Germany partly decriminalised the use of marijuana

Germany has partly decriminalised the use of marijuana. Under the new rules, which came into force on 1 April, over 18s can possess up to 25g of cannabis in public, and adults can grow up to three plants per household. But people will not be allowed to smoke cannabis within sight of schools, sports centres or in "pedestrian zones" between 7:00 and 20:00. Supporters of the law-change say it will help kill the black market and improve quality control, while police unions are warning of real-world harm.
