And you can buy marijuana, hashish in clubs, pubs and also on the beaches of the country. However, we can not say that the quality of the weed is guaranteed, for 2,1 euro per gram. Brazil recently recorded the first death from cannabis, when a trader was crushed and ground in half a ton of contraband marijuana ...
Cannabis and its derivatives - hashish, charas, Tz'aras and Bhang - are common throughout the country and are part of religious culture.

Peru is another place that promises enjoyable recreation. Possession up to 8 grams is permitted, but cultivation and sale are prohibited. This is why Peru is known to be a magical place where herbs simply “appear” which we do not know where…. Be discreet, Peru does not lack space for a hiding place ^^
In 2010 the Colombian government passed laws to end criminalization (de-criminalization). In Colombia up to 20 grams of marijuana are allowed for personal use.

In 2016 the tourism industries propose to organize a tour operator around the sacred plant. Indeed the government is rather favorable to this new style of tourism. The “Irie” Islands in Jamaica and the Caribbean are also famous for the huge spliffs that one sees parading in public on the streets and on the beaches at dusk. It is until Jamaica we simply ignore the laws ...
