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

Possession, growing, distribution, and of course, consumption of Cannabis is illegal in Paris, even for personal use. However, if you possess very small amounts, you may be let off with a fine. 

Paris Marijuana Laws

Paris is still extremely stingy about its cannabis laws; it’s still illegal. 

That’s pretty sad for casual smokers who wanted to visit Paris and enjoy a couple of joints here and there. 

However, by the end of 2019, possession and consumption of very small amounts of Cannabis had been decriminalized.

While this is not fantastic news, because you can still be fined quite a hefty amount if the cops catch you with weed, at least you won’t be thrown into jail anymore! 

Law Enforcement 

Cannabis laws are strict and still not legal. So if the cops catch you smoking weed or hash out on the streets, they can fine you anywhere between 56 Euros to 1680 Euros (depending upon how much you are carrying, the circumstances, and what your intentions were). 

However, if you have less than 10 grams on Cannabis on you, it is more likely that you will have to pay a small fine, and you will be let off without any severe consequences. 

If you want to smoke in public, you should do so discreetly, without attracting any extra attention to yourself. However, since it is still illegal, it’s best not to take a chance and smoke it super crowded areas or in parks, where there are high chances of you getting caught by the cops. 

Cannabis Prices, Quality, and Types

Depending upon whom you are buying your Cannabis from, the prices can vary vastly. Of course, along with that the quality will also vary quite a lot, and that is a chance you will have to take if you are really desperate to score. Since there are no legal ‘cannabis clubs,’ dispensaries, or shops in Paris, it can be difficult for you to get Cannabis any other way. 

Prices of Cannabis

Generally, you can find Cannabis for 12 to 15 Euros for a gram, but you have to be lucky, and you have to get hold of the right seller. Otherwise, most tourists often end up paying exorbitant prices, like 20 Euros for a gram of weed. 

You will also find various kinds of hash being sold in Paris. Which the normal price is 50 Euros for one barette, or 60 Euros for 12 grams of normal quality hash, again, you have to be lucky. 

Most of the time, random sellers in Paris will try to sell you hash for even as high as 80 Euros, and even then, the quality can be quite poor. 

The only way to ensure that you get your hands on good quality weed is to know where to look and who to buy it from. 

Quality of Cannabis

The quality will greatly vary from dealer to dealer, place to place. There is no real way to guarantee that you will get good quality weed on your hands, because it is not legal in Paris, and you will have to find other ways to get hold of Cannabis. 

Types of Plant 

Since Cannabis is illegal in Paris, you will find very limited strains available in this city. Mostly, you will find local dealers selling you low-quality weed and hash, without too many choices being offered to you.

You take what you can get; you don’t have much of choice in Paris. 

There are just two ‘coffee shops’ in Paris, which will sell ‘legal weed,’ however, the THC content is less than 0.2%. Hence, it is colloquially known as ‘le light weed.’ 

Cannabis Culture in Paris

Cannabis is illegal in Paris, whether it is done privately or in public. However, you might find locals or even tourists enjoying the lone joint or two every once in a while. 

Once evening falls in Paris, you will find the more adventurous ‘dealers’ coming out and offering weed and hash to tourists. While the hash quality is always better here, it is still quite low-quality hash, and tourists are likely to get ripped off. 

There were two little ‘coffee shops’ which opened in Paris and sold ‘legal weed,’ which was extremely light weed. However, these places were swiftly shut down due to the strict cannabis laws in Paris. 

If you want to smoke Cannabis while in Paris, you will have to find some really good dealers and smoke in private. 

How many people smoke weed in Paris?

Even though it is technically illegal, you will still find people enjoying weed and hash in Paris. The quality is questionable since there are no legal dispensaries or shops where you can buy good Cannabis from. 

However, you will find a lot of locals making a mixture of hash and tobacco and smoking this when they get a chance to. 

There is also the common ‘cigar sized joints’ made almost purely of hash, which can be quite potent. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is buying weed in the parks safe?

Any form of Cannabis and anything related to it is completely illegal in Paris. If you are caught by the police buying weed in the parks, you might face a severe penalty, or even more. That being said, there are very few options for buying Cannabis in Paris, and you might have to resort to street dealers. 

Can you smoke hash on the street?

Parisian police can be quite temperamental and very strict. If you are caught smoking hash on the street, you could be penalized for it, since it is illegal to do so. However, if you are not creating a scene and have a very small quantity on you, you might just be sent off with a warning and a fine. 

What happens if you get caught with marijuana?

The best-case scenario is, you get a slap on the wrist, and you might have to pay a fine of around 200 Euros. However, depending upon the quantity of weed you are caught with, the circumstances, and your intentions, you might even have to pay a larger fine of up to 1680 Euros. 

Is it easy to get weed in Paris?

Technically, the only way you can score weed in Paris is to ask the locals or deal with street dealers. There are no medical dispensaries or legal weed shops, so it can be quite difficult to get your hands on weed in Paris legally. However, you will find a lot of local dealers ready to sell you weed and hash- but for very hiked prices.

        • Greenie FTW!! Vacationing in Paris (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 PARIS! 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
