Czech government approves plan for regulated cannabis market

The Czech cabinet yesterday approved a plan for fighting addictions until 2025. It includes the introduction of a strictly regulated cannabis market based on rules drafted by an expert group.

The plan also addresses addiction to other drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and gambling. The plan still has to pass through both houses of the Czech parliament and be signed by the president before it becomes law.

National anti-drug policy coordinator Jindřich Vobořil previously said that the plan would have five priorities. One of them will be a controlled cannabis market. Another one is the tax policy, which could bring Czechia up to CZK 15 billion a year.

The remaining three priorities are prevention and treatment, promoting the relevant steps in the EU, and preparing for possible impacts, he said.
