While smoking marijuana in public is prohibited, the public can do so in a marijuana café where people can choose from various strains. Similar to Amsterdam, Barcelona has more than 200 clubs or lounges where marijuana is available for purchase and use. Applying for membership or being a member’s guest is the only prerequisite.

Thai government permitted households to grow up to six plants, but not for personal consumption. Thailand’s development will soon provide travelers who smoke in the area with stunning views and vibes. Cambodia is also paving the way for more laid-back weed travel even if it’s not entirely legal, yet it is acknowledged and readily available. Watch out for dishes marked “happy” in restaurants because they almost always contain ingredients with varying levels of THC. Picking destinations like these is one of the best ways to travel with weed.
