In December 2020, the US House of Representatives adopted its law on the opportunity of a legal cannabis market, on the reinvestment of the profits of this future market, and on the erasure of criminal records related to cannabis (Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement Act, MORE Act).

This bill, which decriminalizes cannabis, and therefore legalizes all its uses, including recreational uses, includes a whole series of regulations concerning the various economic, legal and social aspects.

Cannabis-related public policy developments have accelerated significantly since 2012, with the first moves to legalize the sale of cannabis for “recreational” use in the United States – in the very country that launched the “War on Drugs”. in 1971 – before Uruguay and Canada. After several decades of prohibition, in June 2019, 2/3 of American states had legalized the medical use of cannabis and 1 in 5 authorized its recreational use.
With tax revenues of hundreds of millions of dollars per year in some states ($266 million in Colorado and $367 in Washington State), the nature of the issue of cannabis legalization has changed. It is now more of a financial and industrial issue than a political and diplomatic one. The opening of the legal cannabis market in California in 2018, in an economy 50 times larger than that of Colorado, brought about a new change of scale.

In 2022, the international context makes France’s repressive position on cannabis increasingly anachronistic.

On the European level, this year, Malta became the first country in Europe to completely legalize the consumption of cannabis. The European Commission is pressuring the French government to liberalize the sale of CBD on French territory.
Internationally, the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) has approved the declassification of cannabis from the category of drug, within the meaning of international law, recognizing its medical usefulness.
The National Assembly rejects a project to legalize recreational cannabis
The legalization of recreational cannabis is still a long way off. 2022 may not yet be the year THC is legalized. The last report of the parliamentary fact-finding mission on cannabis was however unequivocal concerning the ineffectiveness of the repressive action of the public authorities and the urgency of protecting the health of the youngest consumers.

He advocated stopping the completely repressive policy conducted until then by France and forcefully reaffirmed by the President and members of the government, despite a process of decriminalization initiated with the fines that now punish cannabis users.

However, the National Assembly has positioned itself against the bill of La France Insoumise, also supported by members of the majority, such as Caroline Janvier, LREM deputy. The text planned to authorize “the production, manufacture, transport, import, export, possession, offer, transfer, acquisition or use relating to cannabis and cannabis products. cannabis whose tetrahydrocannabinol content does not exceed a level set by order of the Minister responsible for health. “.
