Dutch Cannabis Social Club Applies for Legal Cannabis Cultivation
Author: Michael Knodt 17/07/2017 - 16:30:00

The Tree of Life, Amsterdam’s first and only cannabis social club, recently filed a request for an exemption from the Dutch Opium Act to the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport. The club applied to grow cannabis for scientific research purposes. The association of recreational and medical users believes this can be accomplished in compliance with the Opium Act because the law states that the production of narcotics can be allowed for “medical and scientific purposes.” 

“We want to study the needs of users as they know the composition of cannabis due to it is being listed and labeled,” club president Rosaria Ricci told the Dutch media. “The research is aimed to document the health of its (the club’s) members. We are also curious about the effects of controlled cultivation.” 

“Those terms are not defined,” said the club’s legal adviser, Kaj Hollemans. “There is room for interpretation.”
