There is little difference between countries that have legalized marijuana and those that are too lazy to enforce it. Holding “small amounts for personal use” is the general guideline. In most cases, you can grow some of your own plants at home. In general, all other prohibited laws still apply, including intent to sell, transport or traffic.
Marijuana is one of the few policy issues to be legally dealt with in this way, suggesting that law enforcement around the world considers cannabis to be largely harmless. The global feeling we get is that the police in any country would rather do anything else than try to arrest everyone carrying a few knuckles. But they can still selectively control large-scale drug trafficking.
Wherever marijuana is legalized or not enforced, the rule of thumb is that as long as you care about your business and not show it up in public, in the privacy of your own home, you’ll be cool to burn, etc. Wait. In general, countries with lax marijuana policies also tend to legalize medical marijuana to some extent.
