The majority of Luxembourg residents think cannabis should be fully legalised for personal use and not just for medical reasons, according to a survey carried out by TNS Ilres.

Fifty-six percent of respondents were in favour for cannabis being legalised, with 18% being in "absolute" agreement that the drug should be fully legal in the Grand Duchy.

However, the lion's share of those in agreement, at 38%, believe cannabis should be legalised "under certain conditions".

However, 41% of residents questioned were against cannabis legalisation.

While 23% would "rather not" have cannabis legalised, 18% would "under no circumstances" want it to be legal.

Three percent of those surveyed had no opinion on the subject.

One in four of those who categorically opposed the legalisation of cannabis in Luxembourg was aged 65 and over.

Younger participants, particularly those aged between 18 and 24, generally responded favourably to total legalisation.
