There are certain party spots, such as Thatcher Woods, where you can find small amounts for sale, of reggie.

Very safe from crime if you stay in the town, but around it, not so safe. You may get rippedd off by a punk ass dealer though. Look out.

You cannot smoke on the street, or at least we would not recommend this.

If you get caught – chances are if your young you’re gonna get hit hard. The older you are the more lenient it will be for you.

You can buy it anywhere hang out around east state street in the mcdonalds by the wendy’s at night(you’ll always get it there) but you can also easily get screwed over there too just make sure you dont mess with anybody else- there are people in rockford who will shoot you there even if you look like you’ll screw them over.

Schaumburg, IL, Illinois

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

Legislation: Same as all of Illinois MJ is illegal and the standard rules apply, the penalty to watch out for is possesion of over 3.5g and a scale or baggies, cops will hit you with intent to deal

Law enforcement: Average, not particulary observant or prevalent but stay off the main streets at night, namely Biesterfield/Wise, Plum Grove, Schaumburg and Roselle. If you do get stopped be polite and it’s possible the Police will just dump or take your weed and pieces.

Where to buy marijuana: It’s tough to buy in Schaumburg without having a hookup. However, If you can convince young adults seen smoking that you are not police they will most likely be willing to hook you up. The only other options are to try to get some at a local bar such as the Alumni Club or Bamboo Room, or cruise around for a house party. Beware the bars though Undercover Cops are frequent visitors.

Marijuana prices: 25-30 USD for Regs (1/8th) 50-60 USD for Hydro (1/8th)

Marijuana brands: Dro is by far the most prevalent type of weed in Schaumburg and most of the weed will be of good quality. It is also possible to get Regs but this is a good deal harder to find because there is not much demand for it. Occasionally some Blueberry, White Widow, and Hawiian Gold will be around but don’t expect to get any without a good hookup.

More information: Schaumburg isn’t a bad place to smoke and the best way to do it is to roll around the many neighborhoods and side streets in a car. Also walking around on the streets is pretty low risk. Without a hookup getting weed is tough but possible; but I recommend finding a friend or acquaintance who can get you a number.

Where to buy marijuana: Quincy is defintly a hookup town. You need to know people to get herb. If needed talk to kids, hoods, blacks, anyone looking and acting the part.

and also: “Best place to ask around is the college on 18th. as in most places, colleges attract the drugs and most of the kids there could lead you to someone who could lead you to the right people, its a small school, and mostly everybody is stoner friendly”

Marijuana prices: Quincy has its good days and has different strains of danky bud.

$20 a gram for dank

$15 or 10 for a gram of middies (depending on seller) $10 for 2 grams of schwag keep in mind the better the dealer the better the deals

More information: A good place to blaze and maybe find some bud is Southpark. Also hit up 60’s spirt, a locally owned headshop with some sick bongs and pieces. Quincy is a drug infested town, alot of hard drugs, but it does have its days.

Northbrook, IL, Illinois

You cannot smoke on the street, or at least we would not recommend this.

Law Enforcement: The cops around here LIVE to bust people for DUI and weed. If you’re a young’un driving at night, they’ll frequently follow you and sometimes pull you over for things like “you have a license plate light out”, then ask to search your car. Just be calm, polite, and know your rights (you don’t have to submit to a search). Do NOT smoke on the street and definitely not in any public areas (parks, etc.), but smoking in a car (as long as it’s moving), house, or backyard is fine. Also, don’t leave anything in plain view.

Where to buy Marijuana in Northbrook, IL.: Due to the law enforcement in Northbrook, no one’s going to offer any to strangers flat out. The dealers like to keep their names out of it because law enforcement is harsh. Look for skaters and other counterculture types, and work something into the conversation. Most even if they don’t smoke themselves, know someone who does or a dealer. They hate the cops in this town too, so they won’t turn you in for asking.

Marijuana prices: It’s damn near impossible to find anything but the best, however it’s priced that way too.

1/8: $60, $50 if you know someone (don’t ever pay more than $60 an 1/8 for bud. Occasionally you’ll meet someone here that tries to play businessman)

1/4: $100-110

Basically for anything larger than an eighth or quad, you either have to know someone or go somewhere else. Most dealers here are too paranoid (for a good reason) to sell larger amounts to a first time customer.

Marijuana brands: Mostly hydro, skunk red hair. Sometimes you can get BC Beasters for $50. Don’t trust any brands that people tell you like “Maui Wowie”.

 

Ottawa, IL, Illinois

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

2,000 to 5,000 g felony 3 – 7 years $25,000

More than 5,000 g felony 4 – 15 years $25,000

Law enforcement: I don’t have many run ins with the cops, but your best bet is don’t get caught. I was told that if it’s an older cop and you haven’t had any run ins he’ll take the weed and let you go, I was also told that the younger cops are the worse. Just avoid the cops and you’ll be fine.

Where to buy marijuana: The more people you know the better the deal, be very careful though there are people that will rip you off (I’ve seen a kid get weed snatched from his hand) The best time is on friday and saturday nights. Downtown, lower lots and the skate park are your best bets. Parks are an option if you see some people there but BEWARE, it is possible that some parks and the skate park will have cameras.

Marijuana prices: These prices are from a dealer I know, they seem about adverage for this town, but like I said you’re better off knowing people for better deals so expect to pay more.

Marijuana brands: Shwag, Commercial, 30/60, and Dro are the norm for this area. Shwag and Commercial are pretty cheap and very common. Dro is expensive and not as common (expect to pay a minimum of $20 for a g). 30/60 is my personal favorite, it’s a midgrade between commercial and dro, and it’s affordable.

More information: The town of Ottawa is well known for the Happy Meal that had weed stashed in it. Here’s a news link:

Park Ridge, IL, Illinois

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

Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in Illinois, and so is any activity related to marijuana (possession, cultivation, and of course dealing).

Park Ridge is an upper class suburb of Chicago. Marijuana in Park Ridge is considered by many people living there to be as bad as most hard drugs. Taking a five minute drive or 15 minute walk to Des Plaines (a neighboring town) could save you over $1,000 in bond..

Law Enforcement: Park Ridge police ARE NOT friendly, meaning smoking in public while your in Park Ridge is not a good idea. Pipes with cannabis resin will get you busted. One gram of cannabis will get you a night in Park Ridge’s City Hall, or a $1,000 bail. While driving, make sure your cannabis is out of sight! Other people driving next to you would love to call the police with your license plate number so they can see a bust and “help” Park Ridge.

another reporter added: “They will try much to bust anyone possible. Mainly younger but they will go at anyone. They will shat on your constitutional rights. Don’t smoke anywhere public, don’t buy in any area near a school zone. Try and buy your bud somewhere out of town”

Where to buy marijuana in Park Ridge:

Again, not a good idea. Uptown Park Ridge is small, but on weekends full of people and of course a few cops. If you see a teenager or early 20 year old standing idle Uptown, asking them will not hurt you. Although BE CAREFUL! The town of Park Ridge likes to work as a community, meaning that while your asking for your weed, if someone was to overhear you, busted.

another reporter added: “out of town. There are no street dealers that I know of, contacts are your best bet.”

Marijuana Prices:

20 USD for a Gram of dank

50,55.60 for an eight of dank

100-110 for a quad*

150-165 for a half

300-330 for an ounce

More Information: Remember, Park Ridge is a very high class town. Dealers there are quite wealthy and or spoiled, be careful not to get ripped off.

some shaddy dealers weight wise, quilty usally good, never smoke in your car in the town. If you are arrested you will spend a night in lock-up. Don’t ask around for weed find it through people you know. Don’t smoke in public view. The forested areas should be good as long as you have a reason for being there (walking dog)
