Cannabis in Malta is legal, within limits, to grow, use, and possess for adults. In 2018, the Parliament of Malta legalised medical cannabis. On 14 December 2021, the Parliament of Malta legalised recreational cannabis for personal possession and use for those aged 18-years-old and over, becoming the first EU country to do so.
The Authority for the Responsible Use of Cannabis (‘ARUC’) has been established by Chapter 628 of the laws of Malta enacted in 2021. ARUC is responsible for the licensing of non-profit associations that cultivate and distribute cannabis and also provides education on various levels.
Cannabis Social Clubs in Malta can cultivate cannabis to distribute among members, up to a maximum of 7g per day and 50g per month.
