Iceland is the latest country to join the cannabis legalization evolution that continues to expand its way throughout the world.
Pawel Bartoszek, a member of the nation’s Reform Party, has proposed a bill for implementing a legal cannabis industry in the country. The document is based on the guide How to Regulate Cannabis: A Practical Guide, published by the independent British think tank Transform.
If approved, the bill would decriminalize the use of recreational marijuana by adults and will regulate the production and sale of cannabis in Iceland.
According to Bartoszek’s proposition, Icelander over the age of 20 would be able to buy marijuana products. The bill also includes establishing of so-called “cannabis lounges” where the social-use will be allowed.
The comprehensive legislation covers all aspects of the industry, including regulations for product packaging and retail sales, tax plan and a total ban on cannabis advertising.
