Advice from THC Japan
Attention All Travelers to JAPAN:
Marijuana Laws in JAPAN
It is not safe or wise to bring any pot, hashish or any other marijuana derivative products into Japan, including medical marijuana. It is simply not worth it. We feel strongly about this, as such consequences are dire in Japan. You will be arrested and prosecuted for sure, and you will be subject to a certain amount of JAILTIME and then face DEPORTATION.
The Japanese Airports are very strict by all means, and the customs agents are professionals at spotting travelers carrying cannabis. They have sniffing dogs regularly as well. The jails are clean yet very strict and the prolonged sentences are known as very hard time.
It is also not wise to engage in growing, cultivating and smoking marijuana in Japan, even if offered by a close friend. The police are very tenacious and unforgiving, and commonly when a dealer is busted, all the clients follow him straight to the nearest jail.
Thank you for your attention regarding this matter. We wish you the best of luck, and feel free to contact us at THC for updated Japanese cannabis laws and possible support when arrested.
