New Year 2010: Czech Republic decriminalizes personal possession, use, and cultivation of various drugs

As of New Year's day 2010 it is now legal to possess, use, and in some instances grow various types of formly banned plants in the Czech Republic. Mexico passed similar legislation in 2009 decriminalizing possession and use of certain drugs, but the Czech government went even further by allowing possession of larger amounts, than Mexico. A week prior to decriminalizing many drugs, the government made it legal to allow limited cultivation of marijuana, coca, mescaline cactus, and forty varieties of psilocybin mushrooms.
