The fact that there is a university and many young people in Turin, make weed easy to come by.

Cannabis laws in Italy

A lot of people, especially young people, in Italy consume cannabis. Weed, however, remains illegal, but it is worth mentioning that the laws are not very strict and target producers and sellers instead of consumers. Possessing a couple of grams of weed, meant for personal consumption, is decriminalized. This means that you might get a fine, and in some cases get away with just a warning. Selling and growing cannabis is a much more serious crime, for which you might go to prison.

It is advisable to not smoke weed in public places in Turin. You might often see locals doing it, but it is usually better to remain discrete with your weed usage.

Getting weed in Turin
