Kutaisi is one of the oldest cities in the world and a very unique and interesting place, that has its own charm. If you want to explore a city off the beaten path, this is the place for you. The food is great, the wine is great and the atmosphere is enchanting. However, when it comes to weed, it can be tough to find something in Kutaisi, despite the legality of weed.
Cannabis laws in Georgia
It may come as a surprise to many, but cannabis is actually legal in Georgia, it is the only former communist country to allow it. This came about due to a Constitutional court decision in 2018 which removed the previously very strict laws. That being said, it is illegal to sell and grow cannabis, as well as to smoke it in public. This means that there isn’t really a legal market or an easy way to get weed in Georgia.
If you plan on smoking a few joints while in Georgia, there isn’t any law that forbids that, but it can be hard to actually get your hands on weed, as you still need to rely on dealers.
Getting weed in Kutaisi
Despite the legality of cannabis, it is still very hard to find weed in Kutaisi. Locals often have a hook up and a dealer that will sort them out, but if you don’t it is unlikely to find anything. There isn’t much of a stoner culture in Georgia, so people don’t usually smoke out in the open or sell weed. You might encounter someone in the park, but it’s rare and not guaranteed at all.
