Luxembourg: The Health and Justice ministries have published a proposal for the introduction of a recreational cannabis pilot programme. However, ministers have said the bill will not come under consideration in this legislative period, as it will be presented first to the European Commission. The proposal is for 14 publicly-owned sales points around the country and for consumers to be allowed to purchase up to 5 g of cannabis per day, up to a maximum of 30 g a month. The government and its licensees would be responsible for cannabis production, and prices would be set by the government.

Luxembourg: Health minister Paulette Lenert and minister of justice Sam Tanson have announced a government plan to present a bill next year to allow the domestic cultivation of both medical and recreational cannabis, press reports. Medical cannabis is already legal in Luxembourg, but the Grand Duchy has so far relied on imports. The ministers said that once the current bill to allow home cultivation of non-medical cannabis is approved, the next steps would be introduced to the Chamber of Deputies, which would necessarily include the regulation of licensing and sales of recreational cannabis.
