Luxembourg: "Adult-use cannabis laws are coming"

Paulette Lenert, Minister of Health, told radio station 100.7 that the bill concerning adult-use cannabis should arrive in the Chamber of Deputies by the end of March. But it is not certain that it can be voted on during the legislature before the October elections. The health crisis has delayed the dossier because it has "mobilized all resources." The plan calls for allowing four cannabis plants for home cultivation, which is "less legislatively complex than full legalization."

The plants cannot be visible from the street, and smoking cannabis in the public space will remain prohibited. In addition, "the law remains in place, of course," said the Minister of Justice last June, "except for the transport of cannabis on the public highway. You will be able to have up to three grams on you without being prosecuted."

But if you get caught taking 2.5 grams of cannabis from the garden to a party, for example, "you still risk a warning tax of 145 euros," warns Sam Tanson. This fine will be doubled if you don't pay it right away, or even prosecuted in the police court if you don't pay it on time. Penalties are also foreseen if you plant more than four feet or if you garden in the wrong place.
