Weed Like to Talk is a European Citizens' Initiative – a law proposal drafted by citizens – in order to legalise the use of cannabis in Europe.
Together, we have 50 days to collect another 800 000 signatures. With your help we can make it !
If this law proposal collects one million signatures, it shall be reviewed by the European Commission and may be voted by the European Parliament.
We need your help to finance our campaign so as to collect one million signatures. We have already colleted more than 160 000 signatures but a campaign throughout several European countries is costly.
To talk about cannabis is to talk about the forbidden
Despite cannabis prohibition in Europe, 77 million Europeans declare having already consumed cannabis during their lives. Among this number, 9 million young adults (15-34 years) declare having consumed cannabis during this past month. These citizens are reaching out to the only suppliers, the underground networks, and are thus sustaining a black market, with all the harmful consequences it has on the economy, human lives and more. Today, this market is entirely neglected by the public authorities.
Weed Like to Talk proposes to legalise the consumption, production, and selling of cannabis, and to start a global reflection on drugs in Europe.
Today, cannabis regulation is very heterogeneous throughout Europe. Some countries tolerate certain forms of possession or consumption, others have created amendments or administrative sanctions and others still apply penal sanctions. It is worth asking whether these mixed political approaches are really effective when it comes to social justice and public health.
The legalisation of cannabis is a very sensitive, polemic and controversial issue. It is a topic of many fears and prejudices, source to great divides in the public debate. So what is more democratic than debating and committing to make the choice that takes into consideration the opinion and daily life of the majority?
To support Weed Like to Talk is to show that another Europe is possible, a Europe that can make simple and daring political choices by listening to its citizens.
