Marijuana is illegal here, but is tolerated for personal use. So as long as you smoke in the privacy of your home and are discreet you shouldn’t have too many problems.
Possession of small amounts for personal use is a misdemeanor subject to fines and the suspension of documents like passports or driver’s licenses.Â The sale of cannabis products is illegal and punishable by imprisonment; as is cultivation, even in small amounts for exclusively personal use.
Licensed cultivation for medical and industrial use is strictly regulated.
