Bangalore is India’s third-largest city and an interesting and more out of the beaten path place to explore in India. If you want to do something less touristy and experience the real India, but still want to be in a big city, Bangalore is a great spot to check out. If you want to smoke weed while there, there’s a good chance that you’ll manage:
Cannabis laws in India
India has a long and rich history of cannabis use in many different forms and by many different groups of people. However, marijuana is illegal in the country, except for bhang which is used for religious purposes. In the state of Karnataka, where Bengaluru is located, cannabis is illegal and you are not allowed to possess or cultivate it. That being said, the police do not enforce these laws too strictly, and you will often get away with just paying a bribe.
It’s a good idea to be careful if you are smoking weed in India, as dealing with the police can be a very negative experience. You will want to be discrete and keep it on the down-low if you do decide to smoke in India.
Getting weed in Bengaluru
Finding weed in Bengaluru isn’t too hard and you’ll be able to score some if you really want to. An easy way to do that is to ask a rickshaw or taxi driver to hook you up. There is a decent chance that they will try to rip you off, but it’s still an easy and convenient way to find weed as a foreigner. Just make sure to negotiate the price down a lot and take a look at what you are buying. You can expect to pay a few dollars for a huge bag of weed.
