; ancient remnants discovered in the course of archaeological digs have afforded us some evidence of this, although these examples are often disputed due to the difficulty of distinguishing hemp fibre from flax and nettle. While few such sites exist within the borders of present-day Switzerland, there are plentiful sites that lie well within its historic cultural zone, and it is likely that the entire Central European region—settled throughout its history by wide-ranging Celtic, Roman and Germanic peoples—made considerable use of cannabis for fibre and food purposes over several millennia.   Pollen grain analysis conducted in 1996 indicated that Cannabaceae species were present in the lowland regions of the Swiss Alps from around 6,500 BP onwards. Indeed, presence of Cannabaceae (and cereals, from around 4,000 BP onwards) is used as a marker of civilisation by the researchers (it is generally accepted that intentional cultivation of cannabis typically occurs soon after it is first encountered by indigenous peoples). Cannabaceae levels remained consistently high until around 200 BP, at which point a noticeable decline in Cannabaceae and other crop species occurred. This tallies with the height of the Industrial Revolution, and marks the point at which much intensive agriculture was replaced by grazing livestock. > Read more >> ecannabis.com/news/cannabis-in-switzerland

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.
