Cannabis in Iran
Policy, variety and prices

While Ahmadinejad tries to scare the whole world, his citizens can't stop getting stoned. Look around you, MAHMOUD AHMADINE-BUD!

Legislation
Iran has a very interesting policy towards buds - planting marijuana is legal if planted for food purposes (Iranians still eat the seeds just like sunflower seeds), and there are also companies in tehran that draw the oil from the seed and sell it legally.

The punishment for possesion of marijuana is a fine of Iranian Rials 10000 (US $1.25) for every gram in your possesion and as long as you have less than 10-15 grams they will not even hassle you.

Enforcement
Smoking it though is technically illegal but enforcement is next to nothing. You can walk anywhere in Iran and puff away and no one will have any idea that you are smoking weed. Most people here smoke hash or opium so smoking weed is considered as OK. Last year, however, Iranian authorities arrested about 50,000 drug users ranging from weed smokers to heroin junkies. This was mainly due to the increasing amount of heroin replacing traditional opium smoking resulting from higher profits to smugglers.

In general, always use common sense and caution, and remember a smile is better than a frown.

Where to buy Marijuana in Iran
You can find Hash at any park in any Iranian city and just walk up to the young bored looking types hanging out. Always bargain!!!
