    Cannabis legislation

    Hey, I would like to know what is the legislation concerning cannabis in hong kong. Is it legal to grow it if you don't use it and what happens if you are caught growing it?

    You're however allowed to use the poppy as your logo.

    You can get in a SHITLOAD of trouble for even possessing it here....a joint can get you a week of jail. If you're not a permanent resident, they might deport you while they're at it. Something to keep in mind. If you're gonna do it, don't tell ANYONE about it.
