Treaty Compliance Options for Cannabis Regulations in the EU

This page on ResearchGate contains a policy brief that outlines the options available for cannabis regulation in the European Union while ensuring compliance with both international law and the EU legal framework. The document examines various models of cannabis regulation, including decriminalization and legal regulation, and evaluates their potential to work within the context of the EU and international law.


The policy brief argues that the current approach to cannabis regulation within the EU is a patchwork of various policies, including some countries that have legalized cannabis for medical purposes and others that have decriminalized cannabis possession. However, such a piecemeal approach does not provide a comprehensive regulatory framework for the production, distribution, and use of cannabis.


Therefore, the policy brief considers the possibility of adopting a legal regulation model for cannabis that is compatible with both international law and the EU legal framework. Such a model would establish clear rules and guidelines for the production, distribution, and use of cannabis and would prioritize the protection of public health and safety.


The policy brief also examines the various challenges that EU member states may face in adopting such a model, such as the need to navigate international treaties and EU laws that prohibit or restrict the production, distribution, and use of cannabis. It also considers the experiences of other countries that have adopted different cannabis regulation models, such as Uruguay and Canada.


In conclusion, the policy brief recommends that EU member states should adopt a carefully regulated legal model for cannabis that can ensure compliance with international law and the EU legal framework. This approach would enable member states to effectively regulate cannabis while minimizing the negative impact on public health and safety.
