Hanfparade 2016: Legalization is in the air

"Hanf" is German for "hemp"

Flyer of Hanfparade 2016 in Berlin, 13th of August 2016 The Hanfparade is the traditional and german-wide pro-Cannabis march in Germany. Every year in August we gather for the legalisation of Cannabis as resource, medicine and recreational drug.

There were 10.000 to 13.000 participants from all over Germany and the world to the Hanfparade in last year.

The motto in 2016 was "Legalization is in the air!" (Legalisierung liegt in der Luft!) We met at 13th of August 2016, 1pm @ Central Train Station

"Washington DC smells of pot and no one cares" is the title of news from the US. This should be Germany too! Hemp - Cannabis - Marijuana - Hanf (German for Hemp) was always in the society. The principle of prohibition is the experiment which began more than 55 years ago. The normal state is usage of Cannabis in all its forms. Cannabis is a natural and renewable source for feed and food, housing, medicine and energy. All this the society needs - and Cannabis can deliver!

Hanfparade is a march and a movement to push ideas on how the legalisation of Cannabis can be done. We fight for the human right to use Cannabis as resouce, medicine and recreational drug.
