Milan, Italy

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

Legislation: In Italy you cannot sell, buy, smoke or grow cannabis. Soft and hard drugs are the same for Italian law. You must be very carefull if you smoke in public.

You will not go in jail for one joint but your driving license and your passport can be suspended. Probably actual left government will be more tollerant and there will be no problem if you have cannabis for personal use.

Law enforcement: Police, Carabinieri, Guardia di Finanza, Polizia Locale, (non ever in uniform, pay attention!) are almost averywhere in big cities as Milan.

a recent report we received argues that: “It is Illegal, but sold in some store, and parks. Hash, and marijuana are very tolerated.”

Where to buy marijuana: Marijuana is hard to find if you do not know poeple but hash is easy to find.

In the afternoon go to Park Sempione just behind the Sforzesco’s Castle. Look for North African guys alone under a tree or on a bench and ask for “fumo” (hash). Pay attention to policemen not in uniform and hidden cameras (a lot in the park).

a recent report added: “in parks look for young north african, or italian young fellas who can provide hash, and the herb practically upon demand.”

Milan marijuana prices: About 10 euros for 1 gram.

Brands: Moroccan. Quality may vary (nothing to see with Amsterdam quality).

and a recent report added: ” Fumo (hash) can be Nero (black), Cioccolato (chocolate), morocco (also brown, least good)”
