Legislation: Posession of under 500g of cannabis is punishable with 6 months to 2 years in prison, and/or a fine of around INR 100,000.

Law enforcement: Only 10% of those caught are actually convicted, and ‘baksheesh’ (bribe) will get you out of a sticky situation.Some cops may attempt to target foreigners purchasing weed.

Where to buy marijuana: There’s only bhang (low quality marijuana leaves, 100% legal) in Haridwar. There are some beggars selling bhang on the bridges on the ganga.
