Cambridge, United Kingdom

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4

Legislation: Legal status / Cannabis is illegal and is now a Class C drug. It’s against the law to possess it, sell it or give it away, grow it or let your place be used for smoking it.

Class C controlled substance. This is however rising to Class B on the 29th of January 2009.

Law Enforcement: When caught with small amounts for personal use, the pot will be compounded, and you will be released(!).

Although the cops here aren’t too bothered about possession (you get an on-the-spot warning & they nick your stash, bastards. If you’ve got a lot of previous warnings for possession, or they think you might be dealing then it can get more serious), if the cops think you’ve been smoking weed before driving you’ll be in a lot of trouble.

Police target dealers more than smokers but they will take intrest if you are blatantly smoking in public. They are usually quite polite about it and you can usually get away with a warning and your stash being confiscated, provided you are civil and cooperative.

Where to Buy Marijuana in Cambridge:

Hanging around one of the skate parks asking people who look like they might be able to find herb for some skunk should pay off fairly quickly.

Our latest reports tell us: “Christs Piece in the City Centre, around the Princess Diana memorial is a good place to look. Chances are there will be people smoking herb around there or under the huge tree nearby. Ask around and someone should be able to hook you up, although they may ask to share a spliff when you do pick up.

Failing this, Jesus Green, around the skate park is an alright place to look.”

Cambridge Marijuana Prices: £15 – £25 per 1/8 oz. (3.5 gr), £30- £50 per 1/4 oz, £60- £80 per 1/2 oz.

When purchasing a larger quantity, the price goes down to £100-£130 per oz.

Almost invariably £20 for 1/8 of an ounce of weed and it goes up in twenties from there. Some dealers sell ‘tenbits’ (half a 1/8) for £10. For larger quantities you may be able to negotiate a discount.

If anyone tries to charge you more than £20 per 1/8 they are probably not worth the effort and the weed is probably substandard.

Hash is usually cheaper (about £15 per 1/8) but not as good quality or as widely available as weed.

Brands: Mostly Skunk imported from amsterdamis sold in England.

Few dealers offer choice. Those that do usually have two options of homegrown or imported, both of which vary depending on the dealers source. Homegrown is usually less potent (but by no means dud) but you get more for your money. Import is usually dutch and quite potent but you have to be careful because it is more likely to be contaminated.

The same is true for hash.

More information: Make sure you insist on getting a look and smell of the herb before you buy. Some dealers will try and sell you leaves. Never buy pre-ground or pre-rolled weed as it is probably just leaves or some really old or contaminated bud.

If by chance you do attract attention from the law, hiding your stash in your shoes is usually a good way to avoid losing your herbal relief. Alternatively, if you are with a female friend, a quick transfer of the stash from your pocket to her bra before the police reach you will get you off the hook most of the time. Obviously ask her permission first.

Hidden pockets and other sneaky storage spaces are another method.
