Pot in Poland for tourists

In Michigan you are allowed to have 2.5 ounces on you for personal use.

In Poland, the police will send a pipe off for analysis to try and find a few micrograms of residue. One reason it's really not worth taking the risk of carrying any in public.

That is interesting. As far as I was aware smoking pot wasn't illegal. Possession is. So residue would be useless

Possession is

That's what they're trying to prove. It happened to someone I know in Warsaw. Stopped and searched at night in the city centre, prosecuted and fined for a minute trace of unburnt THC in the residue.

I would expect to read about something so silly in the papers

And at least in my neck of the woods it's not a common practice

Silly and often unjust prosecutions happen daily; they rarely make the news, especially if they're within the law.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Basically yes, unless and until the law changes.

Oh thank you my dear lady ;

waste of police time?

And resources. All people involved (the policeman, prosecutor and judge would have to have an axe to grind

Silly and often unjust prosecutions happen daily

True and they happen everywhere but a residue is not possession so in my opinion it's not within the law. And I can see that happening only if someone had a problem with that indiidual

Unfortunately the opinion of the judge was what counted here.

And I can see that happening only if someone had a problem with that indiidual

He was Ukrainian; I don't know if that counted against him.

I meant something personal. Like sleeping with the Police Chef's wife/husband etc

Residue contains thc which is written within the law in my opinion plus it confirms "intent".

No, only that, plus possibly homophobia. He got a fine of a few thousand PLN; he paid it back in instalments.

I doubt his case is unique. A shame; it caused him problems, and he was a thoroughly good person.

Nice...

Idk about illinois exactly but its probably very similar. When i lived in ohio the fine was like $100-$500 for possession under 100 grams which i couldnt believe. This was before legalization in illinois so i was stoked that having a few oz on you is a felony in one state yet a mere traffic type citation. Oddly enough, the part i lived in had crappy reggie weed and having good proper hydro was rare and super expensive. That changed quickly ; )

Lenka the cops will try to get anything they can. If they can send a pipe to the lab and if it detects weed or whatever the prosecutor will def use that.

I remember hearing that in poland there is a penalty for smoking weed around people. So if ur smoking a joint on a bench and other people are around and a cop catches you there may be additional charges besides just possession.

Weirdly enough the weed laws seemed on paper more lax under prl than afterwards. Not many people were smoking back then though. The more popular drugs bacl then were "polish heroin," relanium which is like valium, and solvents.

Ive been smoking on a girl scout cookies sack from last week. Great energetic/ and europhoric sativa head high and not a coucher. Speaking of which i think its time for another blunt....

I'm sick of reading how smoking weed is so terrible and dangerous in Poland and the police are chasing you at every turn.
As long as you behave discreetly and normally and don't look like a drunk juvenile hiphop fan, you won't have any problems.
I'm a bit old but I still smoke weed in parks and at concerts for many many years and I have never had a problem.

In Warsaw, there is no problem with getting a weed.
There are many dealers who trade on e-mail basis or f2f deal.
A lot of young people speak English and if you want to smoke weed you will find a plug.
The golden rule: do not pay in advance. don't go over western union.

I also do not understand the approach of my fellow countrymen, who respond to every request for a weed in Poland, in the form that you will be arrested immediately.

It's not true !!

Greetings to all potheads from all over the world.

Well that's where carts come in. You can smoke anywhere and no one will know.

@WarsawStoner

I'm new to Warsaw and hoping to make a f2f connection. Any suggestions? And I agree, behave normally and don't look like a drunk juvenile hiphop fan and trouble won't find you.
