Cannabis is still illegal in Edinburgh, but the people and police are open to marijuana which means you can’t get into serious trouble for smoking, or possessing small quantities. If you get caught with up to a small amount for personal use the police will most likely loot your herb without any further consequences. If they find large quantities of weed on you, then you can expect a further process and trouble. You can face a prison sentence of up to 14 years.
