The EU Delegation in Tirana has clarified that it is not involved in the government’s plan to legalize cultivation of marijuana in Albania.

In a Twitter status, the EU presence in Albania has distanced itself from any insinuation that the government has consulted with Brussels over a possible law which could allow the cultivation of marijuana for medical purposes. 

The bill was presented on Saturday by Prime Minister Edi Rama during a joint conference with EU Ambassador Luigi Soreca.

The conference took place as a part of Europe’s Day celebrations. PM Rama claimed that the government has been working for over a year on the bill which will soon be open for public discussion.
