Pushkar is located in the north of India and is an ideal place for travelers that want to see a less international and more relaxed side of the country. It has a rich culture and religious significance for Indians, which brings many locals and tourists to town. If you want to experience Pushkar with some weed, that is rather easy to arrange:
Cannabis laws in India
Cannabis has been used in India for thousands of years and there are still ethnic groups and sects that continue the use of bhang, which is made out of cannabis. However, the smoking of marijuana resin, as it is usually done in the West, could land you in prison for up to 6 months and cost you Rs. 10,000, or both. Of course, in practice, many tourists get away by bribing the police and avoid jail and fine altogether.
It should go without saying that you don’t want to go to Indian prison, but the good news is that this is very likely to happen for simply smoking a joint. Many locals smoke and as long as you are discreet and careful, there should be no problem.
Getting weed in Pushkar
Finding weed or hash in Pushkar is easy and you will likely be offered to buy some while walking on the street. This is a region of India that is frequented by backpackers and hippies and the locals also seem to like smoking, so if you find yourself near the lake or market, it will be hard to not get offered to buy some marijuana. Charas is the local Himalaya hash and it is the most common thing people smoke. The prices are very low, generally, anything above 1$ per gram is a ripoff.
