Weed Smoking! Top 24 countries where weed is legal (Pictured)

Israel - God's own country is on its way to decriminalize the use of *weed* for self pleasure.
According to reports, it is estimated that 9% of the population in Israel use weed. With the decriminalisation of weed which was announced by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Israelis will be allowed to possess up to 15 grammes of weed.
If a first timer is caught possessing over the stipulated limit he or she would pay a fine of 1000 shekels (roughly N122,000). This will also not show up on the person's record.
Israel is one of the leading countries in medical weed research. The country has joined other countries in Europe and North America to decriminalise or legalise cannabis.
1. Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled in 2015 that growing, possessing and smoking weed for recreation is legal under the right to freedom.

The measure was approved in 4-1 vote on the five-justice panel, backing the argument that smoking weed is covered under the right of “free development of personality.”

Here’s a quick look at 26 countries where weed is legal and what the law states:

2. Czech Republic
Czech Republic permits possession of up to 15 grams for personal use. Weed for medical use on prescription has been legalised since April 2013.

3. Switzerland
According to Switzerland laws, growing weed on private property for personal consumption by adults is legal. However, buying or selling weed is a strict criminal offence and punishable by a fine.

In 2013, the mountainous Central European country decriminalized weed for people over 18 with 10 grams or less of the drug. There's still a fine if you're caught — about $110 — but it doesn't go on your permanent record and you don't have to make a court appearance.

But with the country's high salaries, that works out to quite a cheap fine. You'll still want to smoke in private, though; taking the drug is illegal and can result in much higher fines, especially if you're a repeat offender.

4. North Korea

Surprising as it may seem, but the growth, sale and consumption of weed in the communist country is legal and widely unregulated by the government. Just remember it’s North Korea!
5. Uruguay
While Uruguayan President Jose Mujica has legalised Cannabis, you need to be over 18 years of age to buy it. The law states that to buy people should be residents of the country, above 18 years of age and must register with the authorities.

Besides, there isn’t any law as of yet that specifies the quantity or mandated any rules for selling, transporting or cultivating weed.

6. Argentina

While consumption for medical reasons is acceptable within a private property, sale, transportation and cultivation is illegal by law.

7. Jamaica

Growing, selling and consuming weed is illegal. But it’s been decriminalised in 2013 if a person is found with a small amount.

8. Spain
Spain has a complicated system of drug laws, but weed is not criminalized as long as you smoke in private. Since the '90s, if you are caught with banned substances in public, you won't be punished by jail time, but you might get a hefty fine of about $330.

You can grow two plants for personal use, but buying or carrying is still illegal. In a creative way around these seemingly contradictory laws, "private clubs" have flourished. In cities like Barcelona, you can easily join a members-only pot club where you can smoke your own weed or buy some of theirs.
Tourists, beware, though. The regional government has tried to stymie weed tourism by limiting membership to Spanish residents.

9. Portugal
Portugal has decriminalized possession and consumption of all dr*gs, as long as you don't have more than a 10-day supply. If you're caught with this small amount you can be sent to a treatment center or be forced to a pay a fine.

A three-person committee decides your fate, but often there is no penalty. In addition to benefiting weed users, that 2014 European Monitoring Center for Dr*gs and Drug Addiction Policy report showed that the law has led to a reduction in drug deaths and HIV cases.

10. Australia
Much like the US, Australia has decriminalized weed in some states but opted to keep it a more substantially-punishable offense in others.

With their natural proclivity to co-exist with crocs, Russell Crowe, and other nightmarish animals, you'd think they wouldn't be afraid of a little old fashioned relaxation.

11. Belgium
As far as legality, it’s only allowed if you only grow one bedrocan female plant and nothing else.

Possession has been made illegal again—so that means you just have to hang on to that one female plant.

12. Cambodia

The use of weed is widespread among the Khmer people and foreigners alike—there are even places designated as “Happy Restaurants” in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville that publicly offer food cooked with weed.

13. Canada
You have to try really hard to get in trouble for anything in Canada.

The least of which is smoking weed. You can probably walk down their one highway smoking a joint, playing Springsteen, and shouting “USA! USA!” and all that’ll happen is a passerby will likely offer you a ride.

14. Columbia
Pot has actually been decriminalized in Columbia since 1994 and up to 22 grams is fine under the eyes of the law.

However, if you’re caught with over 20 plants—which is a bit much—you will have to face some unpleasant music.

15. Costa Rica
A de facto decriminalization policy of possession has been upheld throughout the country, and there's no minimum or maximum amount assigned as of yet.

Just another nugget of gold from the chill country that has sloths and sharks on its money.

16. Croatia
Selling cannabis in Croatia is punishable by a mandatory prison sentence of three years—so that’s out, but possessing a small amount of the drug is only met with a light fine.

17. Ecuador

Ten grams is the legal limit in Ecuador, whereas selling, cultivating or transporting the stuff will get you in serious trouble.

18. Estonia

19. Nepal

Pot is nothing new to Nepal. They’ve used the plant for centuries, mostly in religious rituals that involve either drinking an infused beverage, smoking the buds, or harvesting and smoking the resin (hash).

20. Netherlands

Fully legal in designated smoking areas (those coffee shops you always hear about), weed is almost legal across the board, but selling and transporting the stuff will cause problems
.
21. Pakistan
Pakistan is tricky, because the “legality” relies on the laziness of the local police force—while it’s illegal to posses pot, it’s widely tolerated.

However, cultivating *weed* has been decriminalized, which explains the large tracts of cannabis growing freely throughout the country.

22. Peru
You can grow it. You can drive around with it. You can smoke it. Hell, you can do whatever you want with it. Except sell it. Definitely don’t do that.

23. Russia
Of course you can smoke pot in Russia.

Just make sure you don’t have more than six grams, or you’ll totally go to Siberia.

24. Ukraine
It’s fully illegal to sell pot—don’t do that in the Ukraine. However, possessing up to five grams or ten plants is A-OK.

Given the state-by-state policy in the United States, there are states that are both way ahead of the international movement towards legalization and way behind. So if your travel budget won't quite stretch to Europe or South America, consider a domestic flight to Washington, Colorado, Oregon, or Alaska.

In Nigeria, weed must never be found in your possession, neither should you be caught smoking it. This for many is not progressive at all and they would rather have the government a second look at the law that prohibits the people from coming close to weed.
Whats do you think, should weed be legalised? Tell us why you feel it should or why you think it should not?
