Last week, Canada became the first ‘major’ nation to legalise the use of recreational cannabis. Now another country has followed suit by making the use medical cannabis. Though it’s considerably smaller than Canada, Luxembourg’s government has passed unanimously the draft law. Under the approved law, those with chronic pain, chemotherapy-related nausea and muscle spasm as a result of multiple sclerosis will be authorized to possess and use cannabis medicines. They will need to receive a prescription from a physician first. The law allows pharmacies located in four hospitals within the 98.6-square-mile European nation to dispense the medicine to qualified patients.
