ADULT-USE CANNABIS LEGALISATION BILL BROUGHT BEFORE PARLIAMENT IN PORTUGAL

Two political parties in Portugal, the Left Bloc and Liberal Initiative, each proposed the legalisation of adult-use cannabis during a parliamentary debate on Wednesday, 9 June. Both bills will now be sent to the Health Committee. Over a period of 60 days, public hearings can be made, amendments presented and negotiations carried out before the deciding vote occurs in Parliament – which could take place in September.

Both parties have essentially proposed that the cultivation, distribution, purchasing, possession and consumption of adult-use cannabis be legalised. ‘Self-cultivation’ for personal use would also be allowed if either bill is approved.
