Czech Decrimalises All Drugs
Reported by News Editor
Submitted 21-12-09 13:09
The Czech Republic followed Portugal to become the second European country to formally decriminalise drug possession this week, announcing specific quantities beneath which users will not be prosecuted.
Under the new laws (which come into force on January 1) Czech people will be allowed to possess up to 4 ecstasy tablets. 15 grams (half an ounce) of marijuana, 5 grams of hash and 1 gram of cocaine with prison sentences still a potential threat for those in possession of more.
Legendary Czech club promoter Ales Bleha told Skrufff he’s delighted about the new laws though said he expects them to have minimal impact on people in Czech.
“Few people have any problems with drugs here already, unless they deliberately provoke the police or do stupid things and people who already smoke marijuana or use hard drugs will do so the same as before,” he predicted. “The Czech Republic is already sometimes called the 2nd Amsterdam or ‘Amsterdam of the East’.
“But what’s really important about these new laws is that they represent genuine decriminalization which is an important next step towards full legalization which I believe is the only possible solution for dealing with drugs and reducing the damage associated with them. I don’t consider drug users as a problem, the problems come from the criminals and mafias involved in selling them,” he said.
“I think the quantities they’ve set are OK too,” Ales continued. “At least speaking from my own personal experience, I only smoke marijuana so I can’t really speak about the other drugs but I’d certainly never have more than five grams on me.”
“I’d also like to thank the many people who never give up this fight and worked hard to explain to the government that it’s better to control the drug problem rather than to rely on repression.”
“I hope that drugs will be legalized in the whole Europe within the next decade or two,” he added, “It is the best way how to take this problem under control because as I already said – the real problem is that presented by drug dealers and drug mafia, not about users. And when drugs are forbidden prices go up and they become more attractive for young people.”
