Legal status of marijuana in China

MEDICAL MARIJUANA IN CHINA

The production, sale and possession of any form of medicinal marijuana products are illegal in China.

RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA IN CHINA

The cultivation, sale, and possession of cannabis for recreational purposes are illegal in China.

China is known for very strict and harsh anti-drug laws and penalties. In bigger cities like Shanghai it’s not uncommon to find marijuana being sold by dealers in the street, but any possession will be punished.

We are not aware of any possible law changes in the (near) future in China regarding medical and/or recreational cannabis.
