Arlington, VA, Virginia

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2

Legislation: Possession:

Any amount (first offense) misdemeanor 30 days $500

Any amount (subsequent offense) misdemeanor 1 year $2,500

Conditional release: The state allows conditional release or alternative or diversion sentencing for people facing their first prosecutions. Usually, conditional release lets a person opt for probation rather than trial. After successfully completing probation, the individual’s criminal record does not reflect the charge.

Law enforcement: Arlington police will bust you if they catch you. We have a very high concentration of police as well.

At times I’ve seen two police cars going opposite ways at a stoplight. However, they mostly just patrol the main roads, so if you get off the main roads into the neighborhoods you’ll be pretty safe as long as you keep it on the DL.

Keep in mind that arlington residents are upper middle class and will feel threatened and probably call the cops if they see you. Since arlington is pretty built up this means the main roads are only minutes away (remember what I said about the police.) Taking all this into consideration the safest way to smoke outside of your own home is to have a car and stay moving off the main roads. If you don’t have a car arlington has many parks, the best ones next to the potomac river. Still, keep it on the downlow. Moral of the story is arlington is a pretty chill place but the residents are upper middle class, many of whom have kids, and they don’t want it around where they live cause they’ve worked hard to get to where they are in life and all that crap.

Where to buy marijuana: Its more a matter of who you know opposed to where you go. As far as the weed scene goes we have a lot of fake kids here who try and act either gangster, hippie, or rasta but really its cause they have too much free time and don’t know what to do with there lives. They will probably skimp your bag, and arlington’s not really a rough place, so feel free to call them out if they do. Just watch out cause 1 out of every 5 fake gangster kids might actually be from DC.
