Pula is a big city in Istria, Croatia. It is most famous for its colosseum, which you definitely should see, but it also has great wine and food to offer. When it comes to cannabis, however, things in Pula is not too rosy. Just like in the rest of Croatia, the marijuana laws are strict and getting weed is hard. Keep on reading for all of the details.
Cannabis laws in Croatia
Currently, cannabis is illegal in Croatia. If you grow or sell weed that is considered a felony and you can go to prison for that. Luckily, when it comes to possession of a small amount of cannabis, meant for your own use, the laws are not that strict. Possession of a couple of grams of weed will only lead to a fine but bear in mind that the fines are high ranging from 750$-3000$, depending on the details of the case.
Getting caught with weed in Croatia is an expensive pleasure and will certainly ruin your vacation. Sometimes the cops might leave you alone after a bribe, but that is also not going to be cheap. The best thing to do is to be careful and level-headed when it comes to smoking.
Getting weed in Pula
Croatia isn’t like the other countries in southern Europe when it comes to cannabis. There aren’t any street dealers walking around like in Spain or Italy. The laws are harsh and not that many people smoke. Instead, the locals that do smoke, usually have a dealer they can call up whenever they need anything. You will need to make some Croatian friends and ask them to hook you up if you want to get anything. It is also not a good idea to ask thuggish looking guys for weed, as many of them are anti-drugs and will not like being asked.
