Hanfparade Berlin 2021
Hanfparade – Demonstration for the Legalization of Cannabis. “Hanf” is German for “hemp.” The Hanfparade is a German-wide pro-Cannabis march in Germany. Every year in August, we gather to Legalize Cannabis as a resource, medicine, and recreational drug. There were 10.000 to 13.000 participants from all over Germany and the world at the Hanfparade last year. We want to top it this year so: tell your friends, bring your friends! Berlin, Germany; Aug 14, 2021
Hanfparade (“Hemp Parade”) is the largest and most traditional march for Cannabis as medicine, natural resource, and recreational drug in Germany.
It has been held annually in Berlin since 1997. More than 8900 people participated in the last hemp parade on August 8, 2020.
Hanfparade will take place on Saturday, August 14, 2021, in Berlin. It starts at 12 o’clock.
“50 years of prohibition – time for emancipation” is the motto of the 25th Hemp Parade on August 14, 2021.
Both for cannabis as raw material, cannabis as a recreational drug, and cannabis as medicine, there is a clear deficit of information in the population. We want to effectively counteract this by focusing on education in various areas this year.
What we want
To make the plant hemp known and interesting again in the full breadth of its usefulness and reduce prejudice and stigmatization. Come to the hemp demo and show the public what is possible with hemp!
Promote hemp as a useful plant
Hemp still suffers from the stigma of being perceived as a “drug plant.” Despite a wide range of promising uses, such as clothing, building material, or food, hemp is still mostly associated with the backward misinformation of supposed educational campaigns. The hemp parade countered this with a large commercial hemp area and a hemp mile with information booths, where the full product range of this diverse plant was presented. So come to the demo for legalization and inform yourself, inform others!
Facilitate access to cannabis medicine
Even though health insurance in Germany is supposed to cover the costs for medical cannabis from 2017 on, it remains a time and effort-consuming act for those in need to get cannabis medicine. We demand a massive reduction of bureaucracy and the right to grow your own medical hemp! Come to the hemp parade and exchange ideas with doctors and patients!
Legalize cannabis as a recreational drug
Cannabis consumption poses fewer risks to the individual and society than legal drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. Regardless of this, the current ruling policy holds on to the prohibition of hemp by the narcotics law. Allegedly for the protection of health. However, this protection is suspended by the lack of controls, and extenders or other impurities harm consumers. Therefore, one goal of the Hemp Parade is to show as many people as possible that the prohibition has worse consequences than coming from the consumption itself. Furthermore, effective youth protection can only be implemented through a regulated market. So come to the hemp parade for responsible use!
