The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe. The country is bordered by Germany to the west and north-west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast. Prague is the capital and largest city, with 1.3 million residents.
Cannabis has been decriminalized with possession of up to fifteen grams for personal use or cultivation of up to five plants merely constituting a misdemeanor. This has resulted in the Czech Republic becoming a popular destination for cannabis smokers. Medical use of cannabis on prescription has been legal and regulated since April 2013.
