According to the government’s coalition agreement, the legalization of recreational cannabis is due to occur within the next five years.
The Consumer Choice Center is a US lobbying body which lobbies the freedoms, rights, and interests of consumers. In its own words, the organization “empowers consumers to promote science, choice, and freedom in the marketplace.”
The organisation has decided to present its measures and experiences of an “intelligent legalisation of cannabis” to the Grand Duchy. Deputy director Yaël Ossowski highlighted that cannabis consumers especially appreciate new innovations and an intelligent legalisation.
The CCC’s Canadian representatives wanted to demonstrate the Canadian model to Luxembourgish authorities. As a result, they are visiting the Grand Duchy over three days to show the Canadian perspectives, rationale, and experiences of legalization through press conferences and meetings. The representatives are meeting the LSAP and the trade union confederation the LCGB to spread their ideas in the hopes that the government will orientate its path around their findings.
However, Minister of Justice Felix Braz and Minister of Health Etienne Schneider, whose ministries are charged with legalization, are not participating in the meetings.
The Consumer Choice Center (CCC) empowers consumers to raise their voice in media, the Internet, and on the streets and facilitates activism towards a more empowered consumer. Learning from the successes of its parent organization, Students For Liberty, the CCC will bring the struggle for consumer freedom to the next level.
The CCC represents consumers in over 100 countries across the globe. We monitor closely regulatory trends in Washington, Brussels, Geneva and other hotspots of regulation and inform and activate consumers to fight for #ConsumerChoice.
