Luxembourg: No THC limit chosen to deter illicit market trade, explains Justice Minister

After the new law on the private cultivation and consumption of cannabis was passed last Wednesday, our colleagues from RTL spoke to Minister of Justice Sam Tanson about the nitty-gritty details of the new legislation.

The text of the law is clear: it will now be permitted to have four cannabis plants in the home. There are no provisions on the size of the plants or the quantity harvested. While adults in a household can only consume and keep for themselves what they reap from the four plants, there are no limits on either the quantity of cannabis or the THC content.

Minister of Justice Sam Tanson pointed out that each plant is unique, and no one can predict exactly how big it might turn out, how much it might yield, or how strong it might be. To prevent ambiguities during the review, however, and because we are in the field of criminal law where quantities must be precise, four plants was chosen as the limit instead of plant yield, Tanson said.
