Repression vintage 2007

The summer joys are marred every year by a sad statistic: once again, a vintage of police repression against THC has been put into figures. The number of convictions for consumption decreased in 2007, but still reached more than 30,000 convictions.

Arrests for use of THC products in 2007

In 2007, there were 24,645 convictions for consumption of weed, 5,505 convictions for hashish consumption, 624 for hemp plant consumption, and 44 for oil ingestion. Total: 30,818 convictions for consumption (34,138 convictions were counted in 2006). The two graphs show the development of hashish and weed consumption convictions over the last ten years. These two categories account for the lion's share of consumption convictions (oil and hemp plant consumption are marginal).
