Law Enforcement: The police are usually quite friendly and will generally not disturb you as long as you are not causing trouble, but of course, this is not a strict rule. If you do get caught, 2 things can happen:

–>You can be fined and possibly forced to stay in jail overnight.

–>or the cops may just confiscate your weed and let you go.

Where to buy marijuana in Lisbon: Downtown, near the Baixa (where all the tourists go, & with good reason – it’s delightful), go to Praחa Martim Moniz. There are African guys hanging out there, sitting on the wall by the oleander bushes. I didn’t even need to ask around, they asked first: “queres fumar?” (do you want to smoke, pronounced “keresh fum’).

I also got approached on the main street going up from Martim Moniz, rua da Palma (you won’t miss it – it’s the street with the tram lines: a trip on the old trams being a must for any visit to Lisbon)

I have very rarely bought on the street, but it seemed safe enough & not at all seedy, though the area around there is rather run-down. There seem to be no shortage of dealers, all perfectly normal-looking young black men (some with the rasta look).

There were cops around the area, including a van load round the back of the market on the square, but they are clearly not bothered about the trade.

DO NOT buy pot from the streets, especially on the city center. It is rammed of pickpockets that sell fakes, and you will be surprised how hordes of them come to talk to you and by any means try to sell the supposed marijuana, hash, pills…. whatever, or finally pick your wallet.

Brands: Even though marijuana is very common in portugal, it is rarely found as actual bud. Instead, you often have to buy hash. There are several important names to keep in mind when buying in portugal:

Ganza – General name for marijuana

Charro – Joint

Bongo – Bong

Erva – This is the actual plant. Price varies according to dealer/quality.

Shamon – Low quality hash, very cheap, very shitty…

Pollen – Medium quality hash – usually about 5€ a gram Bolota/Paki – High quality hash – about 10€ a gram

Depending on who you ask, these names may be different, but they tend to be the most used.

Lisbon Marijuana Prices: A better deal than the Dutch coffee shops: 10 € for 2 or so grams of excellent hash – fragrant & putty-like, up there with the best I’ve had. 10 € deals seem to be the norm.

More information: As you can mostly find hash here joint’s have to be rolled using tobacco. If you smoke cigarrettes, and want to use the tobacco from those, I find the best are lucky strikes and the blue “portugues suave”. If you prefer to use rolling tobacco, go for either drum or samson.

    the thing in lisbon is: don’t buy in the street. sometimes is not bad stuff, but usually someone will trick you, specially if you don’t speak the language. Given this, is easy to find stuff in lisbon, mostly hash. You just need to know someone who sells, and have a regular dealer or dealers. maybe by social networks, maybe asking in hostels, something like that…walking randomly in the street and being approached by some dudes who ask if you want something just doesn’t work. And even i got tricked once or twice. still you have a lot of sellers in lisbon, a lot.
