Luxembourg Legalize Recreational Cannabis, But Without Sales

Luxembourg has passed a law that legalizes the home cultivation of marijuana and largely decriminalizes the drug, but the legislation does not permit sales. The new law allows residents to grow up to four plants per household, provided they are not visible from the road. It also permits consumers to possess up to 3 grams of marijuana outside their residence. However, exceeding this limit or consuming recreational marijuana products outside a residence could result in fines of up to 500 euros ($480).

In passing the bill, Minister of Justice Sam Tanson labeled prohibition as “an absolute failure,” advocating for a different approach. This move by Luxembourg mirrors a similar law passed in Malta in 2021, which also does not allow for a commercial market. Despite the progress, the bill is a scaled-back version of the nation’s original plans for cannabis legalization.

While this is a significant step towards ending prohibition, Luxembourg joins a list of countries that have announced ambitious adult-use cannabis plans, only to present significantly scaled-back legislation or fall short. For instance, last week, Colombia failed to approve a legal framework to regulate recreational marijuana sales, and in April, the Germany backpedaled on its promise to implement nationwide legalization.
