From tomorrow onwards the laws on drugs in Germany have become a lot stricter.
The use of opium, cocaine and Arabic tobacco has gotten out of hand and situations similar to the infamous opium houses in the East are now familiar in our own big cities.
Although most opiates were already only availabe with a doctors prescription there is also a huge black market and the use of several drugs is very popular amongst almost all layers of the population.
This will now have to end.
You will now need a doctors prescription for all the drugs mentioned below but those who use or sell them without risk a harsh punishment, such as a hefty fine or even jail time.
The police will also start looking for opium dens and clubs and bars where drugs are often used in public, and close these down.
Now in detail the new law;
Opiumgesetzes vom 10. Dezember 1929
(RGBl. I S. 215) listet § 1 Abs. 1
From the 10th of december onwards it will be illegal to buy, sell, own or use the following products:
Kokablätter (cacao leaves)
Indischer Hanf (indian hemp)
Kokains und Ekgonins.
Some of these products may still be obtained at the Apotheke (pharmacy) trough a prescription from your doctor.
If you break the law you can be fined and even jailed.
Approximate fines and punishments;
-Being caught buying them can get you fined 150L$
-Selling these products can get you fined 500L$
-Owning one of the aboce substances can get you fined 250L$
-Being caught using, or having used them recently, can get you arrested for at least one night in the cell.
