Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5
Legislation: open pot smoking is not legally permitted, although Luxembourg’s courts are more permissive than those in the diminutive nation’s neighbours.
Law enforcement: if you are a simple smoker, just don’t be too obvious, don’t smoke near older people…they like to call the cops if they see you…younger people are cool
Where to buy marijuana: the “Grund” is probably still no1 for the nightlife, but you wont find weed there anymore, if you want some weed go to the “Gare” (train station) there you will actually find lots of weird guys (mosty black), they’ll get you everything, not only weed…
another reporter added: “Go into the park at the city center and just ask around. You are sure to see some stoners smoking and someone will point you in the right direction, just ask. Stay away from the train station, you will get ripped off and the police hang around there.”
additional info states: The only place to find ( not always ) weed in the “Grund” is in the reggae bar “Jamaican bar” if there r young smokers who can help you to find some.
If you go to the city center in “Hamilius” (there where r all the bus stations) u can go ask to young people in front of the Post . There r a lot of cameras in this area so the deal will mostly take place somewhere else in the city.
Marijuana prices: 50 euro for about 5 grams
or 4-5g for 25 euro U can try to get 4g for 20 (they won’t sell u for less than 20 euro except u know them so buy only 1 joint or 1g in a bag is not posible)
Marijuana brands: mostly duch brands,and mostly weed and hash from maastricht( city in Holland ) or Amsterdam but also home-made weed and hash which is often good quality too
WeBeHigh City Tale:
When it comes to smoking bud and boozing, Luxembourg proves that size doesn’t matter.
One of the world’s tiniest countries with a population about 30 times smaller than Los Angeles, Luxembourg’s 430,000 residents still topped a 50-nation ranking in alcohol consumption.
On average, they are also some of the most prolific drug users in Europe. Statistics on the number of regular cannabis smokers indicate that if you attend a professional soccer game at the 4,900-capacity stadium in Luxembourg City, the capital, you could find at least 49 locals ready and willing to fire up at half time.
Of course, open pot smoking is not legally permitted, although Luxembourg’s courts are more permissive than those in the diminutive nation’s neighbours. Nestled in a crook between France, Germany and Belgium, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg suffered ages of domination by larger countries. The end result is a proud national motto, “We want to remain what we are,” as well as a multicultural society that speaks Luxembourgish, French, German and English. Foreigners are not only accepted, they comprise 30 percent of the country’s population.
Luxembourg also boasts one of the world’s highest standards of living, which may explain why so many residents frequently enjoy a good joint. Information on soft drug prices is not widely available, but they are likely in line with those in neighbouring Belgium: around six dollars American for a gram of weed or hash. The Grund, or lower town, is Luxembourg City’s centre of nightlife and probably the best bet for finding soft drugs if you do not have a local connection. The party scene, however, is largely reflective of Luxembourg’s size.
“If you want to go out and see things happening, then it has to be Wednesday. This is the day that people in Luxembourg have nightlife,” said George, a Greek who lived in Luxembourg City. “Also try Friday and Saturday. All the other days Luxembourg seems an abandoned city.” His pub suggestions included Scotts in the Grund, as well as The Tube and Arts Café in the upper town. Nathalie, a Luxembourg native, suggested visitors check out Prime Time in Luxembourg City proper, Marx in Luxembourg-Gare, and a disco called Didgeridoo in Luxembourg-Hollerich.
After smoking, visitors feeling the effects may also enjoy a tour of Luxembourg City’s “Casemates,” a 17-kilometer labyrinth of tunnels that once were part of a formidable fortress.
The country hosts a number of festivals throughout the year that will liven up a visit. The best party is National Day on June 23, which is as big for Luxembourg as New Year’s Eve. Early March is another fun season with the arrival of Carnival and Bürgsonndeg (Bonfire Day). Octave in late April climaxes with a parade led by the royal family, while Schueberfouer delivers fun in August. The wine festivals in the Moselle Valley to the east of Luxembourg City also kick off in August and last through November.
In 1996, Luxembourg decriminalized soft drug use and even went as far as suggesting adoption of the lenient Dutch policies throughout all the “Benelux” countries, an economic union of Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. A Luxembourg government spokesman said it was “ready to reconsider its policies with regard to cannabis.”
Drug advocacy group NORML said drug use is still treated as a criminal offence.
“Individual use and/or acquisition is penalized with three months to three years [in jail] and a fine,” a NORML report said, adding that the court can force blood or urine tests on suspects. “Refusal to submit to these tests carries a heavy fine and/or imprisonment.”
But the organization notes that the law on paper is stricter than what is employed by authorities. “In practice, if possession is for personal use, a warning is normally issued if the case involves a small quantity and no aggravating circumstances are present,” NORML said.
A published study of Luxembourg’s drug policies noted that “although the law does not differentiate between ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ drugs, in principle cannabis users are not charged by public prosecutors.”
In early 2001, the country’s parliament began work to officially update laws so that drug use is subject to only a fine.
