In Scotland as in other countries of the United Kingdom drug use is not illegal. Possession and distribution is against the law. For instance, if you are caught with a small amount of marijuana it will probably just be confiscated. If you are caught smoking around children then you will be arrested. In other words don’t make it known that you are high and don’t be out in public getting high. As with most of Europe marijuana is not usually the drug of choice to smoke. The quality is okay but it’s the hash that is the better buy. There are certain areas in Glasgow that you can go to and usually score some pot. You can go to Kelvingrove Park and usually buy some herb. It will be of a medium quality and its cost about £25 for a quarter ounce. Which is not bad but you would do better to buy the hash. The purple haze is usually primo and will knock your socks off.
Scotland is not trying to ruin your buzz. They just really want to turn the blind eye and as long as you don’t act stupid you really shouldn’t have any problems.
Medical marijuana is not legal in Scotland but there is a growing number of people who are pushing for it. The research from the United States is making its way across the pond and the Scots are liking what they are hearing. The three areas being looked at is for cancer and AIDS patients and how it eases the ill effects of chemotherapy. Another area is the response that Charlotte’s Web is having with epileptic children and their seizures.
There is also a growing number of citizens who want marijuana taken off the list as a Class B drug. There are many who wish that there was no law from stopping them from purchasing or possessing marijuana. Scotland is pretty lenient as is most of the United Kingdom about marijuana.
If your traveling through Scotland and you purchase some hash or marijuana as long as you don’t flaunt it out in public you should not have any problem. So sit back and enjoy a good malt, fire up a joint or some hash and enjoy yourself.
