Paris council members proposed to make the capital an experimental territory for the legalization of cannabis
And if we could smoke joints legally in Paris? It's here proposal of the Radical group of Left Center and Independents (RGCVI) on the Paris council. Its president, Laurence Goldgrab, wishes that the capital becomes "a territory of experimentation of the legalization of the recreational cannabis for the adults taking care of its strict supervision"It has for objective"to challenge the state and show that at the local level, we are ready".
Validation by the Economic Analysis Council
This proposal comes after the publication by Nouvel Obs (19 June 2019) of a forum calling for the legalization of cannabis, signed by doctors, local elected officials, and economists eager to make things happen. A report by the Conseil d'Analyze Economique (CAE), which comes under the authority of the Prime Minister, calls for the legalization of cannabis in France, with economic benefits that could exceed 2 billion euros in tax revenue for the state.
Currently, French politics is one of the most repressive in Europe, for the results we know: exploding consumption (first European consumers), especially among minors (1 in 2 children has already smoked cannabis and 10% are regular consumers, according to the French Drug Observatory) and addictions) and huge economic spending on repression rather than prevention.

Mindsets evolve and cannabis will soon have the same status as tobacco or alcohol"assures the mayor of the IInd.
The decision belongs to the State
This is not the opinion of Goeffroy Boulard, mayor of the XVII LR denounces "a very bad signal sent to young people because drugs are devastating for teenagers" as well as a "demagogic communication in the run-up to the municipal electionsFinally, it's up to the state that the decision will come backbecause even if the bill was passed, this subject is within the jurisdiction of the government, and it is he and only he who will introduce (or not) this experimentation.
Here’s what you want to know before seeing your local medical dispensary:You will need a physician’s recommendation, medical cannabis certification, or whatever appropriate documentation is needed by your condition. Ordinarily, you must be 18 or older to be eligible for a medical consent, but exceptions may be made in some conditions for minors with particularly debilitating conditions. You will usually register with a medicinal dispensary. This is to keep your medical cannabis recommendation or certificate on file for legal and regulatory purposes. There will be a waiting space. This will be to control the flow of patients and product, but a simple dividing wall gives patients privacy and direct one-on-one contact using a budtender to discuss medical issues. Many times, but not always, your purchases will be monitored by medical dispensaries. This procedure can assist budtenders and patients monitor effective medication as well as have a living record of producers and products for future reference and follow-up. Medicinal dispensaries usually allow you to smell and examine the buds before purchase. This may differ from state-to-state.
