Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal, 10= completely legal] – 2.5
Cannabis is completely illegal, and any activities related to cannabis is punishable by law. However, if you are caught with a small amount of cannabis on you, you might simply be fined and left alone.
Any soft drug-related activity, be it simple possession, growing, or smoking of cannabis is very illegal in Marseille. If the cops catch you doing so in public, you will not only have to pay a fine (anywhere between 56 Euros to 1680 Euros), but you may also face jail time.
Now, over the years, the cops and courts have become slightly more relaxed about this. In case you are caught with a very small amount of cannabis on you, you may simply be fined, or let off with a warning. However, if you have a large quantity or are caught smoking it in public, or distributing, you might face much more serious consequences.
