Smokin' the Grass...

...and we don't mean the grass at Palace Gardens! Prague has been called "the Amsterdam of the east" for good reason; its liberal laws and liberal policies mean that the city has earned a reputation of being pot-friendly, and an estimated 400,000 marijuana users are largely ignored by the authorities and tolerated by most everyone - not that we recommend that sort of thing...

However, if you're inclined to toke the chronic, we recommend, err, we heard that it's best not to buy it off the street, but rather ask around, particularly at more chill bars or at concerts. If you get a whiff of some wacky tobacky while you're at a concert or bar, politely ask the holder of said hippie lettuce if he knows where to buy, or perhaps if he'll sell you some of his. Some bars even have their own dealers who hang around, so courteously asking the barman may work as well. Whatever you do, never buy from a dealer who walks up to you in the street, or most often the train station. Next to cabbies ripping off tourists, so-called "dealers" are the most notorious for taking your green with no green in return, often giving you a half-second peek at something that looks like ganja but is more likely oregano, and running off with your cash after mumbling something about seeing a cop. Remember, if it looks and feels shady, it probably is.

 

So is it legal? Well, here are the facts:

Section 187a (1) A person who keeps, without authorization, a narcotic or psychotropic substance or a poison in a quantity greater than small shall be punished by imprisonment for a term of up to two years or by a pecuniary penalty.

Technically, smoking and possessing marijuana is illegal in Prague and the Czech Republic, though the marijuana legalization movement in the city is highly active. Under the current law on drugs, people can possess "not more than a small amount" of marijuana, though what constitutes a "small amount" is not specified, but it's generally understood as less than 4 grams. If caught, the fine is a slap on the hand costing you 1000 kc, and you might even get to keep the weed if you're lucky. The 1999 law is under pressure to be changed, particularly to separate marijuana from "hard" drugs, both in definition and punishment.

But what's the reality?

In practice, small amounts for personal use are generally allowed or might land you a minor fine at worst. In fact, even if a cop happens to walk into a bar as you're lighting up, just discreetly put it out and most likely they won't even say anything to you. And, most pubs and non-tourist bars outside of the center allow you to smoke inside, though it's polite to ask the barman first. We've heard rumours of U Sudu being weed-friendly, for example. Don't try lighting some skunk at a dance club though, unless you want Jiri the bouncer's fists to send you on a trip stronger than any chronic.

What about quality and price?

At the moment, the going rate for herb is about 250 kc per gram, though tourists tend to be charged double. Even at the double rate, it's more affordable than Amsterdam or the usual prices in the U.S. or UK. As far as quality, it's definitely more kind bud than shwag - usually straight from the cannabis capital itself, Amsterdam, and packing a punch. Unlike Americans, Europeans mix their skunk with tobacco when making joints, so don't try to smoke it straight unless you'd like to see pink elephants doing the tango around Wenceslas Square. If hash is more your bag than bud, it can be obtained from reputable dealers, though it's more rare and might be more pricey than plain old reefer.

Basically, if you're planning to get high in Prague, be kind and respectful to authorities and owners of establishments, and the bud will be kind to you. If you're not causing a problem, no one will mind if you bring your friend Mary Jane to a concert or park.

Mary Jade from United States Reply Aug 24th, 2014

hey guys, MJ here, your friendly local canadian toker girl :) So I live in prague and actually have the luxury for working with a medical MJ firm, so my job is basically to get stoned and work out better ways to get stoned :) so that being said I know a thing or 2 about the prague scene and I want to write a little article for you if you are comming here. Lots of people have heard that prague is the 'amsterdam of the east' well there is a common misconception that this refers to the weed laws, and it does not really. basically the SEX industry laws here are lax, there is a lot of prostitution and cheep beer so stag dos come here to get drunk and hope to fuck. THAT is what makes it the ADOFTE. True, the drug laws here are not bad, but to be honest berlin is looser, Canada is getting there and now even states in the US are overtaing it. OK if you want to come to a place where you can get off with a slap on the wrist/small beating for having some filthy pills or heroin on you then for sure prague is great, but if you are a toker, its not 100% ok to just light up and smile. THAT BEING SAID you will NOT find a big problem here simply for smoking- as long as you just keep it to yourself and dont DONT DONT start falling for the trap of asking barmen 'hey man wheres the weed at?' in the loudest american accent you can. Come on guys..... you will see a lot of african men in wenclas offering product which can be good or it can be fake. its really one of those things that no matter what someone says, it just depends on if you were lucky or not. Expect to pay 250-500 depending on if someone likes your face and how dumb you look. Or ask around to people who are smoking- but dont just barge up to them half drunk and shout HEY MAN FUCKIN A GIVE ME SOME POT DUDE! or shout across the square to your buddy 'DAVE OVER HERE IVE SCORED!!!' at least be nice and polite and maybe ask the person smoking the time, where a cool bar is, THEN ask if they can load you up! You might score good- locals pay 100-250 a gram depending on the quality, the time of year and what colour the moon is. (if you didnt know drug dealing is a supply and demand market!) If you get stuck, shoot me a line and i can point you in the right direction to buy for 100-150 local price, IF you dont sound like a douche on your profile thats going to F***K it up for the rest of us. Peace! MJ
