Fall 2015

Legal Aid Brochure Shit happens The 9th edition of our legal aid brochure Shit happens turned two years old a few weeks ago. When it was published, we did not yet know, for example, how the fines in practice would be handled. In the course of time, we have been able to find many answers to what were then still open questions and unfortunately there was also a new wave of repression. wave of repression (seed persecution).
To get a complete picture of the legal situation situation, we have compiled the new findings little by little in three supplements in three supplements: The open questions (E1, Aug. 14), the Repression Overview (E2, Feb. 15) and the police interview (E3, Aug. 15).
Thus, the most important information on the legal situation of THC in Switzerland besides the publication in the wiki is also available offline.
Next year we want to publish the 10th edition (20-year anniversary).


16.10.2015 => Autumn break until 30 October

Half of our fall break is already over. During this time there will be no Friday meetings and we are most likely to be reachable by mail to reach us. The office is irregularly occupied: next week e.g. on Mon, 19. and Tue, 20. October; the following week except Monday we will be back to normal (Tue & Thu/Fri afternoons).
In addition to the end of the quarter, we will also be doing some catching up during this time and preparing for November, where we will then hope for the success of our biggest advertising campaign to date.

At October 30 we start with a members' meeting into the last part of the year. You are cordially invited to support us - be it with a donation, a membership or your assistance. We wish you all a beautiful autumn season!


04.10.2015 - Third amendment to Shit happens: The police interrogation

The police interrogation We recently published our third supplement to Shit happens 9 online (PDF). This gives an overview of the police interrogation. The information comes from the numerous consultations on Seed Tracking, which our secretary has conducted this year from the spring.
It quickly became clear that there was no such thing as a standard procedure in Switzerland nicht There is no such thing as a standard procedure in Switzerland - the approach varies from canton to canton or district to district. Even for interrogation itself, it is not possible to simply propose an “optimal” procedure, as the approach of the police can vary greatly from case to case.
Those who deal with the topic quickly come to the conclusion that each case must be considered on its own merits and the approach must be tailored to the persons involved and the facts at hand.


24.09.2015 - Hemp-friendly into parliament!

Hemp-friendly into the parliament! The voting documents have now arrived. To be able to vote in the next few years on the issue of THC in parliament we need people who not only have a positive attitude towards the topic, but also consider it important. But how do we choose these hemp-friendly choose?
A guide you can find in the Legalize it! No. 71 on page 7. There it is described how to vote via smartvote.ch to a listing of candidates where one can at least hope that they will advance the issue in the councils. This is no guarantee for anything: without pressure or initiative from the people, repression will be ;-) from the people, the repression will continue unchecked. Let's legalize!


17.09.2015 - Another update to the hemp seed prosecution

The hemp seed prosecution in new dimensions We have expanded our site hemp seed prosecution with further judgments and added some special documents. Furthermore our overview of the police interrogation (which our members have received at the beginning of August) and two different personal experience reports show the range of experiences.

The page now documents with many details the hemp seed prosecution in spring/summer 2015, for that it is meanwhile very long. But before we finally revise it (and if necessary generate several pages from it), we would like to receive and include any further information. Here again the call: Whoever would like to publish documents about the hemp seed prosecution would like to publish, please contact.

19.06.2015 - Update: New dimension of the hemp seed prosecution

The hemp seed prosecution in new dimensions We have expanded our site hemp seed prosecution with the first judgments It is just sad what these people have to endure for a few hemp seeds!

What an order of some hemp seeds in Holland can lead to is shown in our report: The hemp seed prosecution in new dimensions.
At the customs enormous quantities of ordered hemp seeds fished out. Such an order is now really not a good idea (more)! Most of those concerned are, also because of only three hemp seeds, police summoned, but with many directly one house search made. That is already from an order of 10 hemp seeds happen.


06.06.2015 - Magazine Legalize it! No. 70 is shipped & No. 69 online

Spring 2015

10.04.2015 - What the media are talking about...

Some media outlets have reported on the hemp conviction figures 2014 reported, unfortunately quite wrong. Here is a small overview of how the numbers have really developed. The details and graphs will follow in our Legalize it! 70. There you will also find further information about the limitations of the statistics of the BfS. The figures cannot be compared with each other in absolute terms; they can only be used as an approximate order of magnitude.

Categories Crimes 2014 Crimes 2013 Defendants 2014 Defendants 2013
Consumption (violation) 20'923 29'589 17'981 25'132
Cultivation/manufacture (violation) 458 361 451 349
Possession/securing (violation) 13'163 21'058 10'345 17'196
Total reprimands 34'544 51'008 28'777 42'677
fines (Transgression) 14'861 2'198 1) 14'861 2'198 2)
Total repression (transgressions) 49'405 53'206 43'638 44'875

Ultimately, the scope of the repression against hemp consumption and the preparatory actions required for this decreased somewhat in 2014. But in essence, just as before 40'000 people prosecuted every year, who are 50'000 transgressions are accused of. The replacement of a portion of the reprimands by fines however, is certainly a relief for those affected. But even if there were just under 15'000 fines of 100 francs, the number of those fined is twice as high, at around 30,000.'000 (and the costs for those affected are still between 250 and 750 francs).


04.04.2015 - News of the last weeks

The many positive reports could lead to the assumption that “it” will soon become legal. Unfortunately, the last two decades have shown that everything firstly takes much longer and secondly than was assumed. There were in the middle of the nineties and also after 2k every now and then glimmers of hope, but a lot of things were stopped early or failed later at the ballot box.
If there were ever any pilot projects projects, this has to do with a legalization almost nothing to do with legalization. Just like that, there will certainly be no major liberalization for that, many more people would have to do much more: network, collect money, put out information, exert pressure - let's legalize it!
