A visit to Trekt Uw Plant in Antwerp
What was originally a small group of friends, has become a feasible alternative to the cannabis black market in the north of Belgium. Our guest author guides us through Antwerp’s cannabis social club. Belgium legalised the possession and use of small amounts of cannabis for personal use a decade ago. Since that time, smokers can not only carry up to 3 grams in public but can also legally grow one plant per person at home.
The cannabis social club is a feasible alternative tobuying weed illegally on the street, or visiting coffeeshops across theborder in the Netherlands. It has the potential to cut a chunk out ofthe black market and reduce crime rates, while promoting a more humaneapproach towards cannabis smokers.
