After the new cannabis law was published in the 'Official Journal', Luxembourg's gazette, on Tuesday, the law is set to come into force on Friday 21 July 2023.

The Ministry of Justice published a statement (FR) on Tuesday announcing that the legalisation of private cannabis cultivation and consumption was officially included in Luxembourg's gazette. This means that the law will come into force on Friday 21 July this year, four days after the text was published.

Adults will thus be allowed to grow up to four cannabis plants per household. Consumption and transportation of cannabis outside of one's home remain prohibited, as do private sales.

The law also stipulates new and reduced penalties for violations.
