"Drugs in Tanzania" Tanzania Warnings Or Dangers Tip by alminacpants

Tanzania Warnings and Dangers: 48 reviews and 29 photos

Once walking with a friend down a street in Moshi town, a man apporached us asking if we wanted a safari (this is a very common occurence), when we refused his offer he started spouting off about drugs, asking us if wanted to "kiss the sky". My advice is, do not buy any street drugs in Tanzania. I cannot emphasis this enough. The punishments are extremly harsh even for small amounts of marijuana. You will arressted thrown into Tanzanian jail, and at the mercy of your country's embassy (if they choose to assit you). Forgeiners do not get any special treatment when it comes to illicit drugs.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
