The cultivation, sale and possession of cannabis are illegal in Tajikistan. Just like in its neighbouring countries (Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan) cannabis grows in the wild in Tajikistan. Wild cannabis in Tajikistan was noted to have a very low THC content and was rarely harvested by traffickers. Tajikistan is a known trafficking country for drugs between Afghanistan and Russia for instance, but some opium and hashish are being produced in the country itself as well.Improve information
