“part from the ruins opposite Acropolis… most of the weed going around Athens is through local contacts… you have to know someone… no hash/weed street dealing.

Generally in down town Athens, it s easier to obtain heroin rather than hash/weed .

Generally it s Much easier to score during the summer.. you can smell hash/weed almost in every beach in & around athens A good spot during summertime is Kavouri beach and Limanakia… during summer it s for sure that you find people smoking there… and most of the times willing to share or/and sell you some”

another reporter added: “Street dealing is not common in Athens. You can find some law quality weed in Monastiraki area from Albans or gypsies but is not recommended. Full of seeds, not any kind of high. General rules must be followed as everywhere. Never give any money before you see the weed. Changes that you get even average quality from the street is very low.

Find a dealer, then give the order (ask what he’s got & prices) & finally wait (maybe even a few hours) to get the stuff & pay the price.

The majority of transations in Athens are arranged indoors. Be aware of the police. You are more safe dealing with Greeks, not Albans or Gypsies (this is not racism). Never carry a lot of weed or hash with you. Police can bust you
