Germany: Already 37 interested parties for cannabis cultivation associations in Rhineland-Palatinate

Cannabis cultivation associations in Rhineland-Palatinate can apply for a permit from the State Office for Social Affairs, Youth and Care (LSJV) in Mainz from July 1. The state office has currently received 37 expressions of interest, as the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Social Affairs in Mainz informed the German Press Agency. The prerequisite for an application is the prior registration of the associations in the register of associations.

The cultivation associations for the communal cultivation of cannabis are then regularly inspected once a year, the ministry added. There are also ad hoc inspections. This task is also carried out by the LSJV. A corresponding state ordinance is currently being prepared.

With the entry into force of the first major part of the federal cannabis law on April 1, the possession and cultivation of limited quantities of cannabis is generally permitted for adults. The cultivation associations should be able to get started by the deadline of July 1. If the applications are complete, the state office has three months to process them, the ministry announced.

Twelve associations in which the name Cannabis appears are already registered in the state register portal for Rhineland-Palatinate. They are based in Koblenz, Cochem, Mainz, Landau, Lambrecht (Palatinate), Bellheim, W├Ârth am Rhein, Diez, Neuwied, Idar-Oberstein and Schenkelberg. Following a survey of local courts, there are already a number of other applications for registration from potential growers' associations. However, the local courts are not talking about a "rush".
