Legislation: Although marijuana is technically illegal, personal consumption is arguably decriminalized due to the “ban on excessive punishment” inherent in German law. According to federal guidelines prosecution can be declined in cases of up to 30 grams in several regions.
Law Enforcement: In the State Hessen (which is a state in Germany) up to 30 grams are considered just to be for own consumption. If you have more than 30 grams on you, you will probably be considered a Dealer. Yet, you might get arrested for only having 1 gram or even just a joint, it really is up to the police officer’s mood. On the other hand it is commonly known, that even Cops in Germany smoke up themselves. Sometimes when they catch you, they’ll just take you weed, say that the weed will be destroyed (probably by smoking it..) and you’re free to go.
Don’t smoke in public, but if you are chilling in a park it’s alright. The cops are pretty friendly but since possession is illegal in Germany watch out a bit, although they are not gonna check you. if you are 18 you r allowed to have it in your system, so things are pretty easy .
and also: “Your shit’ll be gone, but If you seem peaceful, don’t worry. They can’t even bust you. I once saw an argument between a crack-fiend or something, where the crack-fiend was really pissed off because they stopped him smoking his shit on the street, and they finally just took him with them, because it seemed he wanted to whop them.”
