Blairstown, NJ, New Jersey
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 1
Legislation: The usual NJ state laws apply. There are two drug free school zones (one at the highschool, one at the elementary school.)
New Jersey CDS laws apply. Possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana or being under the influence of marijuana is a disorderly persons offense, punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Possession of greater than 50 grams is punishable by up to 18 month in jail and a fine of up to $25,000. Any possession within 1,000 feet of a school adds an additional 100 hours or more of community service to the sentence.
Law enforcement: Blairstown has recently experienced an embarressing municipal debacle involving the disbandment of (and the quasi-legal decision of the town council to re-instate) the town’s police force. Being one of the most highly Republican populated (and controlled) counties of NJ, marijuana use is not tolerated in any way by the police. The Blairstown Police have a tendency to be very bored most of the time, left with nothing to do but shoot ran over wildlife, set up a speed trap once in awhile, look for fireworks on the fourth of July, move fallen debris, hanging out at the highschool parking lot, and filling out paperwork… Get caught with cannabis and you will not only be arressted and harshly prosecuted, but also treated as though you were a crack dealer. Keep a low profile, observe the speed limit, and don’t do anything obvious (obviously) Blairstown is full of winding, forested back roads. Some of them the pigs have never set foot, others they like to hide out in.
There is also a state police barrack on the border of town that sometimes helps partrol Blairstown
Where to buy marijuana: I would first try the local A&P plaza after 2:30 PM and carefully ask any employee or scruffy kid running around (careful) who looks zonked out of their skull or just seems like they would be a pot head. Most dealers usually don’t have “it” on them if they are at work, but some might. Be prepared to wait fifteen minutes to several hours for your purchase to actually arrive.
The next destination to inquire would be the TA a truck stop outside of Blairstown, theMcDonalds across the street. You may have some luck here, although it is a very sketchy spot.
Marijuana prices: Mids- 10 a gram Low to High Danks- 20-30 a gram Exotic or Specialty: 20-40 a gram
Prices are usually stable unless there is a drought. During the last drought not many smokers were able to find much, if anything at all, for an entire summer and then some.
Marijuana brands: Multiple. The average bag of bud is usually your standard danks. Nothing super special, but certainly not wood. However, because of Blairstown’s relative proximity to New York and New Wark, at times boutique strains such as AK-47, Afghan Kush, all types of Haze, Sower Diesel, White Widow, and Jamaican Red Hair, to name a few, turn up from time to time.
More information: There isn’t much else to do in Blairstown on a weekend night other than to get intoxicated in some form. If you love the outdoors, then you will love Blairstown. If you like to get high and wander through nature, then you will really love B-town.
