Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal with severe punishment, 10= complete legalization] –8

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.

    • I have used Adkin (weedontime@gmailc0m) at least 3-4 times and every time it has been top notch. He is the best local plug you can find around. He is very pleasant, friendly and fast. He is a lifesaver.
      He sells top shelf WEED and other stuffs at moderate prices. I will always recommend this guy when people ask me my ” go-to”. All you have to do is follow his instructions.
      Just send him an email and I bet you will come back for more once you finish what you bought because the quality is incredible.

  • Greenie FTW!! Vacationing in Groningen (1st time) from California & not being able to bring organic anxiety medication posed a huge problem on day one for a particular person in our group – and still a smaller problem for the rest of us. I’ve never gotten weed from an online forum… seems super sketchy – but I thought I’d try anyways. I e-mailed Greenie ( local420delivery@yahoo com ) and within less than ONE HOUR all of our problems were solved. Of course prices were affordable – BUT THE BUD WAS JUST AS GOOD!!! I’m telling you —- strait chronic. IN GRONINGEN! Greenie e-mailed me back ASAP, had a great way of getting me what I needed and even threw in some roll papers and a blunt for good business! So what did I do?? – called him again. Went through the sack another 1 oz time (haha typical) and needed more, so Greenie pulled through yet again. AND WITH MORE ROLL PAPERS!!! Greenie feels like my neighborhood “guy” – trustworthy and professional. I think some posts here are from unreliable vendors trying to rip off people, cuz you can tell this guy isn’t trying to rip anyone off – he’s actually running a legit business. E-MAIL GREENIE ( local420delivery@yahoo com ) IF YOU’RE DEBATING IT, cuz I DID & I WAS IRIE IN ONE HOUR!! XD
