Paros is a part of the Cyclades island group and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. What sets this island apart is the beautiful golden sand beaches and typical for Greece white houses. The island also has a rich history and multiple old churches that are worth visiting. Cannabis can be hard to get in Paros, due to the small size of the island, in combination with the strict Greek laws regarding marijuana.
Cannabis laws in Greece
A lot of people smoke weed in Greece, including locals and tourists. The climate also allows for it to be grown outdoors. However, Greece has some of the harshest marijuana laws in Europe. In theory, small amounts of weed are decriminalized and you can only get a fine for those. However, a court needs to decide if the amount of weed on you was meant for personal possession as well as what the fine should be. This means that in practice you might end up spending a few days in jail before you see a court.
In general, the whole experience of getting caught with weed in Greece is quite negative and therefore it is recommended to be very careful and discrete when smoking in Paros.
Finding weed in Paros
Because Paros is quite small, there are no dealers there. You might have some luck if you ask the locals for weed, but the chances are quite small. You will have a much better chance in bigger cities like Mykonos or Athens. The quality of the weed in Greece can depend on the dealer, but the majority is grown outdoors and is therefore not the best. The price is usually 10 euros a gram, but in summer it can increase quite a bit, especially for tourists.
