Larnaca, Cyprus’ third largest city after Nicosia and Limassol, is located in the south of the island. If you’re visiting the city, you might want to try some marijuana while you’re there. It’s understandable, given Larnaca’s wealth of attractions. From beaches to old churches and castles, there’s plenty to see and do, not to mention delicious food. However, Cyprus’ cannabis laws are among the strictest in Europe, and travelers may find it difficult to find marijuana in Larnaca.
Cannabis laws in Cyprus
Marijuana for medical purposes is authorized in Cyprus to a certain extent, but any recreational use of the drug is prohibited. If you are arrested, you will very certainly spend a few days in jail before appearing in court. You could be sentenced to two years or more if you are found with a huge amount of weed.
Overall, cannabis is heavily regulated in Cyprus, and if you do manage to procure some in Ayia Napa, keep it low key. The locals have a negative attitude toward marijuana and may call the cops on you. So do not smoke in public. You could smoke at home or in a quiet place void of people.
Finding weed in Larnaca
Getting marijuana in Larnaca is quite difficult if you are new in town. You’ll have to rely on local plugs. If you don’t know anyone, you’ll need to ask around maybe in nightclubs or bartenders. If you happen to witness someone smoking, approach them and inquire. You could also talk to club promoters, who may have an idea or know a dealer. The cannabis is often of good quality, however this varies greatly from dealer to dealer.
