In most countries, hemp is still banned, including Sweden. The Swedish Anti-Drug Act prohibits any contact with drugs based on drugs such as cannabis.
But several countries are currently discussing or already implementing simplification rules.
Uruguay has legalized the cultivation, sale and smoking of marijuana. Last summer, Canada followed and decided that the legalization would take place on October 17 this year.
In the United States, drugs are banned at federal level. But around half of the countries have set up their own rules. In at least eight countries, cannabis is allowed either on the road, including the largest population in California. Several other, including the third most popular Florida, confirm medical use.
Under certain circumstances, many other countries authorize marijuana. In the European Union, Denmark and Portugal have recently changed the rules more profitable.
