Antigua and Barbuda is a tiny Caribbean nation made up of a few islands, Barbuda being the second largest. This small island is a great and popular tourist destination, that manages to capture everything that makes the Caribbean great. The weather is hot, the beaches are beautiful and the food and drinks are affordable. If you also want to smoke some weed while there, you’re in luck, as the laws in Antigua and Barbuda regarding weed are not too strict.
Cannabis laws in Barbuda
The nation of Antigua and Barbuda is very progressive when it comes to marijuana, with cannabis being decriminalized and very close to being completely legal. Since 2018 weed is decriminalized, if you are caught with under 15 grams and there is no punishment. However, the sale of cannabis and the possession of more than 15 grams could lead to legal penalties.
Overall, Barbuda is chill when it comes to marijuana and you shouldn’t have any problems with the police regarding that. The only thing you need to keep in mind is not to carry too much on you, and you’ll be good.
Getting weed in Barbuda
Because of the relaxed laws, finding cannabis in Barbuda shouldn’t be too hard. There is a decent chance that someone will just offer to sell you some, but if that doesn’t happen, you can always ask around. Hotel staff and the people selling trinkets on the beach are notorious for being able to hook you up. The only thing you need to keep in mind that there is some really bad and low-quality weed in the Caribbean, so make sure to take a whiff and check it out before paying.
