Cannabis Laws in Taiwan
Laws regarding any cannabis activity are pretty strict and people can even get a death penalty if get caught with a huge amount of cannabis. The biggest problem is that the country is still very conservative and cannabis is listed as a Schedule 2 drug which is in the same category as LSD or opium. Police officers are very professional and are familiar with the smell and look of cannabis, so it’s not advisable to smoke in public as you can easily get yourself in jail.
Where to Get Cannabis in Taipei
Although it’s not an easy task to find any cannabis in Taipei, your best bet is by knowing a local or just hang around places where tourists are going. For example, there is one popular bar called Woodstock where you can find someone who can help you with cannabis. Another good place is a bar called Carnegie’s, but always be careful when trying to score weed in bars as the police usually watch these places.
Cannabis in Taipei isn’t easy to find and also the quality will vary a lot. You can get around 5 grams of decent quality for around $300 which is just enormous.
