Just come to Vietnam or on the way to Vietnam? And you are Looking for Weed in Saigon?
Weed Laws in Vietnam
Cannabis has a wide range of health benefits and it can also help people with a variety of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis and others. However, cannabis is banned in Vietnam.
Vietnam still have a death sentence, and you can get executed by using or distributing drugs; cannabis included! The laws are mainly referring to imprisonment; if you’re lucky, but also, for selling or distributing, the penalties can lead you in front of shooting squad.
Very shock right? and we said, alright, no cannabis for us! After an initial thought, we decided to find a way to get and smoke around the country and do the most detailed research ever! Later, after talking with many locals, expats, tourists and reading many stories on different forums, we concluded that the laws aren’t enforced by the police officers when it comes to cannabis; especially if a foreigner consumes it.
Vietnam wants to become a huge tourist destination and police doesn’t want to bother foreigners for smoking a joint since it can possibly make a country less attractive for young travelers. It has its benefits, but also many disadvantages. For instance, in major cities where there is a huge expat community, you can walk around the street and smell cannabis on each step.
That’s cool at first sight, but when you think a bit about local people living there, it’s probably not the best thing ever! We saw many people openly walking around the city while smoking a huge spliff without caring about anything or anyone. It’s generally OK to smoke, but always use your common sense while doing anything illegal in a foreign country.
Especially in Vietnam since the cops are very corrupt, so if they want, they will get a considerable bribe from you. Don’t be the guy who is smoking in the middle of the street during the day. It’s stupid and not respectful to local people.
No matter what, don’t grow or sell weed there. Even if you’re a tourist, you will end up in huge trouble and possibly in life imprisonment. Also, don’t think about smuggling cannabis from the other country to Vietnam.
There are a lot of places where you can score good quality cannabis around the country, so don’t worry that you won’t find any.
