Fans Will Be Allowed To Bring Marijuana, Cocaine, and Heroin to World Cup in Russia
The FIFA World Cup in itself is already crazy for the fans, but Russia plans to make the experience even crazier and possibly even more dangerous.
Russia plans on having the entire crowd beyond lit, because football fans will be allowed to bring marijuana, cocaine, and even heroin inside the stadium, according to The Moscow Times.
“The Russia-led Eurasian Economic Union grants travelers the right to bring 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.
Russia’s 2018 World Cup Organizing Committee told the pro-Kremlin Izvestia newspaper that law enforcement officers on duty at World Cup stadiums will be tasked with verifying the authenticity of drug prescriptions.
“Security officers will monitor the enforcement of rules for carrying prescription drugs to stadium grounds at checkpoints,” the organizing committee said Tuesday.
Izvestia cites Russia’s Federal Customs Service as saying that football fans carrying the drugs will have to fill out a customs declaration.”
Something about this sounds rather fishy, but we fully expect thousands to take full advantage of this in any way they can.
Russia is set to host the World Cup in 2018 from June 14 to July 15. The games will take place in 11 different cities, including Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Sochi.
