Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal with severe punishment, 10= complete legalization] – 3

Cannabis and all related activities are completely illegal in Kiev. There is strict punishment if you are caught with even a small amount of cannabis. However, ever since 2019, the process of legalizing medical marijuana has begun. 

Kiev Cannabis Laws

The cannabis laws in Kiev are stringent. In general, the cannabis culture has still not developed, and most people are relatively new to it. In case you are caught with cannabis, the police might arrest you, or they might expect a bribe. It can go either way, actually, but there is no guarantee of which means it will go. It depends solely on the cops. 

In case the cops do decide to arrest you for possession, smoking, or worse, selling cannabis, you can face imprisonment for up to 20 years! That’s pretty harsh! 

However, you should also know that it is not too challenging to try and bribe the cops. You will just have to try your luck. 

Law Enforcement 

When it comes to cannabis, the cops, as well as the locals, can be pretty unfriendly. Since cannabis is so very new, people are not yet used to the idea and think of it as equal to hard drugs. In case you get caught with cannabis in Kiev, you might be able to bribe your way out of it. In other cases, you face a genuine risk of imprisonment.

The best thing to do is not carry too much cannabis on you, and if possible, altogether avoid taking any amount, as the risk factor is just too high. It is also essential to ensure that you don’t smoke in public. If you must, try and smoke indoors, or find a secluded place in public and always look out for the cops if you are planning to smoke. 

Cannabis Prices, Quality, and Types

In Kiev, dealers usually sell weed in Match Boxes. These typically contain about 5 grams of weed. The quality of weed depends upon the dealer to dealer. In all honesty, there is a high chance of tourists getting ripped off by dealers. It is always a good idea to try out a little bit of the weed before buying it. It is also best not to buy too much at once. Stick to a matchbox. 

For regular quality weed, you might have to pay around $20 for a Match Box (5 grams). However, for Hydroponic, the costs rise to $20 for just a gram. 

Finding hash will be next to impossible, as it is not grown in Ukraine. However, there are a few people who do produce hash, and it can cost you $30 for a gram! 

You will find a few different strains of cannabis if you try and look hard enough. But since the laws are so stringent in Kiev, it can be challenging to come across good weed. 

Where can you get cannabis in Kiev?

At one point in time, people used to rely on buying their weed from dealers near the metro stations. However, nowadays, it has become increasingly difficult to find good dealers in this area. Police surveillance has also increased, making it harder to buy from street dealers safely. 

It can be complicated for tourists to find weed in Kiev, so it is advisable to make friends with some young locals who can help you find weed or dealers. Ask around the bars and pubs. They might help you out. You can also just keep an eye out near parks and metro stations, but the quality of weed from these dealers is dubious.
