Cannabis in Denmark is illegal for recreational use and the punishment for small amounts (up to 9.9 g) for personal use is typically a fine. In certain cases such as socially vulnerable people, a warning can be given instead of a fine. Larger quantities (more than 100 g) generally results in a prison sentence. Driving under the influence of cannabis is illegal and all but the smallest amounts of THC in a blood sample results in a fine and loss of the driver’s license.
Medical use is allowed through a four-year pilot program initiated in January 2018. Three types of cannabis derivatives for medical use were approved by the Danish Medicines Agency in 2011, but require prescription.
