Dutch Parliament voted for controlled cultivation.

The Dutch parliament has voted to allow the cultivation of marijuana.

A narrow majority of MPs backed the legislation which will regulate marijuana cultivation under government control.

The vote, by 77 to 72, will allow cannabis cafe owners to buy their product from licensed growers who produce marijuana in a closed system.

What does this mean?

The decision effectively legalises the country’s longstanding policy of tolerance.

Politicians are hoping that introducing licensed marijuana production will remove the grey area between illegal cultivation and licensed cannabis cafes and coffee shops.

Small amounts of of marijuana can be bought here for personal use.

 

When will the bill become law?

It is not sure it will.

Despite support in the lower house of parliament, there is no guarantee the legislation will actually become law.

This is because it does not have majority backing in the upper house of parliament.
