Pirates: Legal marijuana could generate up to CZK 1.8 billion in taxes

Legalizing marijuana would bring the state between CZK 650 million and CZK 1.8 billion in tax revenue, according to an analysis commissioned by the Pirate Party, which was presented on Wednesday.

The study proposes various options for regulating the marijuana market, including mandatory registration of users. It also aims to regulate the black market and restrict minors’ access to cannabis.

The Pirate Party plans to present the study to its government coalition partners next week.
