Hard drugs are no longer sexy for young Czechs

One of the things I've noticed most since I moved here in 1996 is the huge rise in usage of, as Radio Prague puts it, "drugs derived from cannabis." This started maybe three or four years ago. To put it blunty, pot is everywhere now. At Kc 250-300 a gram, I haven't a clue how that compares to prices further west.

But what really grabbed me was this:

Since the phenomenon of ecstasy abuse is too strong to fight against, the state is at least trying to reduce the dangers of this drug by, for example funding the testing of the quality of ecstasy available in the clubs.
Aw yeah.
