In Germany the possession of cannabis is illegal. Even small amounts are prosecuted, but charges are usually dropped. The definition of this "small amount" varies depending on the federal state. Most states do not prosecute up to 6 grams. The state of Berlin, being the most liberal, allows 15 grams. However the use and consumption of cannabis is not forbidden in Berlin, it’s actually one of the most liberal cities in the world regarding cannabis. Germany's number one open illegal market to buy cannabis in public is Görlitzer Park, affectionately known as "Gorli" by the locals.
