The most romantic of Europeans still criminalize Cannabis. Yes, believe it or not, France has some of the harshest cannabis laws in Europe. These guys declared Cannabis illegal in 1970!
Weird, right? Pretty much every stoner has a French friend or knows a French guy who got so high that he never got to pronounce his last name correctly. France has the highest reported use of Cannabis in Europe, according to Statista; just over 11% of the French population said they had used Cannabis over the previous year, which is the highest of any European country!
Hopefully, things might get better. According to this Forbes article, now that the political stance seems to have softened, and shops have opened up selling a specific type of legal Cannabis. No THC yet, though.
Anyway, here is a hit for my fellow French stoners. I will vape it on your honour.
