Cork is the second-largest city in Ireland, after Dublin. It’s not the biggest city, but it has its own special charm and there is certainly a nightlife to enjoy. When it comes to cannabis, Cork isn’t the best place in the world and it’s often hard to find if you aren’t local. Read on for the complete guide to weed in Cork.
Cannabis laws in Ireland
Cannabis is illegal in Ireland and you could get into trouble for simply possessing a small amount of weed. As a matter of fact, 53% of the drug cases in Ireland are about weed. If you are caught your weed will be confiscated and tested and afterwards you’ll get prosecuted. For a first offense, you can get a fine of up to 635 euros. For a second offense, you can get a fine of 1,269 euros and for a third offense, you can get a fine and a year of prison. What you get exactly depends on the exact details of the case.
Generally, the Irish police are pretty chill and in some cases, they might let you go with just a warning, but you should expect to get at least a fine for having weed on you. Because of this, it’s best to be careful and not to be too blatant with your weed consumption. Keep in mind that Cork isn’t the biggest city and there aren’t too many public places where you can safely smoke weed.
Getting weed in Cork
The cops are pretty harsh on dealers, so it won’t be very easy to find weed in Cork. Your best bet is to go out and walk a couple of laps around the pubs and clubs at night. There is a decent chance that you’ll be offered coke or weed. Do not buy any hard drugs as that is very illegal and usually super bad quality. Hash is hard to find and also not worth to bother with.
