Health & safety

Morocco is fairly safe when it comes to major crimes. However, travelers have to be aware of a large amount of petty theft and scams in tourist-heavy areas. Fake guides are the biggest issue in Morocco. Locals on motorcycles, in vans and on foot can be quite aggressive in competing for your money and attention. Be very careful when hiring guides and make sure that you hire one who is knowledgeable and speaks your language. Always agree on a price before leaving on a tour or hiring a guide. Also, set some parameters on what you want to see and the number of shops you want to visit. If you don't want to shop during your excursion with a guide, it's a good idea to state this upfront.

Marijuana (known as kif in Arabic) is plentiful but illegal in Morocco. It's illegal to buy, sell or consume marijuana or hashish in Morocco. If you're caught with the drug you may be subject to a fine and, potentially, time in jail. There are also many scams that surround the selling of drugs.
