Spartanburg, SC, South Carolina

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

Legislation: Possession of under an oz(first offense): 30 days and a $100-$200 fine

Cultivation of less than 100 plants is a FELONY and up to 5 years

Law enforcement: Law enforcement in Spartanburg is very odd, but cool in a lot of ways about its enforcement. Smoking is possible on the west side, but do it while driving around on backroads. Cops patrol Blackstock and W.O. Ezell in marked and unmarked cars pretty fiercely on the west side pretty heavily. AVOID smoking in downtown at all costs. Spartanburg is trying to revitalize its downtown and will have no problem with busting a couple of potheads. Cop cars are everywhere in downtown Spartanburg. If you want to smoke, take Main Street out to the east side (coming from 26:just take WO Ezell, turn left onto W St John St, go through downtown, turn onto Main St, go all the way down to Fernwood Glendale Rd and turn right onto it-BP is across the street on your left from here). Continue to take Fernwood Glendale until you get to a stop-light near Mexico Lindo. Living in Spartanburg my whole life, I have only seen cop cars come out past this stop-light THREE times.

another reporter added:”There are two distinct sides to Spartanburg: West and East. West Side is more liberal and urbanized. Cops patrol WO Ezell and Blackstock Road heavily. Avoid smoking on the roads on the West Side. If you need to smoke in Spartanburg, drive to the East Side. Take WO Ezell to W St John St, then to E Main St. Take E Main St to Fernwood Glendale Rd, and drive on it all the way down, past the stoplight near Mexico Lindo. After living in Spartanburg practically my whole life, I have seen only seen cops out farther than here THREE times. ”

Where to buy marijuana: Eastside: There is a park called “Pill Hill” near Spartanburg High School; local HS/college students play ultimate frisbee during spring/summer on a daily basis. Play a game&talk to them and you can usually go a run and buy, if at least get smoked up. (Off of Woodburn Rd)

South-side: Camp Croft has some dealers around here, and heroin is readily available as well. Be sure to have a connection to get out here; usually safe to buy by yourself, but bring a friend just in case.

Downtown: Highland is Spartanburg’s local projects. All forms of drugs float in around here, and if you’re not black, you’re out of place. The cops know why you’re here if 1)you’re not back & 2)if you drive a somewhat decent car. Gunshots are common here, so watch yourself.

West-side:

1)Una-Ask around at Ground Zero; usually people will sell to you, even perhaps smoke with you (staff as well). However, smoke either before you go, or during the shows, and don’t do it in the parking lot. Pigs pull people over for nothing and if you’re from out of state, will put a harsh eye to you.

2)USC Upstate:Just off of I-85, Upstate sells mids. You can walk onto campus and ask around; just don’t be sketch. Blend in, and you’ll be fine.

3)SMC-SMC’s dealers normally get their shit from somewhere else, but some on-campus dealers exist. Mostly mids is here, but you can find some good stuff as well, especially from students from Charleston/Hilton Head/Columbia. Just hang around the steps of Judd Hall, and wait for a cigarette smoker to come out. Talk to them about herb, and if they don’t have any, they DEFINITELY know someone who can hook you up.

another reporter added: “Eastside-Go to Pill Hill off of Woodburn Road during the spring/summer. SHS students will be playing ultimate frisbee; take up a game and ask them about it. They most definitely will hook you up.

Southside-Camp Croft normally has dealers, but watch yourself: the Laotians and Thais are very unfriendly, seeing as how they’re involved in the heroin trade. Don’t go unless you know the dealer or middleman really well.

Westside:

1)Una-run down Hispanic ghetto near I-85. Cops sometimes come through here, but not too many worries. Decent weed out here.

2)Upstate-be sure to have a hookup going to buy out here; good stuff is available, but only if you have a contact. You’re looking to buy mids or higher out here.

3)SMC-SMC is right off of WO Ezell. Drive on to campus(only if you’re college-age-looking) and wait outside Judd Hall. Various smokers will smoke cigarettes out here. Be sure to ask one of them; they definitely know at least 1 dealer on campus. Usual stuff sold varies from SHIT to decent KB. Schwag is usually bought within Spartanburg, though mids are available, and KB can be bought from a Columbia/Charleston/Hilton Head-dealer.”

Marijuana prices: Shwag:

$20-$30/half oz

$50-$70/oz

Mids:

$25-$30/quarter oz

$45-$60/half oz

$100-$125/oz

KB:

$30/gram

$65/eigth oz

I never bought more than an eigth of KB, so I don’t know the higher prices.

Marijuana brands: Shwag, Mids, Purple Haze, Strawberry&Orange Kush

More information: As much as Spartanburg sucks, it’s an amazing marijuana town. If you’re looking for a good time, go to Pill Hill in spring/summer, or go to Judd Hall on SMC’s campus during any season, talk to students. Buy your shit on the west-side and smoke on the east-side. There’s a nice neighborhood you can ride around/walk around and smoke near Lamb of God Luthern Church on Fernwood Glendale Road. If you MUST smoke on the west side, turn onto the street RIGHT before Miracle Hill Mission House on W. St.John Street. Go over the bridge, and bare to the left of the building that they are constructing on. You can get lost around here, so be chill; sometimes there are cops, but they are more concerned with the prostitutes than weed. AVOID DOWNTOWN POT SMOKING AT ALL COSTS. And finally, scout out before you buy anything. Ask multiple people for multiple prices, and of course, be in front of the dealer when you’re buying. Local middlemen will pinch a di mebag from a quarter and claim that the dealer gave it to them, or won’t even tell you that they pinched. Watch the dealer weigh it out, and be sure you weigh it out; (s)he won’t be offended.

P.S.:

Local Headshops-The Magic Dragon(west side)&Smoker’s Edge(down-town-ish)

and some More information: Watch your shit in Spartanburg; East Side is safer to smoke on; Make sure have the bag weighed in front of you-it’s common courtesy to weigh it yourself as well. Avoid middlemen, especially from SMC. Fuck middlemen.

 

Orangeburg, SC, South Carolina

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

Legislation: Possession of one ounce or less is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of $100 – $200 for a first offense. For subsequent offenses the penalties increase to up to a year in jail and a fine of $200 – $1,000. Convictions for a first offense are eligible for conditional discharges. Possession of greater than one ounce is considered evidence of intent to sell and is punished as such.

Law enforcement: The laws against marijuana pretty much suck in SC, but it really depends on the cop. Some have a hard-on for it, some don’t. I was caught with about a gram when I was 17. Spent the night in jail and by the time it was all said and done I had gone through a PTI program plus ended up paying about $600 in fines and court costs. Be careful here, cops are everywhere and alot of them don’t have anything better to do.

Where to buy marijuana: It’s very easy to get ripped off here, especially with someone that’s from out of town. Blacks are often very reluctant to sell to whites unless you get to know them. When you do get to know someone, it is everywhere and easy to obtain. A large percentage of locals hustle on the side and are often more than happy to provide you with herb or get someone else to help you once you’ve proven you’re cool. However, ALWAYS inspect the product before buying because hustlers are looking to rip anyone off if they can, especially if you’re white.

Marijuana prices: The most commonly available is ‘reggie’ or regular weed. This most often is Mexican brick (SOMETIMES budded) and ranges in quality from piss poor to fantastic. Prices for reggie are generally: 1-1.5g for $5, 2-3.5g for $10, half for $25-30 and a whole for $50-70.

Next up is middle-grade which for me has never been a disappointment. Most often budded, good quality stuff that is often homegrown. This stuff is always a good buy. Prices are about $30-40 a quarter, $40-70 for a half and $80-140 for a whole.

KB comes around sometimes. Usually isn’t worth the price. Opt for the mid. $150+ an ounce for KB, and is usually only mediocre.

“Exotic” stuff is sometimes available if you know someone. WARNING: alot of this stuff is not official. Buyer beware. Same thing goes for anybody trying to sell you purple, kush, dro, haze etc. If you’re lucky you can get good headies for $10-15 a gram and about $200 an ounce. However, most are 20-30 a gram. Due to the smal quantity and high demand though I’ve been offered headies for as much as $40-50 a gram. Oftentimes not a whole gram.

Marijuana brands: You must be careful about what you’re buying, but you can still get the real deal. Apple Jack, some Hazes, some Kushes (I think these are mostly just Afghani and Master), Diesels every now and again, and some other strains.

More information: There are LOTS AND LOTS of smokers in this part of SC, the only thing is they are mostly private (needfully so), and are not open until you get to know them. I’d say that well over half of the people that I know under age 30 smoke weed, and most of the rest are accepting of it. You can get great stuff for a great price if you know the right connection.

Newberry, SC, South Carolina

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3

Legislation: If caught with 2 oz or more you are charged with dealing and face a fine and however many days in jail. An additional fine is also added if you are caught with 2 oz or more within 300 ft. onf a school. Anything less and you’re just charged with simple possesion and have your licence suspended if caught while driving.

Law enforcement: The Cops can be lenient AFTER they pull you over, but it doesn’t take much to draw attention. They give speeding tickets for about 2 mph over the speed limit.

Where to buy marijuana: Go to the college, but don’t blink, cause you’ll miss it. It’s a small school with a bad drug habit. So you’re in luck if school’s in.

Marijuana prices: This definitely depends on who your dealer is. Be suspicious of a rip off. You should generally get about 30 grams of great dro for about $10.

Marijuana brands: dro, crypt, swag, dro, and mids… but mostly dro…

More information: Not much else to do around here other than buy sell and smoke, so enjoy.

Head over to andolines pizza and while your there ask one of the most “down with it” servers if they can point you in the right direction of some nug’s they’ll help you out as long as your not to sketchy, if that doesnt work try senor tequila’s next to boaters world

If you want headie’s- ak47:

take a look at some of mount pleasant’s-charleston’s mom and pop music stores, just walk in, browse through, and strike conversation, if he seems cool then ask him if he knows were to buy, it should go well… just remember for this approch stay away from franchise stores…

Myrtle Beach, SC, South Carolina

Greenville, SC, South Carolina

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

Legislation: It’s illegal. For posession of under an ounce its a misdemeanor with a fine of something like 200 USD. If you have over an ounce or multiple baggies you can be arrested for distribution and face jail time and/or a hefty fine.

Law enforcement: I’ve been here most my life and have heard of maybe 3 times when the cops took the bud and didn’t prosecute. They pretty much always prosecute.

Where to buy marijuana: A good place to look would be the local bar scene. Go by Blue Ridge, G-Spot, or Chicora Alley. Look for people who seem down and offer to buy a beer or just strike up a conversation. You should be able to find some after a few rounds with a local. If your desperate you can go to a high traffic area (the mall, Cleveland Park, etc) and try to find someone who looks helpful and high.

Marijuana prices: Good BC (beasters) go for about 50 an 1/8th, 300 an ounce. The shwag varies a bit in price and alot in quality. A 1/4 goes for 25 an ounce from 90 to 100. You are more likely to find shwag (if thats your thing) from high school kids and black people.

Marijuana brands: I don’t put much stock in names usually. Though sometimes if you are in the know people have good stuff with a name (Jack Herrer, Durban, White Widow, etc). This stuff usually comes from Asheville or ATL.

More information: Don’t be too outgoing when searching. Nonsmokers may find a cop and local stoners will probably assume you are a narc. Explain your situation, in town for whatever, and be very appreciative of any help and you should be able to get high.

when i graduated high school i rented a house in hilton head with three friends for a week and when we got there we realized that it was a family kinda place and we were pissed. none the less, go to the salty dog, there’s an ice cream shop around the corner, chill there as it gets dark cuz there are other people that age looking to score or who want to sell some. just ask around. the first night there i asked some random kid who just looked scrubby, not hippy or anything, and in less than 5 minutes got like 4 grams of wacky buds for $20. there’s also beer sold in the gift shop and just talk to the (hot) girls working there. they will sell to you. and go to da vinci’s pizza when you’re high, its not on the menu, but make them make you a barbeque chicken pizza with just chix and bbq….it will make you go insane. then watch jeepers creepers and have some girls from the ice cream store come over. then have a party on the beach for the next week and you’ll love it there.

Legislation: If caught with 2 oz or more you are charged with dealing and face a fine and however many days in jail.

Law enforcement: Law enforcement won’t trip over a few grams they are after meth. Pretty cool cops just don’t be stupid and you’ll be fine.

Where to buy marijuana in Columbia: You can find it out on farrow road. It’s considered the most dangerous part of columbia but you should be fine. You can find people selling 2 gram dime bags out in front of apartments. You usually need to find someone who can introduce you to people if your looking for Ounces. People out there smoke blunts on their front porch, it’s not hard to find.

Columbia marijuana prices: It’s usually $30-40 for a half ounce and $60-70 for ounces of high-mids. You can find sour diesel and sour apple and dro. Name-Brand costs about 300 an ounce.

Dro is usually 200-240 an ounce.

Brands:Sour Diesel, Sour Apple, Blue Berry and sticky-icky.

More information: I wouldn’t suggest giving large amounts of money to people out there to get you bud from a dealer. See if you can go with them, there is a chance you can get jacked. The bud in general is good and very cheap. Every one is selling.

Charleston, SC, South Carolina

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

Law enforcement: They got better things to worry about, but won’t double think busting you.

another reporter added: “Cops are bad, and there is a lot of them. Mount Pleasant is bad, and the Isle Of Palms (especially by the Windjammer and the other beach-type restaurants) is worse. ”

Where to buy marijuana in Charleston: The better the hookup, the better the weed you are going to get. Though if your a tourist and in an emergency, you should go to CofC, or in/ or around the Music Farm and surrounding parking garages. On the Isle of Palms, look for stoner type/ indie kids, they can usually lead you in the right direction. One tip of advice is never look like a stereo-typical tourist.

Charleston marijuana prices: 1/8=$50

In 1/8s

Shwag – 10$

Beasters – 20- 30$ (Mids)

Kush – 30-50$ (Some Kush is really good though, most of the time though it’s decent)

Northern Lights 50 -70 (50 if you have a hookup, and its readily available. It goes up based on hookup and availibility.)

Black Russian, Afghan Kush, Hash, danker stuff depends on the dealer. But is typically overpriced.

Brands: Mostly Beasters, and Lower of the line Kush. In weeks leading up to holidays, there is a higher demand and better stuff comes.

More information: Be smart smoke in houses, or anywhere away from the police.

Clemson, SC, South Carolina

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

Legislation: If caught with 2 oz or more you are charged with dealing and face a fine and however many days in jail. An additional fine is also added if you are caught with 2 oz or more within 300 ft. onf a school. Anything less and you’re just charged with simple possesion and have your licence suspended if caught while driving.

It’s illegal. Posession of less than an ounce is a 200 dollar fine or so. Posession of more or multiple baggies may get you a distribution charge and jail time.

Law enforcement: The cops on campus are absolute assholes about drugs, they’ve been known to bust into rooms on the mere mention there might be pot. Don’t smoke or sell on campus, you are just asking for trouble. The city cops aren’t as bad though they’d still bust you if they found it. Smoke indoors or on porches and there shouldn’t be a problem.

Where to buy marijuana: Students are the best resource, though on campus the police use narcs alot. I’d recommend looking in town at the bars. Being a college town there are lots of stoners/dealers around. Just be cool about approaching people, be honest and you shouldn’t have trouble finding some bud by the end of the day.

Marijuana prices: 50 an 1/8th, 300 an ounce for decent nugget. For shwag, umm, just don’t buy the shwag here. Some will have it but it’s absolute shit in my opinion. I wouldn’t let my dog smoke it.

Marijuana brands: Some stuff comes from Atlanta with this name or that but mainly it’s just generic BC bud.

More information: I can’t stress the need for discretion on campus. I’ve never been caught there but have had too many close calls in my 9 months of living on campus. Actually more than any other time in my life. Just be cool and explain why you don’t already have some from a friend and you shouldn’t have too much problems. Just look for fellow stoners and be friendly. Oh and dont smoke at tailgates during football season. They ship in like 500 cops for those things and those guys have absolutely nothing better to do for 90 percent of the tailgating time.
