Cannabis Laws in Italy:

Cannabis laws here are very much like the ones in other members of the European Union. In short, it is an illegal substance and it is considered illegal to possess, consume, grow or sell weed in Italy. However, they have  made some progresses as they have decriminalized marijuana for medical consumption and in some cases for religious use.

Cannabis for personal use is not a big threat for the recreational smokers. If you get caught by the Italian authorities in possession of low quantities (below 5-10g), then you would be subject to a fine. The highest threat for a persona consumer is that he or she would get his documents suspended (passport or driving license), assuming that the one caught in offence is not rude or aggressive. Cultivation and sale of the herb will result in more harsh consequences such as imprisonment. The punishment will be dependent on certain circumstances, such as previous criminal history and quantities of marijuana.

Interestingly, a small number of businesses has the right to sell cannabis for medical purposes, but for the ones thinking to invest in the industry – medical cannabis is heavily regulated by the national authorities.

Just recently, Italy has allowed the sale of high-CBD cannabis across the country. It can be obtained from stores – tobacconist and general ones.


Where to Get Weed in Rome:

For the ones looking to buy the sort of weed that gives you the actual mental high (THC cannabis), then you’d need to find a dealer. The good news is that Rome is a huge city, with loads of tourists, so finding weed is not so hard. Here are a few good places to start looking:

  • The San Lorenzo districtis a full of dealers, that will also not rip you off. It is mainly a student district, but if you walk around you are bound to see some Moroccans or Albanians who will sell you weed. Generally if you make eye contact with them, they will approach you and say ‘fumo’ which means smoke in Italian. The price is usually 10 euros per gram and the quality is alright, but nothing to write home about.
  • Piazza di Santa Caterina della Rotais another good place to get some weed. Similarly like everywhere in Rome, be on the lookout for guys that look like they sell weed and approach them. Be nice and don’t worry to much even if you ask someone who is not a deal they might point you in the right direction.

As always be careful when buying on the street. It is illegal in Italy and the people selling it are theoretically criminals.
