The Development and Progress of Marijuana Legalization in Europe

It’s been a long time coming but Marijuana Legalization in Europe may be getting closer for more of us Europeans!

Cannabis is being decriminalised and legalised around the world, particularly in a growing number of states in America, as well as parts of Canada, and famously Uruguay…

Plus those wacky people in North Korea! (Just think of the paranoia those guys must endure)

But until now Europe has only had a handful of places where it’s legal to smoke the sacred herb… The Netherlands being the most well known in Europe, but Spain has also decriminalised weed and allows private cultivation of a number of plants for personal use as well as Cannabis Clubs…

Lately, there has been a slew of marijuana legalization news coming out about various countries in Europe as they either soften their stance on the illegality of Cannabis or look into ways of regulating the Cannabis industry for health and taxation purposes.

Either way, it’s looking better and better for Europeans that like to use marijuana for health, relaxation and recreational purposes.
