Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

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

Legislation: A new bill, passed by the Mexican Federal Legislature in late April 2006, has not yet been signed into law, but would decriminalize very small amounts of cannabis (under 5g) but would stiffen penalties for larger amounts and remove current discretion judges about the definition of “personal use amounts”.

Cannabis is illegal in all forms in Mexico and possession can result in stiff fines and long jail sentences. Police can often be bribed on the spot and it is said that police plant cannabis on innocent bystanders near the U.S. border in order to solicit bribes from tourists. (Unconfirmed, thanks MW and JH)

Law enforcement: Cabo is a tourist funded city, and as such the cops try not to scare many people away by busting them.

Where to buy marijuana: The main beach vendors or any of the small local trinket shops If for some reason you havent been aproached by one any of the beach vendors can either sell you some or point you to one of the many guys on the beach who can. Any of the trinket shops selling pipes will too.

Marijuana prices: approx. 10 grams for 30 dollars. Never take the first price they offer, they will go down quickly when they realize your not a chump and will bring the price down fast. In under a minute i went from 70 for aprox 10 grams to 30 and got a free wooden pipe. They make their money on dumb tourists who pay us prices

Marijuana brands: Not sure, medium strong Sativa, by no means brown frown. compressed, probaly from a brick at one point. dont be decived by “small” sized bags.

More information: It is hard to find rolling papers in alot of the stores and most of the cigars are useless for blunts. If they are not branded they could be a cheap mexican ciggarette wraped in a tobbaco leaf stuck into a plastic mouthpeice , i was tricked int o buying one of these useless things.

If you find a store with rolling papers or a machine made cigars buy them they are hard to come by.

Legislation: The “Codigo Penal” law at “Articulo 195Bis” specify a max. of 250Grams to be considered personal consuming and not to be procecuted. And 5Grams of Hash. But many local laws are in conflict with this federal law. So many states and cities are more “illegal” than others.

Law Enforcement: Police are all corrupt and will look for big money off you if caught. The average cop in Cancun retires at 45!

Where to buy marijuana in Cancun: Flea Markets. Taxi drivers. Bought some decent bud at the local flea market where the guys had it stashed under some t-shirts for sale!

Bought the best smoke on the isla Mejeures trip where the guy had nice bags stashed inside a hi-fi which also doubled as a till for money.

Another reporter added: “Was at my all inclusive hotel for ten minutes and just walked up to the first guy who looked like he partied and asked him if he knew where to get bud. He took me to his room and we toked a bowl of average, brown mexican weed. He gave me a phone number of a taxi driver who would hook me up. Taxi driver came within a few hours and I got some green and white cheap.”

and also: ” go to just about any small shop, there is a flea market right on the main road just go into one of the shops and look at pipes or something and somebody will usually come up and ask if u need any smoke or sniff. if you say yes they will bring you upstairs where you can get just about anything you want there.”

Cancun marijuana Prices: $100 for nice big bag probably around 10g. You can barter with the guys for a better price.

Another reporter added: “$20 U.S. for about a quarter ounce of dark-green (Indica maybe) average tasting weed, but the high was really good. Only needed a pinner for a great buzz.”

Cancun marijuana Brands: Don’t know but usual normal weed with a few seeds etc and not very sticky. The stuff from the Island was a laughing tonic and we did enjoy it.

Where to buy marijuana: There’s Santa Fe, where you can find it very easy. And actually is very easy in every place, but watch out, because in poor places “sholos” will try to steal wathever you have.

Hermosillo is very small so you can call the diller and if you buy 50gr or more they even go to you.

Marijuana prices: 1 peso – 1 gram

80 or 90 pesos – 100 grams

500…800 – 1 kilo if you want a kilo is going to be harder to find

OF WEED YOU CAN SPEND ONE YEAR IN JAI IF YOU SELL IT- UP TO 20 YEARS IN PRISION

Law enforcement: There is no a law enforcement in this place. is a beach with no rules, in the case you get busted (rare), give the pigs ur watch or maybe an ipod as a bribe and they will release you ALWAYS. you can have fun with a lot of liberty in those places… MARUATA-NEXPA ETC all the beaches around.

Where to buy marijuana: You can find weed everywhere, dowtown, beach, hotels, cribs, the best place to look is in the beach where also you can stay with some native people just paying 4 or 5 bucks a day and also buying weed to them, believe they will hook u up with some of the best BUD you will ever try on mexico.

Marijuana prices: this is the best part, low prices-quality mota..you can get one quarto ( 250 gr) paying only 35 usd, if u find someone (surfers & natives) you´ll be able to get the kilo (1000gr) by the cost of 80-90 usd, u can aslo find coke,lsd,opium,caldo de zopilote, shrooms, crack and some magic pills.

Veracruz, Mexico

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

Legislation: The “Codigo Penal” law at “Articulo 195Bis” specify a max. of 250Grams to be considered personal consuming and not to be procecuted. And 5Grams of Hash. But many local laws are in conflict with this federal law. So many states and city’s are more “illegal” than others.

Law Enforcement: I was stopped once for smoking in the street (not a good idea and i do not recommend it) and when they didn’t find anything on me they let me go…and gave me back a pipe i had in my backpack. most of what I hear is that you will pay at least 100 pesos and at most 100 depending on the circumstances.

Where to buy marijuana in Veracruz: anywhere in centro if you ask a car washer (the guys with the red rags that help cars park and then offer to wash them) or some of the hippy (rasta) looking guys on the malecon but be carefull…that’s also where the navy hangs out. the beach is ok (next to the acuario, playa del mar) but there is a heavy police presence and the guys that the last reporter was talking about are known by the police. a better place is near playa martin where the large city flag pole is.

Veracruz marijuana Prices: i usually get a half oz of decent commercial red bud for about 50 pesos (5 usd) and joints (big suckers, like 2 grams) for 10 pesos (1 usd) centro is more expensive…20 pesos for the same joint. but dont be afraid to barter or even say no thank you…i’ve had dealers cut the price in half when i started to walk away.

More information: I’m a “tourist” from seattle but i live here and have gotten familiar with where to go and how to get it at local prices. the best thing to do is make a friend that lives here and smokes weed or is at least tollerant of it. keep in mind if you’re from the US that pot has much more of a stigma here. many people consider it the same as coke or heroin so be carefull who you let know that you smoke.

Mexico City, Mexico

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

Legislation: The “Codigo Penal” law at “Articulo 195Bis” specify a max. of 250Grams to be considered personal consuming and not to be procecuted. And 5Grams of Hash. But many local laws are in conflict with this federal law. So many states and city’s are more “illegal” than others.

Law Enforcement: If you are ever caught smoking or carrying grass, do not panic, the police in Mexico city will most surely be willing to come to an arrangement, the only difference in the amount of time they will harass you, and the amount of money they will ask for, this depends on how you treat them. I always recommend being POLITE, CALM, and accepting you mistake and asking them for to help you, they will usually tell you that in order to help you, you must help them in return, meaning they will set a price on your liberty that is always at least double of what you should actually pay, so be clever and talk them in to charging less money, specially if you are tourist. Locals like me, usually pay between 15-30 usd, foreigners may have to pay double. Remember always that even if you are taking you police headquarters, you will end up being released due to the fact that if you are only carrying one kind of drug, and in small amounts, it is not considered a criminal offense.

Where to buy marijuana in Mexico City: Go to Coyoacan, to the big street market on the main squre.

There are lot’s of hippies selling clothes, pipes, etc. Ask around the ones that sell pipes.

and also: “As a tourist you will most certainly pay a higher price for your weed, and if you are looking for a easy place to buy a small amount, even if at higher prices (20gr = 20-30usd), try the going to the Zona Rosa, and look for a street called Amberes, most of the guys who will wash cars or take care of them (not offical valets), sell small amounts of pot, in my experience they are only around from 5 to 11pm.

Or try Xochimilco, if you are visting this area, ask the locals for a place called Embarcadero de belem, and then ask of the little chapel that is located nearby (1-2 streets away), look for guys that are lurking around selling pot, they will most surely come and offer, prices are good considering the nice quality of the weed, 30grs cost 15USD.”

Mexico city marijuana Prices: 6 to 10 USD for a 50 to 100Gram Pack. $100USD for a Kilo.

and also: “I got 10gs for 150 pesos in 10 minutes.”

Mexico city marijuana Brands: Taxco Guerrero, Chiapas, And Many other.

More information: Making friends with young local people is not hard at all, and there is a big chance of being able to meet other smokers by doing so, do not be afraid, middle class and low class youngsters, are very friendly, and usually have good information and tips as to where to buy your grass.
