Tolerance Level Guesstimation [1= very illegal with severe punishment, 10= complete legalization] – 6

Although cannabis is mainly illegal in Vienna, it has been decriminalized in some instances, such as for personal use or medical use. 

Vienna Cannabis Laws 

Marijuana users rejoice! The laws surrounding marijuana in Vienna are not extremely strict, but not too relaxed either. The most important thing that you need to know is that cannabis for personal use, medical use, and scientific use is decriminalized. 

However, this does not mean that you can get off entirely scot-free in case the cops catch you. In Vienna, you will be offered a rehabilitation program, or you might need to undergo therapy or a medical evaluation. As long as you comply, the cops will not put you in jail. 

Sounds fair, right?

Well, this applies to locals mostly. However, if you are a tourist and you are caught with less than 5 grams of weed, in all probability, you will be fined and let off with a warning. The warning will expire after a year, anyway. 

It is best to comply with the police to avoid creating a scene and getting arrested.

A funny thing about the cannabis laws in Vienna is that it is legal to sell cannabis seeds as well as plants, as long as the plant is in a vegetative state. However, as soon as the bud is separated from the plant, it becomes illegal to sell! 

Even passing a joint from one person to another- without a prior transaction, can be considered selling and thus illegal! 

Law Enforcement 

Since possession of cannabis for personal use has been decriminalized, the police in Vienna will not arrest someone if they have a small quantity on them. It is possible that they might ask you to join a rehabilitation program or get a medical evaluation. As long as you comply without creating an issue, you should be fine. 

As for tourists, as long as you have less than 5 grams on you, the cops will merely fine you, or let you off with a warning, but will not arrest you. 

Be careful not to smoke in public- this can get you into trouble. 

Cannabis Prices, Quality, and Types 

Since medical marijuana is legal, you might be able to get your hands on good quality weed if you have a prescription. Otherwise, you will have to rely on street dealers. The quality might not be excellent if you buy from them. 

Prices of Cannabis 

Typically, you should be able to get a gram of cannabis for 10 Euros. However, if you buy your weed from street dealers, there is a good chance of you getting ripped off. They might try and sell you less than a gram, or sell you poor quality weed. 

If you have a prescription, you might be able to get good quality cannabis from the marijuana dispensaries. 

Quality of Weed 

The quality of weed you get depends really upon where you are getting it from. As for street dealers, they will mostly try and sell you brown weed, which is not significant in quality, but it does get you high. You will find better quality hash so that you can opt for that instead. 

Types of Plant 

You will find common weed and hash in Vienna. However, you will find a better variety of strains in the marijuana dispensaries. 

Where can you get weed in Vienna?

Just like any other European city, you will find plenty of dealers around the train stations, subways, parks, etc. Some places you can explore are MuseumsQuartier, Westbahnhof, and Praterstern. 

Stadtpark is also another place where you will find dealers roaming about. Most of the time, they are quite easy to spot. They might perceive your interest in buying weed and approach you first. 

You can always ask some locals to help you as well. Many young people and students in Vienna smoke weed and hash, and they will be willing to help you out. 

Another place where you will easily find a few dealers is a nightclub called Flex. This is located near the Schottenring metro station. You will find either black or Arab guys here who are looking to sell. Be careful of the quality and be willing to negotiate. Of course, keep in mind that the quality of weed will not be particularly excellent.

        • Greenie FTW!! Vacationing in Vienna (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 VIENNA! 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

    I followed his instructions and sincerely I was skeptical at first but he finally showed up on time. I will definitely be ordering from them more often because he is the only reliable local plug you can trust so far.
