If you’ve ever had any doubts about finding weed in foreign city, don’t panic! Prague stands for one of cities where finding weed is very easy!
Furthermore, cannabis spread over Prague as much as people started calling it ‘the Amsterdam of the east’. Its nickname already awakens an urge to go and visit it, we know.
Keep reading, and let us give you some pros so you can cross off this European diamond off your list!
With an estimated 400,000 marijuana users we dare to say it’s pretty pot friendly. It’s common to see people smoking in public, but nonetheless advised to smoke privately.
If you find yourself lighting it up in a warm, cozy bar and a cop suddenly walks in, simply put it out and play cool, most likely they won’t say anything. But don’t think about doing the same thing in clubs, unless you feel like having a nice chat with fists included with the bouncers.
If they catch you someplace outdoor or elsewhere and you’re not breaking the law considering the amount of possession, you will most probably get a fee and even get to keep the stuff if you’re lucky and respectful.
Cannabis Law in Prague
In order to understand why the Czech Republic is so liberal when it comes to drugs, a quick summary on its short law history should explain it.
In 1993 possession and use of marijuana were legalized, while the production and sale were criminalized and punishable by law. 1999 the law was altered to criminalize possession of ‘amounts larger than small’ of cannabis. The law in 2010 finally established a possession limit of up to 15 grams or up to 5 plants.

The largest fine is about $680 (15000 CZK), but in reality it’s not so common it will actually happen. The bigger the possessed quantity, the bigger the punishment, so while you’re there it’s best to keep it under 15 grams, just in case.
Where to get weed in Prague
Regardless of its nickname, don’t expect to see shops and coffee places selling weed everywhere you turn. Weed in Prague isn’t such a ‘big thing’. It is probably due to its liberal view of it throughout the last few decades.
There seem to be two rules that might be smart to follow when it comes to buying – never buy from street dealers because you will almost certainly get ripped off (avoid Wenceslas square) and don’t ask the bartenders, unless you’re a mean Mr. Grinch and wish unemployment upon them.
Still, it’s funny how street dealers will make eye signals with you, to notify you that you can pick some weed from them. If you want to find weed in Prague without too much care for the price, just look for young black males. Someone will wink you for sure 😉
As usual, we advise to hang around at chill bars, music events, concerts, festivals etc. There are some bars that have a fair reputation, such are Kenny’s Island, Shotgun, Abstrakt and Cross Club. U-Sudu is also a bar that we’ve heard is weed friendly, so try checking it out, you’ve got nothing to lose. If none of those work, as a last choice try Chapeau rouge, located in the center.
Obviously the best way of them all is to know a grower, which might happen if you hang out in the right places and make the right connections. Luck can also come in handy.
Cannabis prices in Prague
Expect to pay around 15$ (300 CZK) per gram, but the price varies a lot in reality. As a tourist you almost always pay more, especially in bars. If you know someone the price will fall in double, so get those social skills working, and who knows, maybe you’ll find friends for lifetime!
Hash usually comes from Morocco and it’s cheaper than weed. One gram will cost you between 7-10$ (150-250 CZK). Again, avoid the street dealers.
Don’t voory, about the thing. Everything’s gonna be allright!
You will have one of the best times ever. Prague is amazing town with amazing weed!
There is only one life and every one of us should spend at least one weekend in Prague in sweet company of Mary Jane.
