CGTN Discusses Marijuana Legalization in Germany with Zepp-LaRouche

April 2, 2024 (EIRNS)—The CGTN radio program “World Today” interviewed Helga Zepp-LaRouche to discuss Germany’s legalization of the possession of personal amounts of marijuana. Zepp-LaRouche spoke to the policy-change as a sign of decay of German society. Drug use damages the mind and prevents people from addressing the true crises of the present world. The idea that legalization will dry up the black market is false. Exposing young people to drugs is negative for character formation. And we know that there is a history of the use of drugs by intelligence agencies to control populations—as seen in the devastating Opium Wars against China. The same motives exist today in Germany. The legalization of marijuana in Germany exemplifies a trend in European politics.

The fifth segment that airs Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche begins at minute 45:10 in the program.
