Is it naive to legalize cannabis?

Young & naive

Theme: Presentation of the BZgA drug affinity study With
- Daniela Ludwig (CSU), Member of the Bundestag & Drug Commissioner of the Federal Government
- Dr. Heidrun Thaiss, Head of the Federal Center for Health Education (BZgA)

Naive questions:

25:40 Your study says of 18-25 year olds: 46% stoned vs 21% smoked - with legal drugs the education apparently works better than with illegal ones, right?

27:15 I am referring to the adults, as I said. Precisely because it is about the legalization of marijuana: The education works better with legal drugs. Why are you still in favor of cannabis prohibition? Why not legalize cannabis and then run a better awareness campaign?

37:40 Advertising for cigarettes is still there: in other countries, cigarette packs are one and the same color. Also, you just said that cannabis would be more attractive if it was legal. Isn't cannabis particularly cool because it's illegal?

39:51 Ms. Thaiss, what is the drug affinity like for people over the age of 25?

40:01 Ms. Ludwig, why are you making a straw man argument here? Nobody would say that cannabis is safe. The point here is that an illegal drug is more widespread among adults in the country than smoking, for example. Such a drug is safer than alcohol. And alcohol is legal. Do you think alcohol is more dangerous than cannabis? Or is that not an issue for you because it is culturally so?

41:52 If my questions are not answered and there are answers to fictional questions, then I have a problem with that. Ms. Ludwig, do you think alcohol is more dangerous than cannabis? And do you deal with experiences in other countries? In Portugal and Spain it was decriminalized, in US states it was legalized. In Canada too, where the problem exists on the producer side: They don't get their licenses from the state in time, so that a black market can still flourish. Nobody there gets the idea that cannabis should be made illegal again. What are your still reasons for prohibiting cannabis?
