Mayor grants cannabis cultivation to provoke test trial regulation

The mayor of a city in the Dutch province of Limburg decided to grant permission to a cannabis grower to provoke a test trial about regulated cannabis cultivation. The mayor wants to force a breakthrough in the long drawn-out dispute about tolerating cannabis cultivation with the minister of justice, who is totally against the idea.

Earlier this year a large group of Dutch mayors singed a manifest to start regulating cannabis cultivation, so the production and trade is taken out of the hands of organised crime. According to the Limburg mayor it is not the municipality that is cultivating cannabis, but a well selected farm. To him it should be up to the judge to decide if regulated cannabis cultivation should be permitted.
