luxembourg cannabisRadio 100,7 reported that the government has apparently decided that the sale of recreational cannabis will remain illegal in the Grand Duchy. Only the cultivation of cannabis plants for private consumption is to be legalised. Meanwhile, medicinal cannabis has been legal in Luxembourg since February 2019. However, since then, there have been frequent issues with the supply chain. Minister of Health Paulette Lenert confirmed that there are "a number of legal obstacles" in the European context that would render a legalisation significantly more difficult.
