My friend Zach Peterson snapped this photograph of a woman in her mid-50s calmly carrying at least five very healthy marijuana plants on the 26 tram near Prague's Strašnická metro station around 5 p.m. on a recent weekday. Other than a few smiles and a "Ty vole!" (a mild Czech cussword) or two, Zach says no one really paid the lady much mind.
Personal use of a small amount of marijuana (15 grams or five plants) is tolerated in the Czech Republic (as are small amounts of heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine, believe it or not). But none of us has ever seen a sight quite like this before.
Next stop, Chronic Town!
