Filled with sandy beaches, tropical rainforests, and an unnervingly high homicide rate, Honduras is one of the lesser-traveled Central American countries for tourists. While weed is not legal there, Honduras does have some reasonably lenient drug laws for personal possession. At least it seems on paper, anyway.

Weed Laws Honduras

Much like the laws of Guatemala that we just wrote about, the cannabis legalities in Honduras are also quite hard to come by. From what I can gather, the main points of interest are:

  • for first-time possession offenders they must be interned in rehabilitation for up to 30 days, and a fine of up to 1000 lempiras (40 USD at time of writing)
  • for second-time possession offenders, this goes up to between 30 to 90 days, and up to 5000 lempiras (200 USD at time of writing)
  • for third time (or more), they would be interned until deemed reintegrated into society

According to druglawreform.info though, rehabilitation centers don’t actually exist. Instead, if the possession is deemed minimal, the judge will simply set the offender free.

For drug trafficking, however, jail time can be between 3 to 20 years. The line between drug trafficking and possession isn’t clear though. Like a lot of countries, this line is blurred to allow the prosecutor at the time to decide based on the circumstances. Regardless though, weed isn’t legal in Honduras, so breaking these laws comes with significant risks.

Marijuana in Honduras

Despite Honduras seeing some of the lowest levels of tourism within Central America, the country still sees close to 1 million tourists per year. With all of that tourism, a small percentage try and seek out marijuana. In the larger cities of Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula, you’re more likely to come across people smoking weed, however cannabis is still a lot more taboo than some countries. Medical weed also isn’t legal in Honduras, so this is a big factor in keeping the general populace’s opinions quite negative.
