Cannabis in Mongolia

Cannabis is illegal in Mongolia. In 2008, most of the cannabis seized in Mongolia was grown locally, though some was produced in Russia.[1]

History[edit]

Cannabis may have been introduced to Mongolia by the Scythians, and historically was used for medical and shamanic purposes.[2]
