Legislation: The penalty for possession of one ounce or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor and is punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. The court may defer the proceedings and grant probation for no less than one year. Upon granting probation, the court may require drug treatment. If the terms of the probation are fulfilled, the court can discharge and dismiss the proceedings. There is a rebuttable presumption that any possession greater than one ounce is possession for sale.
Possession for sale or cultivation of marijuana is a felony. For amounts greater than one ounce the punishment is 4 – 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000. For amounts of ten pounds or more the sentence can range from 5 – 20 years in prison and a fine of $15,000 – $50,000. For any amounts of 100 pounds or more the punishment is 6 -10 years in prison and a fine of $15,000 – $100,000.
Second convictions of possession, sale, delivery or cultivation can result in sentences up to twice that allowed for first offenses. Any sale to a minor at least three years younger than the seller can double the above penalties. Any sale within 1000 feet of a school, public park, community or recreation center, public housing, day care center, church, skating rink or video arcade increases the penalty for the offense by 10 years.
Minors convicted of any drug offense are subject to a driver’s license suspension of six months.
Possession or use of drug paraphernalia in furtherance of a felony violation is punishable by 3 – 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Law enforcement: Cops in Blytheville are usually tied up with murders and robberies, which happen pretty often. A lot of officers are crooked.
Where to buy marijuana: It’s not too hard if you’re desperate, usually you can walk up to a random (usually black, most of Blytheville is, after all) person and ask for bud. Walker park has a bunch of younger people in their cars on weekends, But be careful, its far too easy to get robbed/shot/stabbed there. A lot of the “thug” folk will rip you off, especially if you’re white. Best option is to find a white stoner and he/she can point you to the way.
Marijuana prices: average, 5 a nick, 10 a dime, so on and so on, for mids, which is usually what youll get.
Marijuana brands: I’ve had a bit of Afghani, which, other than schwag, is pretty much the most common thing, especially in the ghetto. Occasionally, high end (haze, dro, white widow) come in from Memphis.
