Weed in Rome

There is no city like Rome in the entire world and it is one of the places everyone needs to visit. With its great food, great history and amazing nightlife you need to explore this city while high. Of course, Italians are pretty chill about weed and despite of the laws, you should be fine with scoring cannabis in Rome. Here is our guide, that will help you get high on your trip.

Cannabis laws in Italy

It should come as no surprise that Italy has very relaxed marijuana laws. Cannabis is illegal, but it is decriminalized in small quantities, meaning you probably will not go to jail. What you can expect, with a few grams on you, is to get a fine and have it confiscated. Of course, that is just the law, in practice, you might get away with just a warning. Rome is more liberal than the south of Italy, but still, you need to be respectful and don’t smoke at the Coliseum or public places like that. Just be discreet and cooperate with the cops if they do come and you should avoid even the fine.

Where to get weed in Rome

Rome has a lot to offer and it is a huge city, so you will have multiple options to score, here are the best places to look:

  • The San Lorenzo district there are many dealers here that are a bit more legit than the normal ones. It is very much a student district, but if you stroll the streets you will see some Moroccans or Albanians and they usually sell weed. The way it works is, you make eye contact with them and they will approach you and say ‘fumo’ which is the slang for marijuana in Italian. The price for tourists is about 10 euros per gram but you should be able to negotiate down a few euros. The quality is mediocre.
  • Piazza di Santa Caterina della Rota is also a great spot to check out. Just like everywhere in Rome, you need to look out for the dears and make eye contact. Again, be careful not to get ripped off and do not overpay.

  1. There a scam with weed in Rome. Street sellers buy cheap CBD weed at a local cannabis shop and sell it as THC weed on the street for double the price. CBD weed makes you tired and does nothing. It’s worthless. This has happened twice to me.
