Ecstasy on the other hand is a class A drug, and possession can lead to a jail term (worst case scenario, and the authorities do not want to jail tourists).

webehigh city’s tale
Since the ceasefires of 1994, which ended the extremes of violence, associated with Irelands so-called “troubles”, Belfast City Centre has developed an entertaining and varied nightlife. Most of the action takes place along the Golden Mile, which runs from Great Victoria Street to Queen’s University. Although the area known as the Cathedral Quarter is rapidly developing as an entertainment and leisure zone with new bars opening weekly and the development of a small but vibrant gay scene.
Drink is the drug of choice for most people in Belfast and there are numerous bars throughout the city centre catering for all tastes. The older bars in the city have a much better atmosphere and more authentic customers than the newer ones. Watch out for traditional music “sessions” which take place in various pubs on different nights of the week. The “session” is an informal get together of musicians most of whom are unpaid except for a few pints during the course of the evening. The best pubs for sessions are Maddens (Friday and Saturday), The John Hewitt (Wednesday and Sunday), and the Rotterdam (Monday and Tuesday). Sessions are usually advertised in the pubs and the musicians will keep people informed on where the next one is to be. Anyone who plays music is welcome to join in the session, visiting musicians take note.
It should be remembered that Belfast is still only a provincial backwater on the edge of Europe containing some 500,000 people, and 30 years of the troubles have left people naturally cautious. Belfast is the only city in Europe with no left-luggage facilities at bus and train stations because of a perceived security threat. Drugs are rarely offered for sale on the streets and the best way to score is by cultivating local contacts. The only street dealing of marijuana takes place around Bank Square, beside Kelly’s Cellars- one of the oldest pubs in the city.
The normal form of Marijuana smoked in Belfast is Moroccan hash, which sells for £25-30 Sterling per quarter ounce (7 grams). This form of hash is known locally as “Slate” or “Soap Bar”, although the recently reopened air link between Belfast and Amsterdam should in time improve the quality and variety of drugs available. The quality of the drugs available in Belfast is quite poor compared to the larger population centres in Europe and visitors would be well advised to bring their own with them, and if the opportunity arises share them with the locals in return for their undying gratitude and eternal friendship.
It is widely believed that much of the drug trade is controlled by paramilitary groups on both sides, however the reality is more complex. In Republican areas drug taking, while widely indulged in, is frowned upon by those in control. Loyalist paramilitaries are much more likely to be involved in drug dealing, preferring to operate from the safety of their own areas outside of the city centre. It is not very safe for tourists (and many locals) to venture into these areas and the best way to go there is to find a sympathetic taxi driver who will wait and bring you back into town. Here the drugs are dealt from flats and cannabis, ecstasy, amphetamines, and occasionally cocaine can be obtained here.
Ecstasy is usually available in the late night dance clubs for £5-15 per tablet, depending on the supply situation and the time of night. The quality varies, although it usually works, normally white tablets with a Mitsubishi stamp, known locally as “Mitzees”, or the same with black flecks through it, which is of a more problematic quality.
Visitors would be advised to stay away from Belfast during the two weeks around the 12th of July when the Protestant “Marching Season” reaches its peak. In recent years protests against these parades have led to rioting and civil disorder which paralyses the whole place and even the more sensible or affluent locals take their holidays at this time of year, returning when the mayhem has ended and everyone has gone back to work.
Women should be aware of an increase in the instances of “Drug rape”, 135 instances reported last year, and probably much higher. Precautions should be taken to prevent drinks being spiked, although the staff in pubs and clubs is now being trained in how to recognise such behaviour and prevent it occurring.
It should be noted that if you visit Belfast and are invited out for some “Crack” you are not being offered to smoke rock cocaine, more likely you are being invited out to meet people and have some drinks. Craic = fun in Irish.
There are very few instances of drug busts on tourists and possession of a few grams of hash usually results in a Police caution and confiscation, or at most a small fine. Ecstasy on the other hand is a class A drug, and possession can lead to a jail term (worst case scenario, and the authorities do not want to jail tourists). The police are relatively inactive as they prepare to undergo a major reform as a result of the “Peace process”, and it is rare to see them patrolling the streets.
