Abstract

Zusammenfassung Der vorliegende Beitrag fasst die Argumente für eine Legalisierung von Cannabis zusammen und macht Vorschläge zur Ausgestaltung des Regulierungsrahmens. Hauptargument für eine regulierte Cannabisfreigabe sind nicht die zu erwartenden Steuereinnahmen oder die entstehenden legalen Arbeitsplätze, sondern der verbesserte Jugend- und Gesundheitsschutz in einem staatlich regulierten Cannabismarkt. Während es bei legalen Suchtmitteln wie Tabak und Alkohol erfolgreich gelingt, den Konsum immer weiter einzudämmen, nimmt der Cannabiskonsum trotz Prohibition seit Jahren zu. Entscheidend für einen effektiven Jugend- und Gesundheitsschutz ist eine wohl durchdachte Marktordnung mit sachgerechter Marktregulierung und Besteuerung.
