Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4
Legislation: No amount of cannabis is legal to possess in Belgium, however possession of up to 3g of cannabis by adults, for personal use, is tolerated in Belgium. It is also said that 1 female plant is tolerated. Police will take the name of an individual in possession, but the Belgian state will not prosecute. We’ve been told that a new law to allow for medical use of cannabis has lead the police to be more forgiving about possession of small amounts of non-medicinal cannabis. FA tells us that there is no legal way to buy or import cannabis or its seeds.
in case you don’t understand french here below you’ll find a extract from the belgian law stating that amount of canabis up to 3 grams will not be confiscated from the pot user.
another reporter added: “You may have up to 5 grams with you without worrying about the police but since the law is pretty confusing cops sometimes confiscate even small quantities. Smoking and dealing in public is illegal.”
Law enforcement: It is illegal to smoke cannabis in Belgium, but like in much of Europe, the police will only confiscate if you have less than 3 to 5 grams. Also, if you have it cut up, you might be considered a dealer. as elsewhere depends on the policeman you get in front of you.
another reporter added: “Every time I come in Antwerp I smell and see people smoking weed. Most cops tolerate the smoking (if it’s not excessive or in the neighbourhood of schools) but dealing in public or disturbing the order will get you in trouble.”
Where to buy marijuana in Antwerp: > > There’s a place called Groenplats which is one of the main squares in town. I approached some hippie looking people and they helped me out. Interestingly enough, the real key is knowing who to spot and coming off as a fellow smoker in whatever city your in.
another reporter added: “I think (I’ve got my own resources 😉 ) most young people will help you in finding good quality weed. As it is omnipresent you’ll find it probably yourself without the help of other people”
Antwerp marijuana prices: The price depends on the quality. Low quality is about 2~3€ per gram but usually it’ll cost you 5€ per gram for something decent. Pricing is comparable with The Netherlands (it’s just 10km to the north).
Brands: Thanks to the multicultural society you’ll be able to locate almost every kind of weed or hashish.
