While technically not legal, the consumption of cannabis is considered to be a part of the Bangladeshi culture. Bangladesh is known to have some of the least restrictive cannabis laws in the world. The result is very relaxed policing that cares little for locals or tourists consuming the plant.

Cannabis and Opium have been traditionally used by Bangladeshi people. Today in Dhaka cannabis can be found in Tobacco stores and usually sold in pre-packed cones.

Cannabis is cultivated, particularly in the districts of Naogaon, Rajshahi, Jamalpur and Netrokona in the northwestern region, as well as the hilly districts near Cox’s Bazaar, Bandarban, Khagrachhari and Rangamati in the southeast (bordering Myanmar). Reliable figures for the total area of cannabis production in Bangladesh are not available, but cultivation in the Chittagong Hill Tract region is reportedly on the increase
