Today, Berlin is all united in seeking the legalization of commercial sale this amazing entertainment weeds. It is apparent that taking a step ahead for Berlin is essential, reports Marijuana.com.

The new policy means no fears and no hidden offering of cannabis. The public will be rejoicing marijuana intake in nerve relaxed gatherings at coffee shops.

The commercial sale of cannabis is a scientifically supported model project but the sales will be limited to adults and will follow its legal framework. Wide use of marijuana seems possible in regard of treating pain in the patients.  

With the cannabis coffee shop pilot program, the municipal advertising places will not allow advertisement of alcohol and tobacco. This is to revise non-smoking legislation for protecting kids and youth.

The future is bright for cannabis in Germany.  The monitored coffee chop pilot program license are getting issued in near future and it is estimated that till year 2018 and 2019 there will be state-controlled cannabis coffee shops in Bremen and Berlin.
