luxembourg cannabisLuxembourg is likely to run into trouble with its neighbours if it sticks by its plan to legalise cannabis - a policy that remains unthinkable particularly in France and Germany. The country's new coalition government, formed last year, has pledged to legalise cannabis in the five years it is scheduled to stay in power. How and when this will happen, remains to be seen. But the Grand-Duchy's big neighbours Germany and France are unhappy anyway, fearing legal pot in Luxembourg could cause trouble back home. If Luxembourg follows up on its plan to legalise cannabis, every adult in Luxembourg will be allowed to cultivate, buy, possess and consume cannabis for personal use.
