Malta's new rule approves cannabis for personal use. Malta becomes the first European country to legalize cannabis. It becomes legal for citizens aged 18 or above to possess up to 7grams of Cannabis and to cultivate up to 4 plants at home. Anyone found with more than seven grams can be fined up to $115. The law also permits people to buy seeds and buds and provides a path for those with previous convictions for cannabis possession to be cleared. Under the law, cannabis users can sign up with an association where they can buy seeds and buds. Malta's parliament approved this legal reform on Tuesday. It was widely expected to pass the bill, which has been supported by Prime Minister Robert Abela. However, Malta's opposition Nationalist Party voted against the change. But smoking it in public or in front of children will be illegal.

After Malta became the first European Union country to legalize cannabis for personal use, other European states are on track to follow suit.
