Cannabis laws in France

Despite the fact that France is one of the countries with the highest percentage of marijuana consumption in Europe, cannabis is still illegal. If you are caught with a small quantity of weed or hash on you, you can expect a fine of about 150-200 euros. Selling, growing and trafficking cannabis are serious offences and can get you in a lot of trouble, even jail.

In recent years France has been becoming more tolerant towards marijuana. In 2016 the punishments were severely dropped, and nowadays it is almost unheard of to go to prison for possessing marijuana. There is also legal medicinal marijuana in France, in the form of drug using cannabanoids.
