Marijuana Possession and Use in the Czech Republic

Marijuana in República is in a good situation and carrying small quantities for personal use is decriminalised. Since 2010, the Czech Republic has taken a much more liberal stance on the marijuana possession and consumption. However, if you carry large quantities of marijuana in the Czech Republic you can be fined up to CZK 15,000, about EUR 5,500.

The revolutionary Czech drug law distinguishes between marijuana and other drugs, being most permissive with the first one. However, as discussed, there are a number of quantity limitations that will determine the fine total amount to pay. Thus, if a person is caught with more than 5 grams of hashish or 15 grams of marijuana may face higher penalties. 

Similarly, possession of more dangerous drugs such as cocaine or heroin can lead to imprisonment from 2 to 8 years. On the other hand, the Czech Republic has a rather evolved penal system that puts reforming prisoners before punishment. Moreover, in many cases prison sentences can be commuted to rehabilitation programmes.

Finally, if a conviction for marijuana large quantities can be justified because a dependence on cannabis, the person will be able to take up community service and rehabilitation programmes in order to pay off his or her debt to the state. The same applies to minors, who will have to do rehabilitation and community work.

Marijuana growing in the Czech Republic

Marijuana growing in the Czech Republic is legal, as long as the maximum of 5 Cannabis plants per person is not exceeded. Thus, the use of these plants must be exclusively personal and if it were any commercial use, domestic cultivation would be illegal. Having such a permissive system makes marijuana growing in the Czech Republic something usual. Also big companies are allowed to have big crops and export their flowers.

Germany is one of the major countries importing Cannabis from the Czech Republic. Germany has a more restrictive legal framework, so there are a large number of Cannabis gardens near the border with Germany, ready to supply most of the Cannabis country's demand.

Marijuana sales in the Czech Republic

It is illegal to sell marijuana in the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic takes a much more restrictive stance on drug trafficking, and cannabis is no exception. Thus, for the sale or supply of marijuana in the Czech Republic, penalties ranging from 10 to 18 years' imprisonment are imposed. This depends on the situation in which the seizure was made and possible aggravating circumstances.

One of the aggravating factors that can make the punishment for marijuana trafficking in the Czech Republic more severe is recidivism. Thus, anyone caught repeatedly marketing marijuana may face the highest prison sentences, which are around 15 years.

Legal situation of Medical Cannabis and CBD in the Czech Republic

2013 was the year of the medical marijuana regulation in the Czech Republic. The problem is the same as in other European countries, because the Czech Republic only tenders a few products based on medical marijuana, so there is still much to be done in this regard. Medical marijuana is legal in the Czech Republic but many users report problems in getting prescriptions and supplies.

In the Czech Republic, Ekoplast is the largest manufacturer of medical marijuana. This company was granted permission by the government to operate in 2013, although in 2017 the government revoked this permission. Fortunately, the government soon retracted and re-tendered the distribution of medical marijuana products in the Czech Republic and Ekoplast promised to supply up to 40kg of medical marijuana to patients with various diseases in the country.

Now, in view of the high demand for medical marijuana, the Czech Government has announced that it will expand the availability of medical marijuana in the country. Thanks to complaints from Czech cannabis activists, such as Dusan Dvorak, who accuse the executive of perverse interests in the licensing of medical cannabis, the availability of medical marijuana in the Czech Republic is improving day by day.

Finally, CBD is legal in the Czech Republic and it is possible to consume products based on this cannabinoid as long as they do not contain more than 0.3% THC.

Fines and penalties for marijuana use in the Czech Republic

As mentioned above, it is legal to carry marijuana in the Czech Republic as long as you do not exceed 15 grams of dry Cannabis or 5 grams of hashish. In the event of being caught with a larger quantity of either of the above 2 substances, the seized person may face a fine of up to 15,000 Czech crowns, which is equivalent to about 5,500 euros.
