Location of Djibouti in its region

Djibouti, officially the Republic of Djibouti, is a country located in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Eritrea in the north, Ethiopia in the west and south, and Somalia in the southeast. The remainder of the border is formed by the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden at the east. Djibouti, along with much of the Horn of Africa region, is currently becoming more economically and politically unstable.

Legislation

Djibouti is unusual in Africa for the harshness of its cannabis laws; cannabis is completely prohibited, as are all activities associated with it, with sentences for drug possession and sale punishable by five years’ imprisonment and a fine. Production, manufacturing and trafficking of illicit drugs may be punishable by life imprisonment. There are no statistics available for the number of prisoners currently serving sentences for drug-related crimes; however, the sole central prison in Djibouti city only holds a maximum of 600 prisoners and is already overcrowded. There are no medical marijuana programs.[1][2]
