Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal, 10= fully legal] – 4
Cannabis and any related activities remain illegal in Nantes, although the laws have become less strict when it comes to possession of a small amount. You cannot grow, distribute, smoke, or possess cannabis in public.
Till just a few years ago, the cannabis laws were so stringent that you could be sent to jail for possession of only a few grams. However, over the years, the police have realized that they have much bigger fish to fry. As a tourist, if you are caught with a few grams of weed on you, you might be given a warning or even fined a few hundred Euros, but that’s about it.
Sounds terrible, right?
Well, it’s better than getting arrested for a few grams!
Of course, you have to be extremely cautious when it comes to smoking in public. If you are caught smoking marijuana, the consequences may include a fine and some jail time, or worse, depending upon the cop who catches you.
Better to stay safe and just smoke at home.
Price and Quality of Cannabis
You should be able to buy cannabis for around 10 Euros a gram. However, the price may vary according to your dealer’s choice.
However, the quality of the weed can be quite suspicious. You need to be careful who you are buying your weed from. If it looks or smells funny, it’s best to just not waste your Euros on them. You’ll find other dealers.
Where can you buy cannabis in Nantes?
If you are a tourist, you might face a difficult time in finding the dealers who will sell you some weed. Unfortunately, even though many peoples smoke it, not many sell it.
You will have to look around for young black or Arab men around the train stations and metro stations. These guys usually sell weed. However, the quality can be dubious.
