Luxembourg wants complete control of its cannabis market

Last week, officials in Luxembourg presented a plan to legalise the recreational use of cannabis in the country. The announcement came after Germany’s decision to try a non-profit private club approach to the issue with a decision from mid April.

According to an official statement, the policy proposal in Luxembourg will definitely not come into force during this legislative period, as the Grand Duchy is set to hold parliamentary elections in October.

However, the proposition comes with a very detailed concept for a pilot project, so that the country could try out the supposed effects of cannabis legalisation in a more limited and controlled environment.

The proposition calls for the creation of two state run growers, which should supply a total of 14 distribution points, the only sales outlets in the country. Additionally, according to the pilot project proposition, cannabis should have unique chemical markers so that law enforcement should be able to detect black market cannabis, as imports of the plant will remain prohibited.
