Whether you like it or not, marijuana is still illegal in 46 states and over 170 countries. That's pretty much most of the world.
And despite the seemingly general tolerance and global use of the stuff, not to mention the changing attitude of American voters, pot is still something that can land you in jail. Unless you're in one of these 25 countries.
Note: While a lot of places have passed medicinal marijuana laws, and tens of others have laws on the books but don’t care what the hell you do, these are countries where you can smoke it RECREATIONALLY with little to no chance of being arrested (although you could get hit with a fine).
Armenia - Those caught with a small amount, and without an intent to sell, face only an administrative fine.
Australia - In Australian Capital Territory, South Australia, and Northern Territory, possession is only punishable by a fine.
Bangladesh - No laws on the books.
Belgium - Legal with under five grams, no smoking in public.
Brazil - Punishable only by drug treatment and fines.
Chile -- Legal to possess five grams and consume in your home, illegal to buy and sell.
Colombia - Decriminalized under 20 grams.
Czech Republic - Decriminalized.
Ecuador - Decriminalized up to 10 grams.
Estonia - Small quantity decriminalized, but you may be subject to a fine and administrative (non-jail) arrest.
Germany - No prosecution if caught, only confiscation.
Italy - Decriminalized.
Jamaica - Will be decriminalized by the end of 2014.
Mexico - Decriminalized in small amounts.
Netherlands - Decriminalized for personal use, but police can confiscate it; legal in Amsterdam.
North Korea - Legal.
Paraguay - Decriminalized under two grams.
Peru - Legal up to eight grams.
Portugal - Legal up to 25 grams.
Russia - Only an “administrative violation” if under six grams.
Spain - Legal.
Switzerland - Decriminalized under 10 grams.
United States - Legal in the states of Colorado and Washington. Will be legal in both Alaska (February 2015) and Oregon (July 2015) by the middle of next year. While Washington, D.C. also voted to legalize this November, it's still a bit of a pipe dream. Congress has the right to overrule District laws and some members have indicated they'll try to stop it. If the law makes it through, it would go into effect in 2016.
Uruguay - Legal.
An earlier version of this story included Argentina. While Argentine courts have deemed anti-marijuana laws unconstitutional, those laws remain on the books.
