A news release from the EU’s European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction on 17th July reported on decisions of the courts in 2 Member States.
Italy’s highest court, the Court of Cassation, published a note of information on the legality of selling low-THC cannabis. This followed attempts to prosecute entrepreneurs who were openly selling cannabis flower and other extracts. The court held that the sale and marketing to the public of products derived from cannabis is an offence under the Italian drug control law ‘unless the products are in practice devoid of narcotic effects’.
The Supreme Court of Sweden ruled on a case involving possession of ‘CBD oil’ extracted from industrial hemp. The court ruled that, while industrial hemp is exempted from coverage, preparations made from it that contain THC are not exempted, and are therefore included in narcotic control laws.
