The U.K. government notes in its foreign travel advice for the country that visitors should “avoid recreational drugs of any kind in Fiji. Possession of even small quantities can lead to imprisonment and a hefty fine. Possession of any amount of marijuana carries a mandatory three-month prison sentence.”

Those travelling with medicinal marijuana would also be well-advised to know the rules. “You’ll need permission from the Fijian Health Ministry beforehand to avoid any trouble. The country does not have a medical marijuana program, so seeking permission is critical to avoid any trouble or hassle,” according to the THC Times.

Beyond possession, though, the Illicit Drugs Control Act 2004 makes clear that importing, exporting, manufacturing, cultivating and supplying drugs, including cannabis, is also off-limits.
