Location of Guinea-Bissau within Africa

Guinea-Bissau, officially the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Senegal to the north and Guinea to the south and east, with the Atlantic Ocean to its west. It covers 36,125km² with an estimated population of 1,600,000.

Legislation

While illegal, cannabis is not the focus of Guinea-Bissau's drug problem and as such is rarely enforced. Cocaine has found its way into all walks of society and the little country has a long history of trafficking hard drugs with even the military suspected of being involved. The police are also lenient on drug offenses as many of their peers are addicts. The US government once stated that Guinea Bissau is probably the worst drug trafficking state in the world.[1]
