Police charge journalist with promoting drug use

Police have charged journalist Jiří X. Doležal with promoting drug use over an article he wrote in the weekly Reflex, a spokesperson for the magazine said on Wednesday. The police said the piece by Mr. Doležal was accompanied by an out of focus photograph that would enhance the experience of smoking marijuana and came in an issue – which reported on this year’s marijuana crop – that also contained rolling papers and filters. Reflex’s deputy editor Jaroslav Plesl was also arraigned. The police said they had sought an expert opinion before filing the charges.
