Survey: Two-thirds of Czechs support liberalization of cannabis laws

Most Czech citizens believe that the current legislation on the possession and growing of cannabis should be less strict, according to a survey conducted by Behavio for the Charter 420 civic initiative, which campaigns for the introduction of a regulated cannabis market.

National anti-drug coordinator Jindrich Voboril has promoted a strictly regulated cannabis market. He says the state would receive tax revenue from this market which could be used for the prevention and treatment of addiction.

The survey showed that two-thirds of Czechs (66%) agree that possessing and growing cannabis should not be a crime. Three-quarters of respondents (76%) supported regulated hemp sales to adults.

64% said that the current legislation concerning cannabis should be more liberal, 3% said it should be stricter, and the remainder would keep it unchanged.
