Our legal information

We have been providing legal information to THC enjoyers since 1996. Many are aware of the law the law, they do not understand the horrendous fines or they want to know about possibilities of appeal information. People seeking advice want to know more about their rights, they have problems with the driver's license, or they have just had their first house search - there are many reasons for seeking legal advice.

For this purpose, we have collected a lot of material: laws, ordinances, directives, reports on convictions, fines/penal orders, statistics, stories of repression and much more from thousands of cases. thousands of cases. This information has to be brought up to date again and again, which requires a lot of time and perseverance and is an important part of our work.

Each case we see, each document we receive, in turn, adds up to a piece of the mosaic in our picture of the concrete repression against hemp users and its changes over time as well as the differences between the cantons.

For laws and ordinances are one thing, police orders and prosecutorial prosecution practice the other. These can only be seen in the specific cases and the final penal orders.

Advice hemp and law

We can answer simple questions by telephone over the phone. If you want to understand repression in its various facets, you will quickly need more than a few minutes. For this a personal meeting in our office is more suitable.

Such a consultation usually lasts one hour. Either the topic is prosecution because of dealing with THC (violation, misdemeanor, statements) or we deal with the problem of driver's license and THC (criminal prosecution, traffic office, readings). Since 2015, we also have many requests on the subject of hemp seed import.

In doing so, we can explain the field of repression explain, official documents einordnen and give tips on how to proceed. However, our resources do not allow us to represent cases in court. In the medium term we would like to build up something here, but for this we need interested lawyers and of course larger budgets.

The aim of the consultation is therefore to provide the legal basis, explain the procedures of law enforcement agencies, compare the case with similar cases and show the types of punishment. Our Shit happens contains the basics for this.

For our members such consultations are free of charge, for non-members we charge 70 francs per hour.
