France will not legalize the recreational use of cannabis but could consider authorizing its medical use, Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne said.

“The position of the French state is clear. We are against legalizing cannabis for recreational use. There is an ongoing discussion about a medical use,” Borne told LCI television.

Borne’s comments follow publication of a report  by French think-tank the Conseil d’Analyse Economique recommending legalizing cannabis for recreational use in France.

In France, GreenLeaf, a French hemp-based and cannabis healthcare company, recently said it had agreed to be bought by rival EMMAC Life Sciences Ltd, as the legal use of cannabis for medicinal purposes grows further.
