Where to buy marijuana: Lots of people in Beaufort smoke. On the beach look for people who look like they smoke. If you don’t act sketched, they might smoke with you or sell you some.

Go with someone who knows the area and you shouldn’t have a problem. Good luck finding hash, it isn’t common at all. Cigars and papers can be purchased at most gas stations.

More information: Don’t walk around smoking in downtown Port Royal or Beaufort. Find a place in the woods, preferably a place you can walk to. It’s pretty hard to find a good spot, so just find someones house if you can.
