KAVOS is known for its wild nightlife with young Brits heading to the Greek island of Corfu each summer, but this year there’s something new on offer to revellers.
Daily Star Online can exclusively reveal that shops in the party resort are selling weed over the counter – and sales are expected to be through the roof.
On offer near the tills in 12.5g packets, “Cannabis Satvia L.” is being sold to revellers for as little as €10 a pack.
One shop keeper told us: “We’ve bought loads in, everyone has.
“We’re expecting it to be really popular.”
While the buzzword for wild nights out and frolics in the sand is usually Magaluf in Majorca, Kavos has seen a huge popularity surge in recent years.
Brits head to the stunning destination to enjoy beach, boat and paint parties.
The resort boasts intense nightclubs such as Buzz and Atlantis where lads and lasses can party all night.
But this summer they will be able to add another substance into the mix.
Greece legalised cannabis for medicinal use in 2017, and in March of 2018 it lifted a ban on growing and producing marijuana, in the hope of drawing foreign investment into the sector.
The construction of new facilities for marijuana growing are underway in several locations in Greece, and production of industrial and medical cannabis may begin as soon as late 2019.
Although the packaging of the Kavos cannabis points the users towards drinking the cannabis like tea leaves, the shop keeper told us it’s just a cover and meant to be smoked.
The news comes as new report points to an increase in the use of cannabis in Greece along with a significant decrease in that of heroin and other opioids.
