Cannabis for medical use has been made legal in Luxembourg. The government unanimously passed the draft law to decriminalise the use of cannabis for patients suffering from diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis or neurodegenerative diseases. Under the draft law, all general practitioners who have undertaken specific training will be able to prescribe the drug. This came as a result of an opinion submitted by the Council of State which overturned the initial draft of the text allowing only specialised medical professionals such as oncologists or neurologists. Luxembourg will use cannabis coming from Canada. (See also: Luxembourg is latest EU country to legalise medical cannabis)
