czech cannabis flag2A basic legislation proposal for introducing a regulated cannabis market in Czechia should be finished by the end of March, the country’s National Drug Coordinator Jindřich Vobořil said after a meeting of experts. The proposal should lay the foundations for the rules of handing licenses to producers, distributors and sellers, as well as to the formation of so-called cannabis clubs and the cultivation of cannabis. The idea is to "create three principles of regulation". This should cover licensing, cannabis clubs and self-growing. The so-called substantive plan should be in place by the end of the first quarter of 2023. The proposal should then be discussed by coalition politicians and the government. Work would then continue on drafting specific paragraphs.
