In this episode Paul North, Director of Volteface and guest Alfredo Pascual discuss where Europe is at with regards to recreational cannabis reform and the framing of cannabis policies across the world.
“I’m all for protecting children, but let’s not infantilize adults and say that cannabis users all need government help because cannabis use is inherently a ‘bad habit’. The individual freedom argument is largely missing from the debate.”
As well as a general update on the status of the recreational market in Europe and specifically Germany (where Alfredo is based), they discuss differences between North America and Europe, framing cannabis reform as a public health issue and how stigma and fear can infiltrate reform policies.
