Exploring this city with a joint in hand should not be a problem after reading our guide to weed in Tallinn.
Cannabis laws in Estonia
Estonia has a big drug problem compared to other European nations. Cannabis is also very taboo as it is seen by many as a gateway drug, but the younger generations do smoke. The law is fairly harsh but much softer than some of the close-by countries. The law does recognize a difference between selling or growing marijuana and possession a small amount for personal use. If you are caught with a few grams on you, you will not go to prison but will receive a fine instead.
The police in Estonia have quite a negative view of cannabis in general, meaning that despite the fact that it is only punishable by fine, smoking in public or crowded places is not recommended. Stay away from the city center with weed on you and only smoke at home or more isolated places.
