Soccer Fans Can Reportedly Bring Narcotics Including Cocaine And Heroin To The World Cup

Russia’s organizing committee for the 2018 FIFA World Cup announced this week that soccer fans can bring narcotics including cocaine and heroin to the event as long as they have a prescription.

Russia's organizing committee for the 2018 FIFA World Cup announced recently that soccer fans can bring narcotics including cocaine and heroin to this summer's event as long as they have a prescription, reports the Moscow Times. The permission comes through a combination of Eurasian Economic Union and FIFA rules.  According to Newsweek, the Russian-led EAEU "gives foreign travelers the right to carry drugs including cannabis and cocaine with the proper prescription papers." "FIFA rules also allow spectators to have narcotics on their person, but they must have a prescription written in either English or Russian," notes the media outlet. However, that doesn't mean the event is going to be a giant, Woodstock-style free for all. The Moscow Times reports that according to Russia's World Cup organizing committee, "Security officers will monitor the enforcement of rules for carrying prescription drugs to stadium grounds at checkpoints." Furthermore, anyone acting in a manner deemed to present a risk to themselves or others will be removed from the venue, notes Sports Illustrated.
