Moves to establish an adult-use market in the Czech Republic are set to be launched by the end of the year.
In an interview with the ČTK news channel the national anti-drug coordinator Jindřich Vobořil says he plans to submit a draft over the coming weeks.
This followed a meeting of drug coordinators of the 27 member states of the EU in Prague in September, which looked at ways of regulating a continental cannabis market.
“I would like the law to be in effect from January 2024 at the latest. That is one of my ambitions,” said Mr Vobořil, who has long proposed the liberalisation of the cannabis market in the Czech Republic under strict conditions.
He went on to say the regulations should cover sales, production, recommended THC levels, and the licensing of manufacturers and retailers.
