White paper proposes up to 7 grams cannabis possession & cultivating up to 4 plants

 - Local - Mar 30

Excerpts from White Paper in regards to cannabis reform have revealed that a decriminalisation of up to 7 grams of cannabis possession and a 4 plant household growth for personal use will come into effect

Government has thus proposed that possession of more than 7 grams but less than 28 grams for one’s exclusive personal use should be subject to proceedings before Commissioner for Justice.


Consumption of cannabis in public will however not be allowed. A €233.33 fine will be administered if this is breached.

Every residential household can thus grow up to 4 plants in a space not visible to the public and that does not allow smells to be emitted. The cultivated cannabis cannot be sold and can be consumed only in the same household. Consumption cannot occur in front of minors.
