I was quoted by Marijuana Business Daily on the issue of cannabis legalisation in Luxembourg, which was recently announced by the new government. Click down below to read the full quote, or find it on their website.
“If the reform allows for sales to nonresidents, the impact would be massive,” Bill Wirtz, a Luxembourgian and policy analyst for the Consumer Choice Center, told Marijuana Business Daily.
“It would be great news for consumers and the beginning of a new era of drug policy in the EU.”
He noted that the country has a relatively small local consumer market, but the Greater Region of Luxembourg includes two German federal states, the French region of Alsace and Lorraine, and the Belgian province of Wallonia.
“If the reform ends up keeping nonresidents off the market, the government might even face antidiscriminatory lawsuits,” Wirtz added.
“Moreover, if you really want to solve the black-market issue, you need to open sales to anyone.”
