Weed Laws in Turkey:

Any activity regarding cannabis in Turkey is strictly forbidden. However, around 30% of Istanbul’s population (the most populated Turkish city), is smoking weed. Marijuana is not decreminalized in the country at all and if you get caught in possession or smoking, it is highly likely that you will be fined or/and even taken to prison. However, if you are a tourist you can expect slightly different consequences. Bribing the police officer that caught you is an option, but you must do this at your own risk. The policeman will probably accept the small bribe. Avoid smoking in public places. However, we understand that smoking in Turkey is a unique experience and you might be tempted to get high in more populated areas, just remember, if you decide to do so, be smart about it and use your common sense.
