The chances that you get drugs offered in Ibiza is big, even though this is not allowed. Watch out by who and what you buy. Not all drugs are reliable and if you want to buy something, make sure you do this from a dealer, so you know it is reliable.

Police on Ibiza is strict and controls much. Although it is not punishable to have drugs in your possession, there is a very thin line between drug possession and drug dealing.
