Germany to legalize cannabis use for recreational purposes

Chancellor Olaf Scholz's administration announced intentions to legalize marijuana on Wednesday, making Germany one of the first nations in Europe to do so.

Additionally legalized would be the purchase and possession of 20 to 30 grams of recreational cannabis for individual use.
