Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3

Any second conviction for a drug offense can double the possible penalties.
Nothing has been changed on the State Code re marijuana for years. Like much of the Western US, Meth has been such a huge problem for years that it tends to be the focus of virtually all of our changes in drug law.
Law enforcement: Look: this numbering system might work rating cities in Europe, but, as this is America it should be said that IT IS ILLEGAL. No “somewhat/slightly/very illegal” distinctions would be wise. Be cool, be smart, and you will not find yourself being “slightly incarcerated”–ha ha. The laws regarding weed are neither lax or draconian–and if those words are beyond you, you’re part of why everyone thinks smokers are idiots.
Where to buy marijuana in Boise: There is no one distinct location to purchase marijuana. Boise is not a large city with as high of a demand for marijuana as Los Angeles or New York, making it difficult to find dealers on the street. The safest way is to go inside of any A&W Rootbeer restaurant, and find someone who looks like they may know about where to get some weed. A&W does not drug test it’s employees which increases the likelyhood of finding a toker employee.
another reporter added: “Since Boise is not a big city, your best bet is to go into the North End. In Idaho this neighborhoood aka what residents call “Hyde Park” is easy to score. Generally 59% of the population there smokes. All you got to do is just pretty much ask somebody on the street. Another option is to head to Camels Back Park and ask. Almost a straight for sure there. ”

1 pound – $1,200
With Hookup’s (My experience)

1/8 Blueberry – $45
another reporter added: “50$ for an eighth, a price which has been the going rate for years.
I saw someone else say OZs sell for 120$ in Boise? Ounces of WHAT, exactly? Ounces are up to 400, but are often well worth it. Friends who took care of their bills last week, and got lucky the night before, will often offer to sell you an ounce for 285-300$–though, at the time, you’ll only have $280-295…
–however, sometimes dudes pull that excuse for why just-this-once they have to charge you 60$. At that point I explain why just-this-once I’ll be tracking one of the other people with weed…flipping them just-this-one-finger. ”
Brands: Hawiaan Bud, Trainwreck, Ak47, Northernlights, and White Widow are the main strands.
Sometimes B.C. Buds, Blueberry, Purple Haze, White Widow, along with various other default marijuana strains.
another reporter added: “Routinely, it was BC bud for years. Surely people have heard the term–around the Northwest US, it’s pretty common to hear it–“pretendica”? Well, thank god our situation has improved. But when you can’t find a batch of the AK46-and-a-half, or our recent strains of Train Wreck. You can track down some of that aforementioned BC, though you might bargain down the price. It isn’t as good as Train Wreck, and price fluctuates according to potency and scarcity of supply: thus, logic tells me that I should pay no more than 40$ a bag. In fact, to pay more than something is worth, is “sucker” behavior–or, as car salesmen say instead, “customers.:””
More information: Not at all a “city” city. Metropolitan areas, or less-than-3-million-pop. cities, along with a slew of Hollywood movies might have people believing that EVERY city has “that one neighborhood” to score. It simply isn’t the case here, despite a population nearing 200,000+. It ain’t that the cops are all that vigilant, nor is it that no one buys/sells/smokes. But–to somebody casually passing through–you’re not gonna find parking lots full of highschool kids, or the guy at some landmark whispering to passersby, or University areas reliably full of smokers who’ll tip you about whom to speak to. If you asked me, personally, if I “knew where to get weed,” even though you’re a stranger, I’d tell you.
