Malta still frowns upon the use of cannabis for any reason whatsoever. It is not unusual for a police officer to charge citizens with cannabis possession regardless of the quantity found or, whether or not the suspect has an intent to use. In fact, the Justice ministry of Malta reports that every day in the ancient country, someone gets charged for cannabis possession. About 90% of the arrested suspects are first-time offenders. These people get prosecuted by the law enforcement agencies for simply having weed on them.
