Cannabis social club Malta

Malta is the first European country to completely legalize both the cultivation and possession of cannabis for personal use and to provide for the opening of Cannabis Social Clubs Malta. The cannabis social clubs are regularly registered and declared non-profit associations. They are made up of adult cannabis consumers who, for medical or recreational purposes, organize themselves in the production of the same to satisfy their personal consumption, thus removing cannabis from the street black market while protecting responsible consumption prohibited for minors.

Inside the clubs it will be possible to consume marijuana legally, and you will also meet and be able to interact with experts in the sector or simply with people who share your same interests.

What the new Maltese law says

The law promulgated at the end of 2021 provides very interesting aspects regarding the possession and consumption of cannabis, the main ones being:

  • It will be possible to grow up to 4 cannabis plants per person and personal possession in a public place will be allowed up to 7 grams, without incurring any sanctions.
  • However, anyone found with a greater quantity of between 7 and 28 grams will not be subject to a criminal sanction but will be subjected to a sanction with fines of between 50 and 100 euros.
  • Consumption in public and in front of minors is also sanctioned.

The new law also provides for the implementation of a social cultivation and distribution system, through the opening of cannabis social clubs Malta; these associations will be made up of a maximum number of 500 members, each of whom will be entitled to a personal daily quantity not exceeding 7 grams for a maximum of 50 grams per month.

Social clubs are starting on the model of the Spanish ones

Born in Spain within the framework of the law, but also present in other European countries such as Belgium, cannabis social clubs have been made legal in Uruguay and hypothesized in some US legislation; with the new law approved in Malta it will be the first time that a non-commercial system will be tested as the only place of legal distribution of cannabis. All this in the cannabis social clubs Malta.

The social route to legal cannabis proposed by the new Maltese law is very interesting because it creates a non-profit alternative to the legal market, thus depriving it of the risks linked to the excessive commercialization of a substance. It also allows you to build real social and cultural networks that encourage the sharing of experiences, thus providing better awareness of its uses and effects. The cannabis reform also hits European shores.

Starting from the small island in the heart of the Mediterranean with its brand new cannabis social clubs Malta, the approval of a similar regulation is also awaited in Luxembourg but above all in Germany. The German decision to quickly arrive at legal regulation of cannabis is still recent news. If this were to actually happen, the wave of the new Maltese law would risk becoming a real tsunami at a European level, implying profound changes at a social, cultural, political and even economic level.
