Heinz Siegenthaler had already tried in 2018 in business 18.3150 to treat cannabis the same as high-proof alcohol. This business was written off in June 2020 because it was not conclusively dealt with in the Council within two years. Compared to the 2018 business, however, the current business has a much better chance with 40 co-signers.
