Geneva Cannabis Laws 

When it comes to an understanding the cannabis laws in Geneva, even the locals sometimes find themselves in quite a confusion! 

Cannabis is illegal in Geneva, although there is speculation that it might become legal pretty soon. As of now, though, it remains illegal.

That being said, a small quantity of cannabis for personal use has been decriminalized. This just means that if the cops catch you with a small amount, they might simply fine you for it, but will not arrest you. 

If you have larger quantities, however, you can be arrested. 

Law Enforcement 

The cops in Geneva are usually more interested in catching the dealers than private users. If you have a gram or two of weed on you, the cops might confiscate the weed and fine you something around 100 CHF, but they won’t arrest you for it, as it has been decriminalized. 

However, it is illegal to smoke it in public. If you must, try and find a discreet, secluded place to enjoy your marijuana, rather than doing it right out in the open where you can get caught. 

Cannabis Prices, Quality, and Types

In general, the prices of cannabis in Geneva can be slightly higher compared to other cities. There is also a stronger possibility of you getting ripped off by the street dealers, but if you are desperate to get your hands on some cannabis, you might not have a choice. You will get a gram of weed for around 10 CHF. However, street dealers typically don’t sell by the gram in Geneva. Instead, they will try to sell you weed worth 50, which usually amounts to no more than 3 to 4 grams only. It is a rip-off, definitely, but you might not have a choice. 

If you are lucky, you will end up with high-quality buds.

You might have better luck with Moroccan hash here- it will cost you 6 for a gram, and should give you quite an amazing high. 

Some of the most common types of plants you will find here are Moroccan hash, indoor and outdoor-grown weed, White Widow, Northern Lights, and White Russian. There are, of course, other varieties also available. 

Where can you get cannabis in Geneva?

The parks are always a good place to run into street dealers. Parc de St Jean on Quai De Sujet is a popular place to explore for buying weed; however, visit the area only after dark. Be careful, because the cops roam around this area looking for dealers to catch. 

Other than that, you can sniff out the common places where people smoke weed here. Try and find some young, friendly locals to help you out.
