The list of countries and regions where cannabis is “legal”, to varying degrees, is vast and ever-growing. It includes, but is not limited to, the following countries:
Africa: South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi
America (North): Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, United States (state-specific)
America (South): Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay
Asia: India (region-specific), Israel, North Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand
Europe: Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland
Oceania: Australia, New Zealand
Antarctica: Neither legal nor illegal, home country laws may apply
However, cannabis legislation technicalities can be very complex and specific, e.g. “decriminalized” versus “legalized”, “medicinal” versus “recreational”, “private” versus “public” and “cultivation” versus “use”. Even if cannabis is not fully legalized in your country or state, there are sometimes grey areas, such as legally being able to order seeds online or no laws being in place that make private weed use illegal. So, research your specific region’s legislation thoroughly and, keep in mind, you should never break any laws.
