London Marijuana Laws

Cannabis is considered a Class B drug. Marijuana in the United Kingdom is regulated under the ‘Misuse of Drugs Act 1971’ which classifies drugs in A, B, and C categories with A being the most harmful.Possession, cultivation, transporation and sale are all illegal under UK law. In 2005 marijuana was moved from a Class C to a Class B with much controversy. A failed attempt to reclassify cannabis in England back to C failed in 2012. Due to this class B status, a user can face possession charges of a mandatory 28 days for 3 offences of possession.

Law Enforcement

Marijuana enforcement varies but generally the first two counts of possession of less than 3 grams results in confiscation and a warning.

Where to buy marijuana in London

The best weed can be found in greater London, most notably Brunel University and Thames Valley university or throughout the Uxbridge Road or even in Southall; known in papers as the heroin capital of London. Where simply contacting a dealer via word of mouth will do the job. Make sure you ask for the good stuff or you will end up with hash or something of low quality.

In south London, Brizon, Cold Harbour Lane there are many street sellers that will offer skunk, but this is not the safest place in the world to buy.

We have many reports to consider, also check the comments for the most recent connections:

  • Everywhere in the center of the city. Contacts are easily made in Kings Cross, Brick Lane, Soho, Camden Town, Brixton, and Ladbroke Grove. If you can smell the dope then there is someone selling it nearby. If you don’t know anyone, I suggest that you go to the markets in these areas and the stall holders will likely point you in the right direction.
  • Yes. I did. I took a train out to Brixton. Walked around until I smelled the smoke and got some weed. Trust me. They got the skunk and commercial.
  • A tip for Brixton and Camden Town: It is easy to buy on the street here as you will here offers as you walk along Camden High Street and Coldharbour Lane, but from a safety point of view it is better to get a hookup from someone that you trust, such as a local contact. It is risky to buy weed from these areas just by hooking up on the street as some dealers are crack addicts who just want your wallet. In other cases you may just get ripped off with something that looks like weed, smells like it but is either pure help with very little THC or some hermie rubbish. Use your common sense.

Cannabis Prices and Types

£15 – £25 per 1/8 oz. (3.5 gr), £30- £50 per 1/4 oz, £60- £80 per 1/2 oz.

When purchasing a larger quantity, the price goes down to £100-£130 per oz. Prices are £20 for an eighth (3.5 grams) for an on the spot street deal. Only get a street deal if you’re desperate. If you have a good hook up you can typically get an ounce for £100 – 140. ”

Most cannabis is Skunk imported from Amsterdam.

Another reporter added: “Street dealers only advertise “skunk weed” and “hash”. Neither are really true. Skunk means any smelly weed that batters you over the head, and hash is soapbar which is bootpolish, milk powder, henna, rubber tyres and perhaps the odd bit of trim from a cannabis plant. Do not buy “hash” on the street in London. If you even think about it, at least test what you are buying if that is possible. If you have a good connection then what you can have is unlimited – much of the best stuff is imported from Amsterdam or homegrown and generally very high quality. London has more good weed than it does hashish, because of the sale of soapbar. Hashish is very hard to find here.

More Information

When buying anything from these street peddlers be very careful. Always ask them what they have and what price and always ask them to show it to you first.

  • I have been conned twice by these peddlers. Once they sold me two bags of happy pills and when I checked one of them was normal aspirin and the other was a bag rolled and tightly wrapped around it self.
  • Also once in Camden I bought skunk from the place I normally used to get it, but the guy not only gave me to bags short and then ran away, but the bags he gave me were black and contained wheat in it.
  • Some amusing examples of tolerance to dope can be found in London. At the Notting Hill Carnival each year, rastafarians can be found selling huge logs of weed out of supermarket bags on the street, and its good stuff.
  • Generally any music festival in town should see many dealers doing business aside from the more corporate sponsored shows.

It also includes liquid cannabis, cannabinol and cannabinol derivatives (THC) (as of Jan 29, 2004).

Law enforcement:

Where to buy marijuana: Skunk and soap bar are pretty freely available throughout the city. However finding a dealer can be tough. Your best bet is to use a local contact to connect you with someone known to deal good weed. However make sure to check the stuff you are buying for traces of sand/sawdust as very occaisionally it can be contaminated to add weight.

Overall the quality of green is good. Soap bar can vary.

Marijuana prices: Looking at £20 on the 8th for skunk, possibly £25 for a particularly good bag.

Soap bar can set you back anywhere from £10 – £20 depending on the quality.

Marijuana brands: It’s generally just labelled skunk and the brand isn’t usually known, but some dealers do stock differing brands and can be found out.

Law enforcement: don’t smoke outside the police stations and you should never come to any harm

Where to buy marijuana: there’s endless sources here but at street level it’s complicated, best bet is to ask students or make some long haired friends in the Adelphi its a scream bar on ringway

Marijuana prices: hash 5-15 pound an eigth, regular weed 40 pound an ounce, skunk 90-140 pound an ounce, depending on source and quantity

Marijuana brands: rocky, squidgy black, schwag, thai, various skunk

Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom

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

Legislation: Cannabis is currently classified as a class C substance in the U.K. This means that you can be incarcerated for a period of upto 2 years and probably slapped with a heavy fine if found in possession of the drug, with the prison term going up to 14 years for supply/distribution.

Law enforcement: I spent 2 years in Sheffield as a student, and while I didn’t feel that the police force there were a lackadaisical bunch, they certainly weren’t too worried about kids smoking pot, what with all the council house rowdies hangin’ ’bout on dem street corners!! I even got offered a lift by a cop once cos I was, by my own admission too drunk and stoned to actually make the effort of getting my own sorry ass home!

Where to buy marijuana: Sheffield is primarily an industrial town with a high student population. Just like there are two kinds of lifestyles being lived here, you can get two kinds of pot.

There’s the dealers who hang about in town center on a crowded evening (Friday or Saturday night, or market days). These guys tend to be of the Rastafarian persuasion, and are usually quite approachable, even though they seem intimidating at first. They’ll hook you up with an 8th at 20 quid, but it’s usually “Schwag” weed, the seedy stemmy bush variety, which though stony is a bit of a waste due to the large amount of dry brittle leaf you have to pack a joint with just to get high. However, this shouldn’t concern you too much as Sheffield is also the home of one of the world’s favorite strains of hydro – Blueberry. It seems to me that the local Pakistani population has a monopoly over the Blueberry trade within the county. Anybody with enough nuts to not be scared to go up to them just has to go to a couple of the young guys who work the kebab shops on London road, Abbeydale Road, Queen’s Road or Ecclesall Road and ask them for some ‘help’. Try and not treat them like dealers, they’re usually guys who smoke a lot and have ‘mates’ who deal. You might have to wait a while, but if you insist on Blueberry and are willing to wait, you’ll soon be smoking the sweetest juiciest weed you’ve had in a while!

Marijuana prices: 20 Pounds for 3.2 grams (weed)

Marijuana brands: Blueberry

More information: Since smoking is out in clubs, most people use poppers or room freshening solvents to get high. These are readily available off the net and you’ll find a bottle floating about the pisser in most clubs where there’s students.

Middlesbrough, United Kingdom

Legislation: Cannabis is a Class C drug in Britain. It has the lowest penalties: a maximum of two years and/or unlimited fine for possession; five years and/or unlimited fine for trafficking.

It also includes liquid cannabis, cannabinol and cannabinol derivatives (THC) (as of Jan 29, 2004).

Law enforcement: When caught with small amounts for personal use, the pot will be compounded, and you will be released(!).

Although the cops here aren’t too bothered about possession (you get an on-the-spot warning & they nick your stash, bastards. If you’ve got a lot of previous warnings for possession, or they think you might be dealing then it can get more serious), if the cops think you’ve been smoking weed before driving you’ll be in a lot of trouble. Might be worth catching the tube instead.

Where to buy marijuana: N/A

Marijuana prices: hash – £7.50, £12.50 etc.
