Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2

Legislation: Import, export, send, make, buy, sell, expose to sell, offer, prescript, keep […] or deal drugs, even if for free: 5 to 15 years of jail and R$ 500 to R$ 1500 fine.

Although pro-Marijuana campaigns are ongoing in Brazil, Marijuana is illegal in all Brazil, and so is any related action: smoking, cultivating, purchasing, etc. However, there is substituting mandatory rehabilitation for users.

Law Enforcement: Police are intolerant, but can be persuaded with a good incentive…. or, as our Brazilian reporter said:” always watch for the police. They’ll want to find you doing something to get some money out of you!”.

So, to sum things up – the police are quite eager to put their hands on you and lock you up, but it is nothing a few American dollars cant fix.

Where to Buy Marijuana in Sao Paulo: Weed is not legal in Brazil but you can buy it almost anywhere. You should also visit the “favelas” – once inside a “favela” you can find weed in almost any street or “viela”. But that’s not a safe place at all to buy or consume, although you’ll see a lot of people doing it…). A safer way to purchase would be asking other tourists who have already been in Brazil for a while.

Sao Paulo Marijuana Prices: Notice that 1 Real= 2.3 US Dollar= 3Euro HASH 10 to 30 Reais a gram SKUNK. 20 to 50 Reais a gram WEED. 1 to 3.50 Reais a gram

    I know three points in Sao Paulo to buy Marijuana: 1. Masp, on Paulista Avenue (just talk with young people around). 2. Primavera’s favela on east zone (it’s safe, but the better to do is give the money to a young guy and he buy for you). 3. Vila Prudente’s favela on east zone (like a Primavera’s favela).
    Almost every “favela” on Sao Paulo is safe if you know some guy around (or make a friend… brazilian people are receptive with foreign people).

    Another way to buy marijuana is go to a park (Ibirapuera, Villa Lobos, by example) and talk or make a friend with youg people (the tax about smoke weeds in young people in Sao Paulo is high).

      please ignore this last comment…. absolutely bullshit.. never go in a favela in sp… NEVER!! yes, people are friendly, yes it could be safe… but thats a very stupid thing to do.. giving money for someone to buy??? yes, if you want to be ripped off, loose your money, and not smoking your ganja. MASP… hahaha, sounds extremely silly… its a museum in the middle of av. paulista, full of cops everywhere… besides, the quality of the grass is shit…

      best way to smoke.. go to hip, cool spots in town.. people smoke a lot of weed in sp… and, yes, they are friendly.

      avoid the favelas, and avoid the police.. both will give you a hard time and ruin your trip.


    If you go to Cidade Universitária, which is the campus of the University of Sao Paulo, and you ask anyone how to score some weed, they will give you instructions like how to get it in a little favela that has an entrance to it right in the campus next to the University Hospital – Hospital Universitário.

    The safest place to get weed in SP is going to the bars in front of any major University as FMU, Unip, Anhembi, USP, PUC, etc and ask for the students. They are usually cool and it’s way safer than the favelas. At the favelas you will risk your life for a low quality bud while with students you will make friends and have a high quality bud. Hope it helps. Always have less than 5g on you and play as a addicted only that nobody will ever arrest you.
