Marijuana Laws in Belgium

No amount of cannabis is legal to possess in Belgium, you used to be able to possess 3g of cannabis as an adult but as of 2015 that law has changed. If you get caught you have to pay a 70 euro fine, but is still depends on the cop. Some will make you pay, others do not care.

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.

Law enforcement

It is illegal to smoke cannabis in Belgium, but like in much of Europe, the police will only confiscate if you have more than 3 to 5 grams. Also, if you have it cut up, you might be considered a dealer.  Elsewhere will depend on the policeman you get in front of you.

A WBH user 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 neighborhood of schools) but dealing in public or disturbing the order will get you in trouble.”

Where to buy marijuana in Antwerp, Belgium

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.

One user added: “I think 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”.

The price depends on the quality. Usually these days it will be close to 10€ per gram for something good. Pricing is comparable with The Netherlands (it’s just 10km to the north). Thanks to the multicultural society you’ll be able to locate almost every kind of weed or hashish.
