Albania Close to Legalizing Medical Marijuana

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama announced today that the government is preparing a draft law that would legalize the cultivation of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

During a joint conference with EU ambassador Luigi Soreca, Rama said that the government has been working with foreign and local advisers for a year and the draft law would be made public soon. He also highlighted the importance of learning from other countries’ experiences with medical marijuana.

Following Rama’s statement, the EU Delegation in Albania felt the need to clarify that the European Commission and the EU Delegation hadn’t been involved in drafting or consulting on reports regarding the legalization of medical marijuana in Albania.
