In theory, the laws regarding the recreational use of cannabis are quite strict and you could go to prison. However, in practice, it is very unlikely that this will happen for a small quantity of marijuana. Most people caught smoking rarely spend more than a night in jail and usually get off with just a fine. Growing and selling weed is illegal and punishable with prison.
