Koh Phangan, Thailand

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5

Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Thailand but the police in Koh Phangan is fairly corrupt.

It wouldnt be advisable not to smoke in public or in dodgey back streets, but smoking on the beach or hotel balcony should be kept discrete.

Law Enforcement: It’s easy to find weed in Koh Phangan. It’s the party island of Thailand and drugs is all around. Watch out though. You could be in serious trouble if you get caught by the wrong cop. Mostly you can get away with a bribe. This could vary between Thai Bath 10,000 and 25,000.

Where to Buy Marijuana in Koh Phangan: Just northwest of Tongsala you find a little town called Woktum. There is a place there called Amst*rdam Bar. It’s great and has the best sunset on the island and probably the world. Another good place to buy is also in the north called the Reggea Bar and is in Salad Beach. In the partytown Haddrin it’s also around, but you will pay more then at other places.

Another report added: The main beach where the full moon dance party is held on Haadrin has a little bar that sells weed. It’s all the way at the far end of the beach (to the left if you are facing the water). It’s located high up on the cliffs so you have to walk up lots of stairs to get to it. When I asked at the bar they sold me a bag with perhaps 5g or more of commercial grade pot for only 500 bat. There were people smoking spliffs openly in the bar.

Otherwise, what many people do is ask the owner of the guesthouse they are staying in for weed. It will take a little while for them to get it, but many are willing to sell it. One beach guesthouse I stayed at even had bongs that the owner allowed people to use. But there’s also a rumor that some guesthouse owners may tip you off to the corrupt police, who might bust into your room and shake you down for a bribe to keep you out of jail for the pot they find.

Koh Phangan Marijuana Prices: Prices vary between 500 and 1000 Bath for a package containing 5 to 10 grams of good Thai weed. Watch out though. They could have weed that has a high chemical level, because of used chemicals in the production process.

More information: If you want to get some good prices don’t stay in Haadrin. Rent a motorcycle and drive north…

Koh Tao – Ko Tao, Thailand

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Thailand, and so is any related activity.

Marijuana isn’t treated as lightly in Thailand as it is in the United States. In fact, if you get caught, the cops will treat you as if you got caught with Heroin.

Law enforcement: There are actually a lot of cops on this island. 2 of my friends have had to pay fines of 100,000 baht this year and spent a few days in a not so nice Thai jail.

Where to buy marijuana: Pot smokers paradise. You can smoke it wehere you want. Even in the bars.

Many bar owners smoke it openly and it’s ok to roll on your table in a bar.

and also: “I have ALWAYS scored at “Banana Rock” it’s OK smoke”

Marijuana prices: 1500 baht will get me a good brick

500 bahat = $10 per a 50 gr. bag.

A pre rolled pack of 20 joints costs 1500 Baht. that’s about $30.

and also “500 bhat for 4 – 5 grams (shitty prices, but, what are you gonna do?)”

Marijuana brands: ganja, nepalese hashish is also available but you need a contact

Colombo, Sri Lanka

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

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Sri Lanka, and so is any related activity. Recently the government has launched a campaign against drugs.

Marijuana, although used in local ayuvredic medicine, is taboo. Smoking in public will get you into trouble.

Law Enforcement: Due to very high security measures in Colombo (related to recent escalation of Tamil Tigers problems) people seem to be quite cautious when selling.

Especially by night, you can expect to meet police patrols which will search your vehicle literally every few hundred meters.

Police and military do not harass foreigners but it is highly recommended not to smoke in the car nor create any suspicion.

Where to buy marijuana in Colombo, Sri Lanka: As of November 2006, there were several “Hotel (de) Pillawoods” restaurants in Colombo – the place which was pointed out here to be selling. Unfortunately, as a foreigner, all I could get there was suspicion.

Most of the Tuktuk drivers will have some or will be able to provide some info – check the ones which linger by their vehicle (eg. near Mt Lavinia, Odel, Cres-cat).

Significantly better quality I have found at the clubs – ask the “promising” looking guys/bodyguards/ticket sellers from the entrance and they will direct you (eg. R&B club).

For hashish you have to try the latter option. It did not seem safe to meet these people the next day so I have no info on the quality of the hash.

Marijuana Prices in Colombo, Sri Lanka :

200 – 250 Rs for a small bag bought using directions/direct selling of Tuktuk drivers.

> 300 Rs for the same quantity – significantly better, bought from

> karaoke/clubs

1$ = appx 100 Rs

More information: It is said that good things are available also on the beaches down south – eg. Bentota beach. Just walk out to the sea, look interested and very probably you will be approached by some offerers. Also, out of Colombo there is less police so you might feel safer!

Dhahran, Saudi Arabia

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2

Legislation: No information yet.

Law enforcement: Saudi Arabia isn’t the place you want to get caught with shit because you’re probably asking to get yourself into serious shit. However, as long as you’re not a local you can probably pay your way out of the jail cell but you’ll definitely be at the station for at least a night and you’ll see some pretty sketchy shit there, not cool.

Where to buy marijuana: You actually won’t be able to find pot but hashish is everywhere. There are two pretty easy ways to find hash: 1- spend a lot of time on the corniche and just walk around, eventually you’ll find someone that looks like they blaze and if they don’t sell everyone knows who to get shit from…2- if that too hard the easiest thing in the world is aramco camp, find someone who can sign you on to the aramco compound and look for kids anywhere from ninth grade through college years. The only way they’ll get you shit is if you ask and don’t be a sketchball about it or they’ll rip the f*** out of you.

Dhahran marijuana prices: It’s awkward, weight has no significance and if you talk in grams people will think you’re a dumbass…for about 100 riyals you can get a piece of hash just a bit longer than your pinky finger…there is a small problem with some dealers, they only sell by 250 riyals and so they get to make more shit off of you. when you ask for a piece just be like “yo, do you have shit cuz i need a 100” something like that.

Brands: Most the stuff you find is going to be from saudi (another city called qatif). Also, its pretty common to find afghani shit and sometimes moroccan hash is available too. Try to stay away from “shegra” it’s blonde looking instead of brown but I’ve bought shegra that didn’t even get me buzzed so stay away from it, its too easy to get shitty stuff.

More information: The good thing about hash that isn’t possible with weed is the quality is easy to tell by the smell. When you get the piece break it open in the middle and check to make sure its not dark black and give it a little sniff, even if you can’t tell what the shit is its a good idea to do that because most likely you’ll make your hookup think that you know something about what you’re getting. However, no matter what you get never seem too pleased because its very common to rip people off and being pleased is like consent to letting people jip you.

Male, Maldive Islands

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

Legislation: No proper legislation exists. Supposed to be illegal but the majority of the population either smokes brown sugar or hashish oil.

Law enforcement: Police usually don’t bother foreigners. But as a rule its always good to be safe and smoke your stuff indoors at your hotel. Police are more interested in arresting political dissidents, so do not have much interest or time to bother with drug users.

Where to buy marijuana: Lets put it this way: its easier to buy hashish oil in Male’ than it is to buy a beer. The best way t go about scoring some hashish oil (oil derived from marijuana plants and the only stuff u can get in Male’) is to start up a conversation with a local youth. Usually any guy with long hair and funky clothing will do. As a rule if you spot 8 local youths on the street, its more than likely that 7 of them are hashish oil smokers. The best locations to go to are the famous surfing point on Male’ island and also around the carnival near the ferry terminal to the airport.

Marijuana prices: Asish oil is usually sold in old cemara film conatiners (for large quantities) or in plastic wrapping paper (for smaller quantities). The smallest amount u can buy is MRF 100 (USD 9) worth of stuff from which you should be able to make 2 decent joints. Alternatively u can go for full (which is full film container) which would cost around MRF 7000 (USD 500).

and also: “1 inch packing for 100 Rf”

Marijuana brands: The only good stuff you get is Hashish oil.

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2

Legislation: Cannabis is illegal in Mongolia. But it grows naturally almost everywhere in the country so no one really cares. Easy to bribe the cops if youre caught in smoking or possesion its usually max 20.000 tugruks (20$). Anyways cannabis is not very popular in the country so most people doesnt even know what it is.

Law enforcement: Bribing the cops are easy. If you won’t bribe them immediately before getting all attention on you, having less than a 5 gramms of hash or cannabis you can stay locked about day or two and will pay fine of 50$ in a local police station. Selling it will make you in trouble of at least year in detention.

Where to buy marijuana: mostly nigth clubs, or ask the hippy looking guys in front area of state department store.

Marijuana prices: Prices vary a lot depenting on a dealer. Usually 5$ per joint or 3 grams of hash for about 20$.

Marijuana brands: Almost all natural grows almost everywhere. The high is medium uplifting and stone effects mostly, hash and oil imported from neighbour countries

Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 1.5

Legislation: Very very strict, which means death penalty for traficking and for sure jail for any amount, even very small.

another reporter added: “Getting caught under possession of weed will get you the same punishment as getting caught with heroine. The punishment: HANGING! Carrying above 15g of weed automatically qualifies you for this offense. If you were to get caught with less than 15g than I suggest you hire a GOOD lawyer.”

Law enforcement: Severe. You should only smoke in your hotel room. Police does usually not bother foreigner, but they will sure do if they suspect something

another reporter added: “Police here are mostly corrupted. So a bribe could get you away. Tourists should be extra careful as cops will ask for higher bribes or you may not get away at all. Then again it would be much better if you don’t get caught…”

Where to buy marijuana: In the golden triangle area, talk with the guys that try to hook you up with the prostitutes. Play the stupid (I’m not sure if you can get me what I want, bla, bla…) and you will eventually bring on the conversation on weed. Once the deal is set, walk or take a cab straight to your hotel, you don’t want to hang around with the weed. And don’t let the dealer know where you stay as he might then report to his policeman friend ! If you’re very very careful, everything should be fine.

another reporter added: “Go to dealers in clubs. Just ask around. No one will offer you weed. Everyone’s afraid of undercover cops and you should be aware of their existence. Be careful as some crooked dealers may mix heroin in your weed”

and also: “Ask those cigarettes stalls by the sidewalk, they know something although not everyone has it, used to hv it at every stall.

Jalan Chow Kit is the main place for it. It’s quite dangerous after dark as this area has the most crime/ homeless but you can get it even in day time it’s almost 24/7 available. Locate the market, ask someone where is the lamb/mutton are sold, near there, you will find some fruits stalls, look out for guys making eye contact, just nod and walk towards a less crowded place, if he follows, you’re on, pay and get the hell outta there. ”

Marijuana prices: In this place mostly are sold in RM10 packs which hardly enough for a joint, negotiate and ask for better deals.

and also: “Never really measured but… 1 quarter of your palm filled with weed will mostly cost you more or less 30 ringgit Always bargain”

Brands: -C-H-W-W-A-G, hashish are little known here, you’d be lucky if the dealer knows what you’re talking about.

Natural weed from Thailand. Delicious, but not too strong.

another reporter added: “Mostly brick from Indonesia and Thailand… I’ve never come across home grown ones”

More information: Risk of getting caught here is kinda high cause of the undercover cops. And getting caught may kill you. Nice place to get stoned but hard to find. X and meth is easier to obtain here tho…

Near that area there’s the famous brothel area, filthy and full of addicts, you may ask info there too or simply engage of those trans plying the lanes, they will be more than happy to help after stripping you naked! LOL

Amman, Jordan

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2

Legislation: Although hardly enforced – Marijuana is not legal in Jordan, and so is any related action.

Law enforcement: Police in Jordan tend to know very little about drugs, well that’s for the average cop on the street. I heard from a few police in downtown that they assumed pot is sniffed like charlie. Some of the ciggs that you find from the builders (mostly Egyptian nationals) tend to look like a j, and on occasion smell like one too.

Where to buy marijuana: People tend to buy mj through friends contact. Smokers tend to be in closed communities where its not ‘out in the open’. Even though Amman is a big place, everyone tends to know everyone and word gets around quicker than the dust kicking about it at best of times. So its best to keep it well within trusted friends.

Marijuana prices: The prices varies depending on the season.

Marijuana brands: Blond (called Shgar) is a very potent pollen that simply crumbles when slightly touched. EXTREMELY POTENT.

smoking in Jordan seems to be seasonal, so you get months where its very abundant, and others where it just goes dry. if you buy some, get enough to go through those dry patches 🙂

blonde (petra),amazing

black hash(happy family,jamila),

some nice buds here and there nothing to fancy

More information: for the accusations of distribution and ,smoking marijuana an interrogation is almost going to happen. And it will not be pleasant according to some of our reporters own personal experiences, so therefore we recommend to smoke in only a safe, closed and locked environment, and never hold more than you really need!!
