Lisbon is the best place to smoke dope in Europe
I’m not talking about the quality of the dope bu about the liberal attitude towards smoking joints you find in Lisbon. Don’t be surprised to find the couple having lunch or dinner next to you sharing a joint… even the suits working in the offices on Avenida Liberdade finish their day with a smoke and a coffee at one of the many quiosques.
Not by making drugs legal but by treating small possessions of weed, cocaine, heroin, you name it as a public health issue, not a criminal one. In theory getting caught with dope may result in a small fine and maybe a referral to a treatment program — not jail time and a criminal record. In reality nobody cares.
First: The prime reasons behind the drug policy – drug related crime & important drug related deaths – declined immediately.
Second: Lisbon got flooded with irritating drug dealers – they are everywhere in downtown. Don’t get surprised when a friendly looking persons stops you on Rossio or Praça do Comércio and offer you coke, weed, amphetamine or harder drugs.
But don’t buy anything. It’s only stupid tourists that do that. You don’t have to be a smoker to see and smell that the ‘shit’ you get offered is exactly as what it looks like: Shit 🙂
Instead go to the supermarket and buy the bay leaves there – it’s much cheaper LOL
