Luxembourg's new government coalition will not follow through on the initial plan to legalize cannabis. The alliance made up of the Popular Christian Social Party (CSV) and the Democratic Party decided to maintain the first “light” part of legalization, with the decriminalization of cannabis consumption and the regulation of self-cultivation for adults, but full legalization of the production and sale of cannabis will not move forward.
A two-part legalization
The first phase of legalization, focused on decriminalizing public possession and allowing home cultivation of cannabis, was successfully approved this year . Luxembourgers are now allowed to possess up to three grams of cannabis in public, and each household can grow up to four plants for personal use.
