France: France To Soften Cannabis Laws -- But Not Legalize

Europe (MAP) - Tue, 01/30/2018 - 08:00
The Daily Tribune, 25 Jan 2018 - Paris, France -- France's fight against cannabis, through tough laws to punish users, has long been a failure -- the French remain among Europe's biggest dope smokers. So will a change of strategy under President Emmanuel Macron have more success? The new centrist government is preparing to soften legislation, making users caught with cannabis liable for an instant fine of 150-200 euros ($180-250) instead of prosecution and the threat of a one-year jail term.
