Do NOT Get Caught with Weed in These Countries

While cannabis is gaining acceptance around the world, we still have a long way to go until prohibition is a thing of the past. And as a reminder of that fact, a post on Vice.com lists some countries where possession of weed – or even having it in your system – can mean dire legal consequences. The article looks at the marijuana laws of seven countries (eight including the U.S.) and how they deal with cannabis consumers.

Cannabis Penalties International

Penalties in the countries profiled in the article range from years in prison to the death penalty. And while most countries are only concerned with possession cases, some consider having weed in your system as a serious crime. For example, after legalization went into effect there, the government of Canada warned citizens about traveling to Singapore. Upon entry into Singapore, they can demand a drug test, and you can be prosecuted if they find cannabis in your system, even if it wasn’t consumed in Singapore.
