In most countries in the world, cannabis is still banned, including Sweden. The Swedish Drugs Law prohibits all contact with drug-based preparations, such as cannabis.
However, many countries are now discussing the facilitations of the rule or are already introducing them.
Uruguay legalized breeding, selling and smoking marijuana. Canada followed and decided last summer that legalization will be conducted on October 17 this year.
In the United States, the drug is banned at the federal level. But about half of the states have created their own rules. In at least eight states, cannabis is allowed or on the go, including the largest population, California. Numerous others, including the third most populous Florida, endorse medical use.
Many other countries allow marijuana under certain circumstances. In the EU, Denmark and Portugal recently changed the rules in a more accessible way.
