Our interest: THC

Many people use THC-containing products as medicines or stimulants. But hash and weed are still illegal. That is why THC-users face a variety of problems. We from the association Legalize it! help people who use THC products with legal questions. For this purpose we offer personal consultations and written information.

We follow the political development about hemp in Switzerland and publish our assessments. Ultimately, we want to achieve the complete legalization of hemp - even if the road there will still be long.

You can reach our main topics via the six points in the navigation at the top of the page (or in the hamburger menu on your mobile phone). The quick navigation leads to the respective sub-topics of a main topic (here to the latest news from our club, prosecution and politics). Below you will find all current information from our association Legalize it!
