Austria has relatively liberal drug laws, with the general approach being to ignore personal use and focus exclusively on sale, production and trafficking. Possession (which includes the act of smoking) of cannabis is punishable by prison time of up to 1 year (option of alternative therapy and subsequent waiving of sentence). If possessed for personal use, the penalty seldom exceeds 6 months.
