Japan Marijuana Laws
In Japan, the penalties for use or possession of marijuana are severe. The convicted offenders could expect hefty fines and long jail sentences. It is worthwhile to note that possession of any amount of marijuana, even as little as 0.1 gram, is punishable by jail sentence for up to 5 years and/or a fine of up to 30,000,000 yen (USD 344 790). The offender has to stay in police custody for a few weeks before the court decision has been announced.
