Floria Floria Yes Legal Yes Legal Yes Legal Yes Legal Infamously known as the 'Drug Capital' of Micras. The Confederate States of Floria shortly after the War of Lost Brothers passed legislation to allow the use and production of recreational and medical cannabis. The country is the biggest producer of the drug worldwide and regularly exports the drug to other nations who have legalised it. The nation's capital, Northcliff is famous for its many cannabis shops located around the city centre.
Kalgachia Kalgachia Yes Legal Yes Legal No Illegal Yes Legal Kalgachia permits cannabis from domestic sources only.

Mercury Mercury No Illegal No Illegal No Illegal No Illegal Possession is illegal. The penalty for possession of small amounts is confiscation. Selling or cultivating of cannabis is punishable by up to 5 years in prison, depending on the severity of the offence.
Nova England Nova England Yes Legal Yes Legal Yes Legal Yes Legal
Ralgon Ralgon Yes Legal Yes Legal (see notes) No Illegal Yes Legal The Ralgons have some bizarre laws regarding the use of cannabis in the country. Importation and exportation is banned due to concerns over conflicts with allies over such items. Only Ralgon citizens are allowed to purchase, cultivate, possess, and use the substance on the mainland. Unlicensed sale of cannabis is illegal by pain of death ad gladium, due to grave concerns expressed by the Ralgon government over the illicit sale of unsafe drugs (tainted cannabis included).

Illegal use/possession by non-citizens is subject to imprisonment and transportation to a penal colony (other than Adrestia) for subjects, and deportation for foreigners after time in prison is complete. Aside from the government itself, very few entities exist with authorization to legally sell the substance. Use by the formal priesthood is illegal and generally subject to defrocking and, in extreme situations, excommunication.

Sale of cannabis is very lightly regulated on Adrestia, save for the ban on importation and exportation. Adrestia generally has more lax laws on the use of otherwise rationed substances than any portion of the Mainland. Here is the only part of Ralgon in which non-citizens are allowed to use the drug freely without fear of reprisal. In the Great Swamp region, special laws exist governing the use of cannabis, and most regulations save importation/exportation are dispensed with, usually to benefit the many Ralgon soldiers, (brown water) sailors, and marines stationed there.

As with all other drugs, smoking is strictly banned in the entirety of the country, unless in situations where it is absolutely necessary to maintain one's own health at this expense. Even in these cases, specialized, well-ventilated spaces are an absolute requirement. Littering with smoking byproducts is even more strongly frowned upon, and (along with littering with nonbiodegradable products) leads to immediate deportation or transportation (without the waste of prison time), or in more severe cases for non-citizen subjects, impressment into the Auxiliaries, which is arguably more painful than prison time.
