Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal, 10= completely legal] – 4
Cannabis is completely illegal in Toulouse, however, in small quantities, it is tolerated.
The important thing to know first is that cannabis laws are very strict in France, so marijuana is technically illegal- both in public as well as for private use.
That being said, many young people in Toulouse, locals as well as tourists, smoke weed quite openly.
If the cops catch you smoking weed (and you are a tourist), you may get a slap on the wrist and be sent off with a warning. In other cases, you might have to pay a fine of a few hundred Euros. However, the punishment is usually not too severe.
Keep in mind that if you are caught with a large quantity of weed, or you are found distributing it, you may face dire consequences in this case.
Prices and Quality of Cannabis
In Toulouse, you will get a gram of weed for around 15 to 20 Euros. However, a 10g bar of hash can cost you 60 to 80 Euros!
Again, depending upon where you are getting your weed from, you might end up with really good quality cannabis or low-quality bud, which is not even worth smoking.
I hope luck is on your side!
Where can you get cannabis in Toulouse?
Unfortunately, due to the strict laws against cannabis in France, it can be quite difficult to get your hands on cannabis in Toulouse. Unless you know of a good dealer, finding good weed can be near impossible in this city.
You might find a few dealers around the area of Arnaud Bernard district, near the university. Other than that, you will also find various dealers here and there around metro stations, on the streets, but more often than not, the quality of cannabis they sell are extremely poor and not worth buying.
