  • Sweden Marijuana Laws

    Sweden Marijuana LawsIn the country, it is illegal purchase, possess, sell, transfer, or consume any amount of cannabis. Any individual suspected of using cannabis can be ordered to take a drug test by the police. Minor offences, usually, render a 30 day-fine (a day-fine is currently between 50 to 1000 SEK, largely depending on income).

    On the other hand, the possession and occasional cultivation of plants for personal use attracts a higher fine of up to 150 day-fines. Punishments range from 6 months to 10 years imprisonment for the purchase, smuggling and possession of larger amounts, organized cultivation, or sale of cannabis. It is worthwhile to note that ungerminated cannabis seeds are not legally classified as cannabis and mere possession of seeds is considered illegal per se.
