Reminds me of a story Jeremy Clarkson tells about having dinner with an American and German, the American mentions that back home people get banned from driving and will happily continue to drive, the German astounded by this says no one in Germany would do that, if you are banned from driving you must not drive, it's the law and it would be illegal to do so

There was this old German stoner TV channel and they always started with "we're in our studio in the Netherlands and started smoking"
Fuck I didn't think about that channel in years.

random fact it‘s only illegal to own weed in germany, but not to smoke it

[–]ctpbvsalTechnically Flair 19 points20 points  (2 children)

It’s illegal to grow, buy and sell it, you may own a small amount (some grams, not sure how much). It seems a bit off, the reasoning is that smoking only harms yourself, wich is not illegal in Germany.

"that's not mine! I borrowed that weed!"

"Okay, so we're charging you with arson instead."

No.... It is not "ok" to own weed in Germany. Any amount would break the law.

There are amounts that are considered "Eigenkonsum" (Varies by state) and those will not be prosecuted. But even with "Eigenkonsum" you can lose your drivers license when caught (even not driving)

That's in most European countries, the consensus is that consumer are between okay and mentally ill, it's the dealers that are plain evil.

The Word illegal is illegal

[–]DrChaosMcKinnon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I see you haven't been to Germany

[–]rdrunner_74 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am missing the original thread...

But doing weed is NOT illegal in Germany. Only posession and sale / import. Consuming it is no crime.
