happen to know of any pubs with a very high tolerance I could go and get a contact high LOL
Don't know about chur, In Luzern the more tolerant bars don't mind people preparing a smoke inside, but won't tolerate smoking inside, cigarettes yes, herbs no, that policy extends as far as the door, when whatever you do is no longer the bars responsibility. TBH, the tolerant bars are easily recognisable by the crowds that hang around them.

Most clubs with a smoking policy vary with the night, go to a concert where you'd might expect to find smokers, and it'll be thick in the air, bouncers are more concerned with bottles and weapons than patrons smoking doobies. Even f it's not allowed, if you're caught, you're most likely to just told to put it out or do it somewhere else before things get physical.

My dad told me once that beer is made with boxing gloves and condoms, you either want to F*&#K or Fight.

I noticed with my 16 years in the Emerald City (Seattle) that dudes tokken on the left handed cigs didn't have an angry bone in their body.

Re: Weed??!! What is the law here?

I think a good place to try to score is at the park that's behind the National Swiss Museum in downtown Zurich (near the HB). I use to live near there and often, when walking through the park, someone would walk by and ask me if I wanted to buy some. Just look for young people sitting around, hanging out. I don't think anyone young is going to be offended if you go up to them and ask if they know where you could get some. The cops here don't care too much about it.

And while you're at it... smoke some for me.

I'm a Mommy now and my "high times" are over.

Sorry, I believe this is bad advice... they (the coppers) can spot you from afar and pick you off easily, plus they check the park quite regularly.. at least try not to do your business in plain sight!

I'm not really familiar with the matter, but since you're in Bern, hanging out in/around the Reitschule might be a good starting point.

Really bad advise. It's maybe the most controled area in whole Zürich. No wonder given the history:
Needlepark

Everytime I walk through the park to the dynamo I see at least one Cyclepatrol and people getting controled.

So, is it legal to smoke or not ? Excluding production, incitement and trade...
Am I the only one who finds it kind of eccentric that someone made an article specifically about cannabis in Switzerland on Wikipedia?

I guess people are willing to write about anything on there...

http://www.hightimes.com/read/swiss-...w-takes-effect. Decriminalised as of Oct 2013 fyi, not that it was particularly well enforced anyway. Those cantons that allowed the luxury of growing up to four plants for personal use - those days have also gone.

It is definitely illegal, but generally the police will turn a blind eye as long as your not being obnoxious about it, blowing it in their face, blazing around children etc. etc.

Dealing is taken a bit more seriously from what I heard.
Where I live, I actaully see children (youths) smoking it. Not too sure whether the police do too?

Seen teenagers in a Basel school during the late afternoon smoking in plain sight. Nobody batted an eye lid.
