National drug strategy & treatment policy
The possession, cultivation, sale, and consumption of drugs are all illegal in Iceland. In particular, the possession, cultivation, and sale of marijuana are heavily penalized; anyone caught doing these things in Iceland faces the possibility of a jail sentence.
When it comes to consuming marijuana, the Icelandic authorities tend to impose heavy monetary fines rather than jail time to first-time offenders.

However, amounts of over 0.5 kilograms will result in at least three months of jail time.
