Question by Sea Dog: Has Morocco ever prosecuted a foreigner for Marijuana possession?
The attitude to Marijuana in Morocco is so relaxed anyone would think it’s legal….it isn’t. The law can punish you very harshly for it, but have they ever done so, to a foreigner at least?

In these counties, they would more likely punish a foreignor. Alcohol is becoming illegal again in some degree. http://goafrica.about.com/od/morocco/a/moroccokif.htm

    In terms of punishment, I would avoid using or having in your possession ANY illicit drug or alcohol in any muslim country. Morocco happens to be one. Regardless of the false sense of openness the country has toward it’s use, it remains illegal. It might pay you well to watch Locked Up Abroad on Nat Geo, for a few episodes to understand the ramifications of drug use.

    The islamic religion tends to be lacks on their own, but severe on Dhimma (ie non-muslims).

    Don’t take it lightly.. Avoid it.. Don’t take a risk of being locked in a sweltering jail for 20 years for simple possession.

    Enforcement in the Rif is erratic and corrupt. You’d only be tossed in jail if you refused to pay a bribe (which is many times higher for a foreigner than a local).
