Luxembourg will legalize the cultivation and consumption of cannabis at home.

The Luxembourg government has announced changes to cannabis legislation, with plans to legalize the cultivation and consumption of the drug at home.
As part of a package of measures aimed at combating drug-related crime in this country of 640,000 inhabitants, adults will be able to cultivate up to four cannabis plants per household, for their personal use.
The government will also allow cannabis seeds to be sold in stores, as well as imported from abroad or purchased online.
It will also seek to allow domestic production of seeds for commercial purposes.
Consumption and cultivation will only be permitted "within its four walls", although transporting or consuming up to three grams will no longer be considered a criminal offense, but a misdemeanor.
Leaders of the Greens - one of three government coalition partners along with the Democratic Party and the Socialist Workers' Party - said the move "represents a fundamental reorientation of Luxembourg's drugs policy", with the government keen to tackle drug-related crime with a more "holistic" approach.
“The war on cannabis has failed,” the party said in a statement Friday.
"The announcements by the Minister of Justice, Sam Tanson, represent a fundamental reorientation of Luxembourg's drug policy. Cannabis consumption is finally regulated and a legal alternative to the black market is created."
The Greens added that the main objectives of the new cannabis legislation would be to exempt from penalties the production, purchase and consumption of a given quantity of cannabis, to keep consumers away from the black market, to reduce mental and physical dangers associated with it and to combat acquisitive crime.
