Cannabis Law in Vietnam:
Any activity regarding cannabis is strictly illegal and very regulated by law enforcers in Vietnam. You can end up in a serious trouble doing anything with cannabis by the laws. The thing with Vietnamese police and system, in general, is that it’s not working well and people are underpaid. If police catch you with any amount of weed on you, be ready to get them a big bribe as they will usually ask for it. The country has a big problem with opium and stronger drugs, so they’re not focused so much on people who smoke marijuana.
Where to Get Cannabis in Hanoi:

Your best bet is to visit Hoan Kiem district and get a motorbike or regular taxi drive. Many drivers will have weed or know someone who can hook you up with the right person. The most convenient time to look for weed is afternoon as police controls are regular during the daytime. If you’re a tourist, then you should probably book a room at any backpacker hostel, and you will most like get your hands at decent cannabis there.

Cannabis prices vary, but in general, you can hardly get a scaled amount of weed. You can get a pack of cigarettes filled with cannabis for $5.
