Business Cann reported the following late last week… as of today the Guardian reports that the PM has been booted out in an election wipeout (post Pandora Papers revelations?) and to top that the President has just been admitted to intensive care, reasons as yet unknown.
Hemp may have to wait.
SWEEPING changes to the way cannabis is regulated in the Czech Republic have been warmly welcomed as a positive development for the industry.
Czechia was one of the first European nations to permit the use of medical cannabis in 2013 after previously decriminalising cannabis use and possession three years earlier.
Despite this, those working in the hemp and CBD industry were still in danger of breaking the law as all cannabis extracts, containing any THC, are deemed ‘addictive substances’.
However, the country’s President Miloš Zeman is expected to sign into law a new bill from the Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of Czech Parliament, which will signal a new era for cannabis.
