Legislation

Cannabis and all activities associated with it are illegal in Togo, its derivatives are controlled as “narcotic drugs.” Smoking it in public or the possession of any amount is punishable by law. Anyone caught consuming, cultivating and/or selling cannabis in any form may be penalized by imprisonment and/or a fine. However, as with many countries in Africa, police bribery is rife.[1]

Government forces are actively engaged in cannabis eradication programs with their Territorial Brigade Akoumapé (TBA) seizing 126kg of cannabis in 2010 according to a regional media source.[2]
