Location of Seychelles in relation to Africa

Seychelles, officially the Republic of Seychelles, is a 155-island country spanning an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, whose capital, Victoria, lies some 1500 km east of mainland Southeast Africa, northeast of the island of Madagascar. Other nearby island countries and territories include Zanzibar to the west, Mauritius, Rodrigues, Agaléga and Réunion to the south, and Comoros and Mayotte to the southwest. Seychelles, with a population of 90,024, has the smallest population of any African state.

Legislation

Narcotic production in Seychelles is limited to the cultivation of cannabis. Plants are grown outdoors and police raids are regularly made at locations throughout the larger islands. It has been reported that significant progress has been made in suppressing drug activity on street level and the importation/trafficking level. Between 15 to 20 persons are arrested each week for minor drug offenses such as possession.[1]
