czech cannabis flag262% of Czechs consider the use of cannabis to be morally acceptable, according to a recent survey by the Centre for Public Opinion Research (CVVM), which is 9% higher than in 2019. Otherwise, the Czech public’s opinion on the acceptability of using other substances has not changed in the past four years. The use of ecstasy, methamphetamine and heroin continues to be met with the highest level of disapproval, from over 80% of respondents. “Longer-term comparisons show that views on the issues change little over time, and the current survey shows the most tolerant view yet of drug addicts, addiction treatment, and related services,” said the authors of the survey, which involved 800 people aged 15 and over between 27 March and 22 May.
