Original Consultation

1.        Background​


Government is presenting a White Paper with a set of proposals to strengthen the legal framework regulating the responsible use of cannabis in Malta. These proposals are guided by the principles of justice, proportionality, and the individual’s freedom to make responsible choices.

2.        Consultation Questions
Government is asking the general public to reflect on the proposals presented in this White Paper, and provide input as follows:

  1. Where there is an issue with a specific proposal, a direct reference to the proposal is to be made, and comments about what needs to be added or removed are presented as briefly and directly as possible.
  2. Where there is an issue that the proposals are silent or too generic about, the concern should first be explained, and ideally formulated in terms of a concrete proposal.
