Marijuana legalization law in Luxembourg
Added on 21 July 2023
Earlier in the week, the Ministry of Justice had published a statement about the policy change in the Official Journal—a procedural step that meant the legislation would come into force in four days.
This comes about a month after Luxembourg’s Parliament passed a legalization bill, making it the second country in the European Union to end cannabis prohibition following Malta’s vote to legalize in 2021.
The law in Luxembourg, which was first proposed by the ministers of justice and homeland security in 2021, allows adults to possess up to three grams of cannabis and grow up to four plants in a secure location within their private residence.
