Asheville, NC, North Carolina
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.75
Possession of one half ounce or less is punishable by up to 30 days in jail, most likely suspended. Possession of greater than one half ounce is punishable by 1 – 120 days in jail, with a possibility of community service or probation in lieu of jail. Possession greater than 1.5 ounces increases the penalties to 8 – 13 months in jail.
Penalties for sale, delivery or manufacture are increased if the sale occurs within 300 feet of a school zone if the offender is over 21 and if the sale was made to a minor or to a pregnant woman.
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: Won’t bother unless you are being obvious.
Where to buy marijuana in Ashville:
Go Downtown, the headshops are pretty strict about cannabis, but if you go into a restraunt or cafe with stoner/hippie looking types (there are many in Asheville;make sure to look for college-age looking ones) ask about “smoke” or “green” and you’ll most likely be able to buy or at least get smoked out. a good restraunt to check is Rosetta’s.
The best place to find some smoke in Asheville is definitely the downtown area, or North Asheville, around the University of North Carolina at Asheville campus. A lot of Asheville pot heads stick out like a sore thumb and more than likely you’ll find them working in the local cafes, and delis. Ask one of those kids, with descretion, and you’ll probably at least get smoked out.
a recent report we got: “Just go downtown and be descrete yet forthcoming. You’ll have a great time and you won’t get shwag. You’ll get shit that whill blow your mind.”
and also: “Downtown
check Rosetta’s kitchen or Malaprops book store”
