Luxembourg’s Government triples medical cannabis budget for 2020

While Luxembourg is a tiny country in the middle of Europe, it is beginning to play an outsized role in pushing all aspects of the cannabis discussion forward in the EU.

The country has steadily moved forward on integrating cannabis into the medical system. In 2018, medical cannabis was tested in a pilot project and is now available, on prescription, from a limited number of hospital pharmacies since February of this year. The program, at least from the Department of Health’s perspective, has been “very successful” so far in the words of Health Minister Etienne Schneier.

The small South American nation of Uruguay was the first to legalize marijuana for adults. New Zealand, Luxembourg and Mexico are among those that have looked to Canada for guidance or lessons, while Russia has chastised it for its “barefaced” flouting of international anti-drug treaties.

Luxembourg is latest European country to legalize medical cannabis

Luxembourg lawmakers have unanimously supported a bill to legalise medical cannabis.

The law, passed on June 28, allows cannabis to be prescribed and used for patients who suffer from chronic pain, nausea relating to chemotherapy, or muscle spasm resulting from multiple sclerosis. The original draft of the bill stated that only specialists could prescribe the drug, but the final version passed allows any general practitioner to prescribe cannabis if they have undertaken relevant training.

Legalise cannabis in Luxembourg?

Luxembourg's Parliament is to debate the decriminalisation of cannabis, the health minister said while outlining a new drug prevention programme. 

On Monday, Lydia Mutsch explained that drug use in Luxembourg has steadily increased from 2009 to 2014. 

Among new measures proposed to curb its rise, the minister said that a broad debate in Parliament would take place to consider decriminalising the consumption of cannabis. 

Smoking hashish has repeatedly raised safety questions but there remains a large number of voices in favour of relaxing the law on its consumption.
