Prague – The Czech government today set the drug possession limits under which the possession of up to 1.5 grammes of heroin, up to one gramme of cocaine and up to two grammes of methamphetamine (pervitine) will not be punishable as of New Year.
Czechs will also be able to legally possess up to 15 grammes of marijuana, according to the Justice Ministry’s proposal approved by the government today.
Justice Minister Daniela Kovarova drafted the proposal on the basis of the current court practice.
Kovarova told CTK that last week the authors of the proposal met experts and agreed that the limits used in the current court practice were acceptable.
Initially, the proposal allowed for the legal possession of up to two grammes of hard drugs, she said.
