Sunauli, Nepal

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3

Legislation: marijauana and hashish used to be legal in nepal till the late 70s – that is why it was heaven for hippies in the 60s and 70s. Nowadays Cultivating, selling, dealing and possessing is illegal but usually nobody cares.

Law enforcement: Non existant for that matter.

Where to buy marijuana: Having some time to kill, we asked for some hash in a cheapy-hotel about 500m into nepal, where some of the tourist buses to Kathmandu leave from in the evening. The manager was delighted to oblige us!

another reporter added: “Keep an eye out for Bang/Bhang lassiis. Yoghurt based drinks stuffed full of weed. But be careful, there may be sufficient quantities to knock you out.”

Marijuana prices: $1 a gram

Marijuana brands: Nepali hash

More information: Surprisingly relaxing place to score and smoke! We sat on the roof of the hotel where we bought, sipping team and watching the locals go about their business in the fields. Took the edge of the 10 hour bus journey to Kathmandu, I can tell you.
