Saint Petersburg Cannabis Laws

Compared to many other European countries, Russia is far more liberal when it comes to cannabis. Although cannabis is entirely illegal in Saint Petersburg, as long as you carry 6 grams or less on you, it is only considered an administrative offense and not a criminal offense. In these cases, you will have to pay a fine, but you won’t be arrested. In some cases, up to 20-30 grams of cannabis is also decriminalized- so you will have to pay a hefty fine but no imprisonment.

Smoking, cultivation, selling, and growing cannabis is entirely illegal. 

Law Enforcement 

In general, the cops are wholly corrupt and easy to bribe- so if you do get caught with a few grams of marijuana on you, you can bribe your way out of it. The main thing to remember is that you will probably have to pay quite a substantial bribe, so be ready for that. 

It is best to be inconspicuous when it comes to your cannabis consumption in Saint Petersburg. Although the locals won’t care much if you are smoking, you have to make sure you are not being blatant about it or creating a nuisance. As for the cops- they have a habit of stopping anyone and asking for a drug test. So if you get caught- you will be fined. In case you are carrying a large quantity on you, you can even risk arrest. 

Cannabis Prices, Quality, and Types

The price of cannabis per gram is usually higher here than in most other countries. On top of that, even the quality isn’t that great, so it’s quite a rip-off. If you do want top-quality weed, you’ll have to shell out for a significant amount for it.

Depending upon how much you are willing to pay, you can end up with really high-quality weed, or really low-quality ones. It also depends upon your dealer. It helps to have some local contacts who can help you get the good stuff.
