Moscow may allow football fans to bring cannabis, cocaine, and marijuana to the 2018 FIFA World Cup provided they go through the necessary regulatory body.
The Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union give travelers the right to bring in banned substances into the country with supporting medical documents written in the Russian language.
According to the regulations, the list of drugs allowed into the Russian-led bloc includes cocaine, cannabis, and heroin.
In a report by Moscow Times, Russia’s 2018 World Cup Organizing Committee, said that law enforcement officers on duty during the World Cup will be tasked with confirming the authenticity of drug prescriptions.
“Security officers will monitor the enforcement of rules for carrying prescription drugs to stadium grounds at checkpoints,”
The report further cites Russia’s Federal Customs Service, saying that football fans carrying drugs will have to fill out a customs declaration.
