Larnaca, Cyprus

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 1

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal and so is any related action. In the eyes of the Cypriot Police Force using the good old “Its for personal use.” doesn’t quite cut it.

Law enforcement: If the cops notice you doing anything even vaguely suspicious, they’ll come up and start giving you all sorts of shit. Extreme discretion when smoking publicly is advised. The best time and place to smoke without being bothered is in either a school or on the beach late at night. Police Brutality usually goes unpunished and they intensely dislike foreigners, especially English ones. So watch your arse.

Where to buy marijuana: Sorry, but if you havent got the hook-up youre pretty much screwed. Even if you do have the hook up, its still a real hassle to get some puff (you have to order it in advance, wait 5 hours for it, jump through a whole load of unnecessary hoops basically).

Marijuana prices: After Cyprus replaced the pound with the euro the prices went sky high.

It used to be 10CYP per gram and you could find the occasional ounce for 200 (really nice Cypriot homegrown shit aswell).

But times have changed, its mainly hash now and if you can find any weed it’ll be a shitty amount and its all incredibly expensive:

20-30 Euros-1g of Lebanese, Moroccan or Afgani hash

20-25 Euros-1g of some skanky dirt weed mixed with male leaves 40-50 Euros-1g of Skunk. (Not bad stuff, but who in their right minds would pay that kind of dosh for one gram?)

Marijuana brands: Moroccan Hash–hard, dark. Fluffs up nicely when heated.

Lebanese Hash–Very golden colour. Really uplifting high.

Afgani Black–The Sticky Stuff.

Sketchy local dirtweed–Smells sketchy, tastes sketchier. Usually a crap amount with alot of stems. No seeds though.

Skunk–Its well good shit.

Lefkosia, Cyprus

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5

Legislation: forbidden. but since the island is so rural and desrted; no one sees no one so much. much of the people do not recognize it.

Law enforcement: despite everything if you’re caught, don’t deny; accept that you’re smoking. by that behaviour your punishment will be less and less. You’ll probably spend a night in the police station then you’ll be freed.

Where to buy marijuana: Usually in bet offices it’s sold in good quality. It is recommended to bring yours from your country…

Marijuana prices: 10gr is 30 dollars.

Brands: rare and hard to find but excellent.

More information: go to bellapais and smoke there. I promise it will be one of the best memories (maybe at the top)

Limassol, Cyprus

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 1

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal and so is any related action.

Cannabis sentences can reach 8 years. You are legally allowed 30 grams or 3 plants not to be considered a dealer (if you’re not a dealer you get a huge fine and/or a small sentence).

another reporter added: “if you get caught, you are fu**ed!! Unless you are very very very very connected. Cops will beat you to a pulp and arrest you. This is not Europe man! They do not follow the rules. Amnesty I/tnl should get involved. My advice is simple. Smoke on, enjoy yourselves but under no circumstances get caught. If you are being pulled over and you are holding…eat it and always have water to wash it down. And the potheads saga continues…”

Law enforcement: Cops can’t do anything to you if they don’t find anything on you. Never admit you smoked (they aren’t allowed to take a force blood or urine test on you). If you get caught you will probably get your ass kicked. Girls will be let off much more easily

another reporter added: “if you are dealing you will go to jail.

If you get busted for a joint, they arrest you and let you go after 3 or 4 days to scare you. If you’re local you’re FUCKED!!”

Where to buy marijuana: if you r a tourist you’re f**ked!! Anything u buy will be laced. u might as well get drunk with some of the most expensive liquor u can get your hands on as this will definitely save you a few pounds. If you know at least one “rich” local who is an avid smoker and you trust them, this is the only way you are guaranteed to get the good s**t. If you ask around the right circles, you can also find mushrooms from Holland. Brilliant!! A little tip. Most upper class 25 -35 yr olds are all potheads… very hush hush and some not…

Marijuana prices: Limassol is the drug capital of Cyprus( due to the main port being located there). The prices are cheaper than in other cities

Normal Limassol prices

10-15 pounds for a gram

50 pounds for 7-8 grams( unless you’re an idiot that gets ripped off)

and also:

worst case scenario: Best case scenario:

3 grams = 50 pounds 5 g’s 50 pounds

1/4 oz ( which in Cyprus

is 6.4 g’s)= 100 pounds 1/4 0z. 7g’s=70

1 oz. 25 g’s = 350 pounds 1 0z. 29 g’s 280

Marijuana brands: Limassol has some white widow and other brands brought from Amsterdam. Hash is extremely rare in Cyprus, and usually high quality coz its brought from Lebanon

and also: “Very shitty skunk from the other side laced with poison for the above prices. ( you can recognize this shit from the texture. If it’s wet, stinks, smells unfamilliar…etc etc etc…DONT BUY IT!!!)

Local or Albanian crap for about 200 an 0z.

The best shit money can buy… do you have the right connections?? Unfortunately that’s the only way to get high here. So bring you weed from home and be stress free. No dangers at the airport as long as you don’t bring a kilo.”

Nicosia, Cyprus

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 1

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal and so is any related action.

Cannabis sentences can reach 8 years. You are legally allowed 30 grams or 3 plants not to be considered a dealer (if you’re not a dealer you get a huge fine and/or a small sentence).

Law enforcement: do not even think of smoking in public. you will be arrested immediately. never have marijuana on you as you walk through the city.. at late times e.g 2 A.M+ if the cops see you and you look suspect you may be searched. this is unlikely but it can happen. The cops will take you down beat the shit out of you if they are in the mood take the weed from there selfs andf take you in!!! If get to court you will be setenced

This is bad shit happening in cyprus…

another reporter added: “Cops can’t do anything to you if they don’t find anything on you. Never admit you smoked (they aren’t allowed to take a force blood or urine test on you). If you get caught you will probably get your ass kicked. Girls will be let off much more easily”

Where to buy marijuana: you can’t buy marijuana unless you know people.. At this time of the year even people with good connections find it hard to find.*this is happening only this year* it is impossible to buy from the street. you may find in psychedelic parties.

Local contacts, such as private college students, teenagers and a few bars( that are owned by snitches, never go there). There are no street dealers and undercover cops waltz around all the time!

Marijuana prices: if you are lucky you can find skunk for 35

euros per gram and weed for 20

Local weed(old shit)- 10 cyprus pounds per gram( make sure its a gram 🙁 )

“Skunk” 15-20 pounds per gram

40-50 pounds for 3 grams

100 pounds for 7-8 grams

Marijuana brands: although it is very hard to find,if your lucky enough to find it is almost impossible that you will get shitty stuff. anything you get will be very good. cypriot weed and skunk kick ass. hash is not so popular and few people smoke it.

If you’re extremely lucky you can find white widow or such brands brought from holland in the summer. other than that its all old skunk which is a month old and is made fresher by being laced with something or wet and then dried. Hash is extremely rare in Cyprus, and usually high quality coz its brought from Lebanon

More information: Be careful with some of the “skunk”. It can give you a huge rush as it can be laced with a random opiate such as tramadol or valium (if you’re lucky) or even weedkiller and aerosol sprays( if you’re unlucky) never give money before seeing the stuff. always be carefull and dont have with you grinders or king size papers cut for roaches. there is undercover police everywhere. if you get busted for dealing you will get punished very harshly.. if you get busted for a joint they will just take you to the police station and ask you where you found it.. they will probably get your joint and smoke it themselves. you will be free the next morning.
