Dubai, United Arab Emirates

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

Legislation: Dubai is a police state and there is a zero tolerance policy to the usage of soft drugs is punishable by 4 years for possession and life terms with the possibility of death for cultivating and distributing, as well as police very strictly enforcing laws. If you are merely suspect to possession or use of weed you will be given high priority as a threat and will be otherwise till proven innocent. The laws on soft drugs are the same throughout the UAE though in Sharjah you may be given a warning and be put on probation if you are caught without any weed but fail your drug test. Having weed in your system still constitutes towards possession. Also Prescription drugs such as of the opiate class and Benzodiazepine are also considered narcotics unless you have been prescribed them from the UAE, so please be careful with bringing sleeping pills and other medicines with abuse potential.

another reporter added: “Any possesion, 7 years in jail with no trial. Locals (Emirates) can often get out of trouble, but foriegners are in trouble.”

Law Enforcement: the local police are very organized and place a huge deal of priority on any drug related offence, if you become suspect, you are considered guilty till proven otherwise. Also Plain Clothes CID officers are plentiful and are always on the look out, they are also tight knit with allot people and should they hear a rumor they will pursue it to the end. Another worry is potentially everyone is a narc, normal people will jump at the chance to report you to the police if you look stoned or suspect you using. Though on the better end random searches and checks are rare and even if your suspect police are not allowed to enter your home without a warrant no matter how serious the crime though they do knock on the doors are try to get you out, you don’t have to open if you don’t want to.

another reporter added: “Police are infrequent, but it is a risk to bring it through the air port. ”

Where to buy marijuana in Dubai: Go downtown to the red light district area of Diera in Naif and Baraha and neighboring areas were prostitutes are abundant there is a small handful of dealers nearly all are African, they will not say or whisper anything as you pass by so what you need to do is ask them very discreetly if they fit the category, though generally I don’t recommend you do this as still its rare you will find one and the area is filled with plain clothes cops and you may get reported to the police if you ask the wrong person. You can Hookup at trendy nightclubs through asking people you get to know for a hook up, the chances of getting a hookup are still marginal but worth a try if you get to know any of the people that live here as usually clubs are packed with tourists who won’t be able to hook you up. Your best bet is to get a hook up from college students who fit the category of the average pothead, yet you will have to repay them for the hookup by sharing a joint wit h them, not doing so is considered extremely impolite, and those college kids have very loose lips and well openly tell their friends they got stoned with you. It’s not really acceptable to ask around and really your chances are slim at best. Homegrown isn’t shared and most of the stoners bring their own from abroad. Really the best option is to get a hook up in neighboring Oman its a very short drive and will be easy to get a hookup if u manage to make friends their.

another reporter added: ” It is nearly impossble to get in Duabi unless you have a friend who will bring some from Pakistan or somewhere. Some people also drive to Muscat, Oman and bring it back. But not often.”

Dubai marijuana prices: The price varies greatly but generally you can expect 500AED to 1000AED for 1 tola (10 grams). Try to bargain it down to 500AED it’s the usual price yet people always overcharge you. Be careful you don’t get ripped off, it’s very easy to end up with a lump of chicken stock or coal instead of mj. For more than 10 grams prices vary greatly.

another reporter added: “Rediculous. 50$ a gram for some schwag if you can find it.”

Brands: Usually African weed with very mild potency, Good mellow Iranian hash, Kashmiri Charas from Pakistan (exactly like Kashmiri Charas from India yet most often than not will contain henna which burns your throat. Afghan Second press the best thing you can smoke here, and is super potent and very smooth, its some of the best hash in the world. Occasionally and very rarely there is skunk though don’t bother trying to get some, if it doesn’t find you which it won’t , then you’re definitely not going to find it.

More information: Dubai and the rest of country in general is notoriously hard to score (Despite being a transshipment point for drugs) in if you come on vacation I wouldn’t even recommend you bother, Chances are way too slim to you will score. If you live in Dubai and are unable to score despite trying, your best option is narcotourism! Morocco, Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, India aren’t too far off for a vacation and extremely affordable to travel to, Cheap tickets are abundant and it’s very much so worth it. Dubai is mostly expat residents and u can easily make a few Pakistani or Indian friends who can take you on the time of your life to their countries. Just be careful about bringing anything back, alot of stoners here fall prey to the trap of bringing in a self supply, Simple fact is ask any stoner and they will tell you its just not worth doing anything at all mj related. If you cant travel but have a private place of your own, start your own homegrow op. on the down seeds will be unobtainable (and trust me don’t order them online your not going to get it past customs) unless you get them from outside, though a homegrow op will cost you 30% of the cost it takes for a set up in the west. Hydroponics u wont find though can be built easily, though other equipment is and at dirt cheap, Dragon mart sell 1000watt MH lights for 300AED, that’s a huge hike from the price abroad! Though you’re not going to be able to share it with friends strictly your own stash, trust me on this, paranoia will kill you! And like I side earlier anyone other than you is a narc. So Stay safe and be careful and really think about it, you are after all committing a serious crime ( you get less prison time for armed robbery than you do for pot) and your enemy number one, so really really think carefully about whatever you do.

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.

Selling it will make you in trouble of at least year in detention.
