Russia to allow sale of cannabis?

Russia to open marijuana retail chain?

Editor's Note: We've slightly revised this post with question marks and this statement. We don't know if this story is true. It's been picked up by many blogs and websites but there seems to be no official confirmation. Russia's government has not been kind to tokers, maybe it's changed, but it's likely a not. Stay tuned, when we find out for sure, hoax or truth, we'll let you know.

The first store to sell marijuana will appear in Russia in Nizhny Novgorod. However, it is not going to sell the psychotropic substance to everyone. Persons under 18 years of age will not be allowed to purchase this product, and pregnant women will not be able to enter the store either. The opening is planned for June. At the moment, the store chain management is holding negotiations with suppliers.

It has been decided to open a network of similar stores later in Moscow, Irkutsk and Samara.

It will be recalled that, as of December 2010, it is allowed by law to sell marijuana in Russia. The State Duma approved the project to distribute the psychotropic substances for medical purposes. Marijuana is also known as an anesthetic, antiepileptic, anticonvulsive, and antiemetic medicine.

  5. Someone find anything about this topic anywhere else and please post a link. I can't find this story any where else. Plus the Russian government venomously apposed the UN report stating that countries should legalize Marijuana. So, please, someone prove this isn't utter nonsense. Or the Author should take this misinformation down.
