"No Room for a Legal Market" in Czech Reform Plans
Reports from local media outlets have claimed that the Czech government presented a draft of a cannabis regulation bill on January 10th, but the bill was noticeably missing any mention of the initially suggested framework for a regulated market.
The Czech Republic is one of several European countries that are actively moving forward on cannabis regulation. Recreational use remains illegal in the Czech Republic however possession for personal use was decriminalised back in 2010, and medical cannabis was legalised later in 2013.
In late 2022, the Czech Republic began its efforts surrounding legislation for the legalisation of adult-use cannabis, which included the establishment of a legal market. It now seems however that reform will be more limited and concern simply possession, cultivation at home, and the start-up of cannabis social clubs.
