The sale of cannabis peaked in Belgium

From 2012 to 2014, the number of cannabis possession charges increased from 21,000 to 30,000 in the country, an increase that exceeds 40%. In ten years, the number of established events was doubled.

This is what was indicated Friday the Last Hour.

Meanwhile, the number of cannabis sales made increased from about 4,000 to 5,000, in two years (+ 20%). These figures relate mainly to marijuana and not cannabis resin. These developments are largely due to the activity of the police in Antwerp, Brussels and Liege with cumulative sales and possession made up a strong increase of 45%.

This is a "historic high" according to Michel Bruneau, the Commissioner for Federal police narcotics section.
