Even though the CDU / CSU parliamentary group can hardly be described as an advanced party in debates on the subject of cannabis and because of the statements made by its drug commissioners for the second time in office, not all the politicians of the Union have stood on the wrong track. Obviously, some people in the conservative camp, despite the prevailing mood in their ranks, independently deal with the ongoing upheavals in global drug policy and do not shy away from the presentable results. After the health politician Erwin Rüddel Uruguay visited, finally changed his opinion on the approach in this country. The chairman of the Health Committee is now promoting cannabis model projects.
” I came there with hesitation and very thoughtful, ” said Rüddel the Stuttgart news in retrospect on his trip to Uruguay,which gave him the impetus for the now required care attempt in cannabis model projects. Since the legalization of cannabis in the South American country would have virtually dried up the black market, but where it still existed to concentrate on particularly strong varieties of intoxicating hemp plants, one would now have to make model tests in their own and the local circumstances Gather data that would finally bring progress to the deadlocked debate. According to Rüddel, pharmacies should be allowed to give cannabis to persons over the age of 18 who have previously registered as participants in the scientific model experiment in order to obtain usable results.To clarify the extent to which a more liberal drug policy could have an impact on society . With facts gained in this way one would finally have some instruments to objectify the entire and often emotionally led discussion something, is the CDU health politician Erwin Rüddel sure. However, the Chairman of the Federal Health Committee Rüddel currently receives even less from his own party comrades than from other political camps, where the change of heart is immediately strongly supported and hopes for rapid progress.
