When I was in Morocco I bought a bag of their traditional mint tea plus one bag of lemon tea, which both looked suspiciously similar to more illegal kinds of dried leafs. I was a bit worried bringing it home since I was convinced the customs would think it was drugs. After all Morocco is one of the world’s biggest producers of marijuana. Of course they would realize their mistake pretty fast but I had horrible images in my head of being escorted away by the cops while everyone started and speculated about what I’ve done wrong. That never happened since they probably had dogs smell the bags. They had a dog smelling all the passengers when we exited the plane as well. Is that common or was it just because the place came from Morocco?
If we wanted to buy weed we could have done so many times. We were offered to buy drugs at least fifteen times. I found the situation rather funny. How they out in the open tried to sell us something illegal which for sure would send them to a nasty Moroccan jail had the police caught them. It was just so weird, anyone could have heard their sales pitch. Perhaps poverty drove them to it or maybe greed. All I know is it was very different from Sweden. In Sweden when you’re out shopping you’re definitely not offered to buy drugs by strangers.
