This is an old revision of the document!

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 cell phone). The quick navigation leads to the respective sub-topics of a main topic (here to the latest news from our association, the prosecution and politics). Below you will find all current information from our association Legalize it!

06/30/2021 - Online survey prior to pilots: Product preferences and prices

Product preference and price survey The Universities of Basel and Zurich are conducting an anonymous online survey (duration approx. 3 min.) to find out the preferences of potential study participants. How much do people consume? How much money do they want to spend on THC products? Is hash or weed preferred? What about price expectations?

In order to have better information for the upcoming start of various projects in autumn, it would be good if as many people as possible would indicate their preferences and ideas by means of this survey - this way, offers and prices could correspond to the customer's wishes as much as possible already at the beginning of the projects and would not have to be constantly adjusted at the beginning.
