The 7 Countries With The Strictest Weed Laws

It isn’t shocking that Saudi Arabia, a nation without bars or liquor stores, is one of the countries with the strictest weed laws.

Authorities punish drug use with long jail sentences, deportation, and public floggings. Even more frighteningly, punishments for drug use are not fixed.

Furthermore, a type of Islamic law called Tazir mandates that a judge decides punishments on a case by case basis, which means that sentences are often harsher than you would expect.

The punishment for drug trafficking is always death, either by hanging, beheading (the most common form of execution), or firing squad.

47% of executions in Saudi Arabia were drug offenses as of 2015. Exceptions are not made for foreigners. They made up 48% of those sentenced to death between 1985 and 2015 according to Amnesty International.

All this does not apply to Saudi Arabian aristocracy. In 2015, Lebanese authorities caught Prince Abdel Mohsen bin Walid bin Abdulaziz with over 4,000 lbs of cocaine and amphetamines.

While most Saudis and travelers suffer the consequences of draconian laws, Saudi royalty parties without consequence.

The Final Hit: The Countries With The Strictest Weed Laws

There is nothing better than a cannabis-themed vacation, but make sure to check local laws and customs before you light one up. The countries with the strictest weed laws make no exceptions for foreigners.

Often, they do the opposite and make examples out of visitors. Don’t forget that most governments and interest groups don’t want you to have access to mind-opening marijuana. And they will punish you for it.

  1. There’s nothing mind opening about marijuana use unless you mean making the mind one large vacuous space that causes it to cease reasonable functioning and consideration for others. I was laid back about others’ pot smoking until the increasingly lenient laws in the U.S. meant that there’s hardly any enforcement of the pot smoking in my NONSMOKING apartment building. I’ve heard similar complaints from others in their apartment buildings. Sorry pot smokers, but as long as you force me to inhale your noxious fumes in my apartment building, parking lots, any public public venue whatsoever, I will be firmly against the use of marijuana and will seek greater enforcement and punishments. It’s your selfishness and lack of consideration that has made it this way.

  2. Laura you ignorant slut! Your inane diatribe on how this medicinal and spiritual plant that has been mankind friend for thousands of years is both ill informed and ignorant. Not sure if you have any facts at your disposal, as there are none listed , but your little baby annoyance is as amusing as it is ignorant. I will enjoy watching the world wake up and change around the close minded retardation that is your voice and that of your “kind”. Fade away oh mouse squeak of activism, scurry off to your creatively bereft and humorless hole of self unawaness and get buried in the rubbish of “no one cares”
