Cannabis is illegal. However, a small quantity for personal use has been decriminalized. There are plenty of coffee shops in Groningen where you can easily buy and even smoke cannabis without any legal trouble!

Groningen Cannabis Laws 

What many people often don’t know is that cannabis is still illegal in the Netherlands and Groningen. However, a small amount for personal possession and use has recently been decriminalized. This means that you can have up to 5 grams of weed on you- and if the cops catch you, they can confiscate it, but they cannot arrest you for it. 

Locals have what is known as a “Weed Pass” which allows them to show their ID and legally buy cannabis from the ‘coffee shops’ around town. However, tourists might find it harder to do so. 

Law Enforcement 

Although the laws are strict, the cops will generally turn a blind eye if you are carrying less than 5 grams of cannabis on you, or smoking inside the premises of a coffee shop. If you are caught smoking in public, however, you will find yourself in far more trouble. It is best to avoid smoking in public to avoid trouble with the law. 

You can also buy just about 5 grams of cannabis from these coffee shops, or even buy a pre-rolled joint to smoke later on at home. 

Cannabis Culture in Groningen

Although many people are under the impression that anything goes with cannabis in the Netherlands, this is just not true. Although cannabis is tolerated in Groningen, it does not mean that everyone consumes it or is tolerant of smoking in public places.

There are plenty of coffee shops where you can enjoy a joint with other locals and tourists. However, smoking in public is not something that you should do, just out of respect for the law.
