Impacts of the new Criminal Code to be analysed only on the basis of research into marijuana markets

16.05.2010 | Ing. Mgr. Bc. Vendula Běláčková Ph.D.

PRESS RELEASE, Centre for Addictology, 17 May 2010 On 1 January 2010, the new Criminal Code entered into force, together with the Government Regulation setting the quantity of drugs that is still seen as “bigger than small” by the legislation. Both of these legal regulations represent the first historical attempt in the Czech Republic to introduce a clear legislative differentiation between drugs on the basis of their danger for society and health, as is the case in the majority of EU countries. The Centre for Addictology is currently performing a research study assessing the impacts of this legislative amendment on the Czech illegal marijuana market. The first outcomes of the research can be expected at the beginning of 2011; the study itself will be completed after its second phase with a final analytical report in 2012.

Delegations from Member States of the United Nations Organisation met at the 20th General Assembly in June 1998. Czech representatives included the then Prime Minister, Josef Tošovský, and the Secretary of the National Drug Commission, Pavel Bém. They signed the declaration on behalf of the Czech Republic. Other signatories included Koffi Annan, the Secretary-General of the UNO, Pino Arlacchi, the Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and representatives of another 184 states. The declaration gave the world community an unambiguous and ambitious goal: to substantially reduce substance use, as well as the growing and production of drugs, by 2008.
