This is part 7 of our 8 part series exploring weed in Australia. We’re talking about weed in South Australia, Australia’s third-largest state, and the only state without two cities of at least 50,000 population. The capital city of Adelaide has well over a million people. The next largest city, Mount Gambier, only has around 30,000. It’s a very centralized state.

South Australia is the size of roughly Texas and Nevada combined, while only having 5% of their combined populations. As far as South Australia’s weed laws go, they are more relaxed than most. South Australia is the only state to officially have decriminalized weed.

Weed Laws South Australia

Minor cannabis offenses in South Australia are referred to as simple cannabis offenses. To be classed as a simple cannabis offense, your offense needs to fall within one of these categories:

  • possess less than 20 grams of cannabis resin
  • possess less than 100 grams of cannabis
  • smoking weed on private property
  • possession of bongs, pipes, vapes etc
  • growing no more than 1 plant, provided it is grown naturally and without enhancement

If an offense falls within one of the above categories, you’ll be required to pay an on the spot fine. All values below are in AUD.

  • less than 25g of weed = $250
  • between 25 and 100g of weed = $400
  • less than 5g of resin = $250
  • between 5 and 20g of resin = $400
  • smoking weed on private property = $250
  • possession of equipment (bongs etc) = $250
  • possession of equipment (bongs etc), if there are other offenses = $130
  • growing weed (provided it’s not hydroponically grown, and no grow lamps etc are used) = $400

So I guess with the above, the takeaway is this. If you want to get high in South Australia, don’t possess too much, and don’t use it in public. Just keep in mind though that it is still illegal, despite its decriminalized status.

South Australia Cannabis Tourism

If you read the start of the article, you’ll understand just how empty most of South Australia really is. There are some amazing spots to visit in the state. My personal favorite is Kangaroo Island, home to the only Koala’s completely chlamydia free.

And then there’s the Nullarbor, home to desert landscapes looking over ocean cliff faces. Or Coober Pedy, an opal mining town so hot that most houses are built underground. All great places to enjoy sober or high.
