luxembourg cannabisWhile legalisation of recreational cannabis in Luxembourg is one of the current coalition's flagship projects, updates on its progress have been rather sparse. Answering a parliamentary question about the progress of the project, Minister of Health Paulette Lenert responded that the government was currently working on a regulatory framework that would protect people who come into contact with cannabis while keeping them away from the black market by making it "less appealing". Lenert, who was very vague in her statements, confirmed that work on the cannabis legalisation project is still ongoing. She did say that "intensive" exchanges between the different ministries had taken place and that the project had been "completed" and "optimised".
