Luxembourg gets high and gets well

Luxembourg has joined other European countries in passing a bill on 29th June 2018 for legalised medical use of marijuana.

 The Health Minister Lydia Mutsch said the she is “pleased that the House has agreed with the bill to legalise access to cannabis for medical purposes. "The medical use of cannabis is an important step in our efforts to reduce the pain and suffering of some patients, where usual treatments do not allow it”.

Other European countries with legalised medical weed are Germany, Finland, Czechia, and Netherlands, amongst others. Canada has also recently legalised recreational weed, on a federal level, meaning local municipalities can not fight against this decision.
