You might have trouble buying a beer on match day in Russia but World Cup fans may still snort cocaine at the stadium – provided they have a doctor's note.The loophole in Russia's no-nonsense approach to recreational drugs – they are all illegal – comes in a loose alliance it forged in 2014 with Belarus and Kazakhstan.The entire appendix to the drug regulation is 383 entries long.None of this has been tried in practice and flying to Russia with a stash of hash is probably still not wise.It is illegal to smoke during matches so the drugs will probably have to be ingested by other means.
