Bangladesh, officially the People's Republic of Bangladesh, is a country in south Asia. It is bordered by India to its west, north and east; Burma to its southeast and separated from Nepal and Bhutan by the Siliguri Corridor. To its south, it faces the Bay of Bengal. Bangladesh is the world's eighth-most populous country, with over 160 million people, and among the most densely populated countries.
While technically not legal, the consumption of cannabis is considered to be a part of the Bangladeshi culture, and as such there are no laws prohibiting it. In fact, along with North Korea, Czech Republic, Portugal, Uruguay, the Netherlands, and the United States (Washington and Colorado), Bangladesh is known to have some of the least restrictive cannabis laws in the world. The result is very relaxed policing that cares little for locals or tourists consuming the plant.
