December 7, 2022 from BRNO Daily
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 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.
