Considering Finland is on the verge of Western civilisation, cannabis use is still illegal. The majority of weed growers do not sell their harvest and instead give it away for free to friends and others they trust. Because there are so few big-time commercial cannabis farmers in Finland, bud is something really unique for once-a-month users.
Since the 1960s, it has been classified as a narcotic (not a hard one). A new legislation states that any attempt to grow, even if it is in a pot, is illegal! It is currently prohibited to own seeds or lights. Possession is unlawful, possession of more than 5 grammes is with the purpose to distribute, fines (up to 60€) are the most usual method of dealing with cannabis, and if anything, mass distribution would result in jail time.

Cannabis Laws in Findland
A minor punishment is imposed if you use or possess less than 15 grams of marijuana or 10 grams of hashish (the minimum penalty is 60 euros).
If a properly behaving (and lucky) adult is not causing any difficulty and the police officer is having a good day, he or she may avoid any penalties. Some cops are aware that they have more pressing matters to attend to than harassing someone who has a marijuana on his lips. During weekends in the city center, public smoking is not uncommon, but it is generally not recommended, especially for reggae concerts and similar events.
Where to get cannabis/weed in Helsinki
Smokers tend to congregate in the parks surrounding Helsinki. When strolling through a park, there’s a good chance you’ll smell marijuana. The greatest time to visit Synebrichoff Park is during the summer, when the park is full with young smokers. Ask them about the plant in a positive and courteous manner, as everyone is wary of it. The only disadvantage is the quantity you will receive, which is common when people are deceived.
