Legality of Cannabis by U.S. Jurisdiction

Cannabis in Bosnia and Herzegovina is illegal.


In 2016, a survey conducted at the Faculty of Philosophy within Mostar University found that 92% of students supported legalizing cannabis for medical purposes.[1]

Possible legalization of medical cannabis[edit]

In 2016 it was announced that the Ministry of Civil Affairs had formed a task force to explore the legalizing of cannabis and cannabinoids for medical purposes.[2]


Following the 1992–1995 Bosnian War, Bosnia became a major producer of cannabis, with much of its output being routed through Slovenia and Croatia due to higher prices there.[3]
