Our interest: THC

Many people use THC containing products medicinally or recreationally. But hash and weed are still illegal. Therefore, THC users face a variety of problems. We, the Legalize it! association, help people who use THC products with legal questions. For this purpose we offer personal consultations and written information.

We follow the political development surrounding hemp in Switzerland and publish our evaluations of it. Ultimately, we want to achieve the complete legalization of hemp - even if the path there remains long.

Our main topics can be reached via the six headings in the navigation at the top of the page (or in the hamburger menu on your cell phone). The quick navigation leads to the respective sub-topics of a main topic (here to the latest news from our association, the prosecution and politics). Below you will find all current information from the Legalize it! association.

25.06.2024 – Field report on hemp as medicine

Since 2022, exceptional authorization is no longer required for the medical prescription of products containing THC. Flowers can now also be prescribed. One affected person has written a comprehensive report on her experiences: From the diagnosis to the prescription of THC drops at the time to the current prescription of flowers to the assumption of costs by the health insurance company. This report gives a good insight into the possibilities and difficulties of the medical use of THC. If you have also had experience with medicinal hemp, we are very interested in your report.


18.06.2024 – First part of our advertising campaign

flyer2024zh.jpg Thanks to a generous donation, we are able to carry out various advertising campaigns this year.

In the second half of June, we will have 3,500 of our flyers placed in over a hundred locations in Zurich. If you spot our flyers at one of these locations, please send us a photo! This is the first step in our 2024 advertising campaign.

By the way: If you have or know a place where we can also put up flyers, please get in touch. We will then send you a pack of flyers.

After the summer vacations, we will be setting up in Aarau, Basel, Bern, Lucerne and St. Gallen. We hope to gain new members and active participants and perhaps also one or two donations!

This will be followed in the fall by a poster campaign for our event on November 1 (more to follow).

04.06.2024 – Findings at CannaTrade

The CannaTrade ended a few days ago. The hemp fair was a little smaller this year, but we still spoke to many new and familiar people.

We sensed a certain euphoria in some of them: if Germany has taken steps towards legalization, then things will progress here too? But we have to make a skeptical remark: Just because the federal administration and the sub-commission are working something out doesn't mean it will turn out well.

We remember: in 2004, the National Council scuttled all the discussions, reports and work of the administration since 1996 in two votes, see article in LI30. That was that!

Now most people are again hoping that it will work out easily. But at the panel discussion on the topic at the CannaTrade, it became clear that the sub-commission has not yet even addressed such fundamental questions as taxation (this would probably require a constitutional article and thus a majority of the cantons in a vote, which everyone considers unrealistic) or whether outdoor and/or indoor cultivation should be legalized. So there are still many unanswered questions. The sub-commission's proposal is due to be published in the fall, when we will be able to find out more.

We really think that we urgently need a few hundred people across the country to campaign for a change. That means taking part in podiums, standing on street stalls, writing letters to the editor, giving interviews, managing social media and, ideally, standing there with their picture and name and representing the cause. Otherwise, we fear there will be no successful vote (and it is practically certain that a vote will be held).

At the CannaTrade, we unfortunately did not sense any willingness to tackle this effort. That is why we are not euphoric.
