Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal, 10= complete legalization] – 4

Cannabis is illegal- however, consumption is legal, but possession is unlawful! A small amount will cost you a hefty fine, but a more significant amount or selling or growing can land you in jail. 

Krakow Cannabis Laws 

The cannabis laws are a little confusing here- as possession is illegal, but consumption is not. Many often wonder how you can consume cannabis without first possessing it! 

Possession of any amount, even 3 grams of cannabis, can land you in court. Here, the judge will decide whether the amount was for personal use or distribution. In most cases, the charges are dropped if you had less than 3 grams on you. However, for possession of 5 grams, you could spend three months in jail! 

Growing and selling cannabis are grave matters and can get you into jail immediately, so be careful. 

Although medical marijuana has been made legal since 2017, it is complicated to get cannabis, as it is mostly imported, and patients can wait up to months for their prescribed marijuana. 

Law Enforcement 

In general, cops are quite strict and unforgiving when it comes to cannabis. They think of marijuana to be on the same scale as any other hard drug, so the punishment is also severe. 

Even if you see locals and other tourists smoking openly on the streets, it is best not to take part in it yourself. If the cops catch you, they can immediately arrest you. Make sure you are not carrying more than a gram or so of cannabis on you. It is best to avoid carrying anything on you altogether, as it is not worth spending a few nights in the lockup for this offense. 

Cannabis Prices, Quality, and Types 

A gram of weed will cost you around 10 Euros. However, if you are a tourist, there is almost a guarantee that you will be ripped off. You may be given a lesser quantity or charged a higher price, but it is not much you can do about it.

You will get hash, too, occasionally, but it is difficult to find since most of it is imported from Africa. Even weed is hard to get actually, but not as tricky as the hash is. 

The quality of cannabis is average- nothing great but nothing too bad either. It will get you high enough if that’s what you’re looking for. 

Where can you can cannabis in Krakow?

The cannabis laws are quite harsh, so it can be challenging to get your hands on weed in the city. It works out best if you know some locals who can help you out because a tourist can find it overwhelming to get weed. 

The only thing you can do is keep an eye out for dealers- they will spot you and approach you if they sense you are looking to buy. Other than that, you can simply ask some locals or the student crowd, as they almost always know where the dealers are. The parks, pubs and strip clubs around the city are where you will mostly find the dealers hanging about, but then again, you’d have to be lucky actually to find them easily. A few spots you can try are Art Club Bledne Kolo, where reggae is held every Saturday night (increasing your possibility to find some decent weed). You can also check out Wielopole street. You will see locals or tourists smoking here and can simply walk up to them and ask them for help!
