Cannabis that contains more than 1.0% THC is classified as an illegal drug in Switzerland. Several cantons began to allow adults to cultivate and use cannabis in 2012, but this was struck down by federal courts. Since 28 September 2012, the possession of less than 10 grams of cannabis is no longer a criminal infringement, but is still punished by a 100 Swiss francs flat fine. Professional cannabis trade, as well as the possession of a quantity of cannabis that can affect the health of a large number of people (4 kg of hashish, according to the Federal Court), are punished by one to three years of imprisonment that can be augmented with a fine.

The number of cannabis users in Switzerland is estimated to be around 500,000 among a population of 8 million. 

Results from the national referendum in November 2008 showed 36.7% of those voting supported legalizing cannabis.

In 2016 the cities of Zurich, Basel, Bern, and Geneva stated that they planned to establish pilot cannabis clubs to gauge their utility, limited to 2,000 members total and to be studied for four years.
