Cannabis laws in the UK
In the United Kingdom, cannabis is classified as a class B drug, along with ketamine and amphetamine. It’s illegal to sell, grow, traffick and possess weed and you can get arrested and sent to prison for all of those things. That being said, if you are caught with a small quantity of weed that is meant for your own use and not to sell, you might get away with a warning. The policeman that catches you can decide if they want to take you in or just give you a warning. Because of that, it is important to be nice and respectful if the police catch you, you might just get away.
Marijuana is illegal in Bristol and you need to be careful. For smoking a joint it’s unlikely for you to get into a lot of trouble, but you should still be careful and not smoke on the street for everyone to see.
Getting weed in Bristol
It is relatively easy to get weed in Bristol if you look hard enough. You might want to head to the St. Werburghs, Gloucester Rd or Easton. But keep in mind that those places are kind of bad. Gloucester Rd is arguably the most middle class, so you might want to start there and only move to the worse neighborhoods if it’s necessary. When it comes to the prices, you can expect to pay about 10 GBP per gram, but most dealers will not just sell you a gram, you need to buy at least 3.
