Czech Republic to Decriminalize Personal Marijuana Possession
(Mike Meno) One more country has decided to take a meaningful step toward ending marijuana prohibition.
Starting next year, citizens of the Czech Republic will be able to grow up to five marijuana plants and possess “several marijuana cigarettes” for personal use, without fear of criminal prosecution.
According to the Wall Street Journal:
“The plant still remains illegal, however, though from the new year possession of five or less plants is merely a misdemeanor, and fines for possession will be on par with penalties for parking violations.”
How many more countries will implement significant marijuana policy reforms before our federal government decides it’s time to act?
