Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 1
Legislation: SC’s pot laws are very strict. Stay away from schools. County will usually confiscate the contraband and issue an appearance ticket. For first time offenders there is the possibility of diversion sentencing and community service in lieu of cash fines or jail time. City is slightly more harsh and will usually jail you until such time as you can be arraigned.
Law enforcement: Anderson is a police state. There are plenty of city, county, and state cops just waiting for action to break out. These are especially prevelent at night in the bar areas and up on Clemson Boulevard near the nightclubs.
Where to buy marijuana: If a street is named with one letter and one letter only, there is a decent chance you will find a dealer on it. The local housing projects also have their dealers but this is where the pigs are so beware. Look for typical dealer signs, but also people sitting on their porch or watching the street from their lawn. In the daytime braver souls would be advised to walk the streets rather than slowly driving up and down them. There are also niches in the area that frequent bars, fast food establishments, gas stations, and shady areas. Generally these are opportunisitic con artists looking to market schwag as kind and make a killing. Sections of town include Fairview Gardens, Belton Woods, South/East End of Town, Whittner Street, Fant Street, River Street, Murray Ave, S. Main and adjacent areas. Remember, this is old news to cops so be careful.

Weed is a secondary drug in this town. The primary drug of choice is “crank”, while “blow” and “H” come in second. Pharmeceutical drugs are also sold on the street such as “OC’s” As a general rule you should avoid cold buying in this town. It’s just too risky, the product isn’t worth the risk, etc. but if you can find a reliable connection then you are set.
