Luxembourg: New cannabis legislation hoped to be passed before the Chamber elections

Minister of Health Paulette Lenert recently showed herself confident that a concept for the legalization of cannabis in Luxembourg will soon be presented to the government.

According to Minister Lenert, the government council will soon receive details from the pilot project on cannabis legalization. The state-controlled sale of cannabis is expected to be permitted in the context of an "experiment," similar to the way in which Germany plans on legalizing it. Minister Lenert explained that this pathway ensures that no international laws are violated.

She is confident that, at the very least, a concept will be ready for presentation in the near future. The purpose of the undertaking is to show that a different handling of cannabis can lead to better results than the current policies of repression, which the Minister believes are yet to bear fruit.

Still, the Minister was unwilling to indicate whether the respective draft law will be filed before the elections later this year.
