Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5
Legislation: Smoking pot is widely tolerated in Germany especially among people who are younger than 40. The maximum of weed you can posses without having to fear prosecution is 3 grams in Baden-Wuerttemberg which is a State in Germany. However, if you get caught smoking pot by the police they will search you and arrest you depending on their mood and on how much they find. If they find more than 3grams then you may be considered a dealer and find yourself being prosecuted. If you are over 18 and have less than 3 grams the maximum penalty you will receive is 1 day in prison. If you are under 18 your parents or some guardian will have to come and pick you up.
Law enforcement: Police smokes weed also after work. But if they see you smoking weed or buying it, they will come and hassle you for sure.
Where to buy marijuana: In Freiburg there is one hotspot where most people will at first recommend you to buy weed. It is the park that’s right next to the Central Train Station where all the long-distance trains arrive and depart. I don’t know the name of the park right now but really you can’t miss it, it’s not more than a 1 to 2 minute walk from the station. It is located west of the station. There are always a bunch of strange looking people in the park. Go there and ask them carefully. Don’t go there with more than 2 people.
Otherwise, I would recommend you to ask students. Freiburg is a student city with a huge student population. You will see students everywhere around and your best bet is definitely to look for students who look like stoners and ask them. They will point you in the right direction. Also I can only highly recommend to make a few friends who are either students or local kids. They will hook you up.
Marijuana prices: Prices range from 7 to 10 Euros per gram.
Marijuana brands: Usually not many brands are available in Germany. But since Freiburg is somewhat close to the Swiss border there will be a small variety of weed. However, you can’t choose. You can only take what is offered. If you don’t like it, don’t take it. There will be more opportunities to find weed, so don’t worry. Also you should make sure that the weed is bud, the leaves won’t get you high.
More information: Again Freiburg is a student city and many of them are stoners or at least people who occasionally smoke weed. The population is over-average young in Freiburg, so there will be many opportunities to get hooked up!
