Marijuana Laws in Des Moines

By Iowa law, the possession of any amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. For a second offense the penalties increase to up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,500. Subsequent offenses are punishable by up to two years and a fine of $500 – $5,000. There is the possibility for conditional discharge for possession charges. Possession within 1,000 feet of a school, public park, swimming pool or recreation center adds an additional 100 hours of community service to the sentence.

In 2014 Iowa legalized the use of CBD to be prescribed by doctors to children with epilepsy and people with serious diseases. However, only low THC/high CBD concentrates are allowed and the Iowa courts refused to allow marijuana to be manufactured in Iowa. So basically these idiots have given parents a way to help their children but must break federal laws by going to a medical state to obtain it and transporting over state lines.

Law Enforcement

Law enforcement is very light for the most part, and most times driving around the cops won’t bother you. If you get pulled over and have bud on you, normally if you act cool they will just let you go.

However the suburb of Windsor Heights is an area you should know about, the police here are known to pull people over for less than 5mph over the speed limit. It is a small area, but if you travel from West Des Moines, Urbandale, or Waukee to the city of Des Moines there is a chance you could pass through this neighborhood. Here is Windsor Heights on google maps.

Cops here will target the youth and likely attempt to search your vehicle or call a K9 unit, even though they operate unlawfully it is not worth having to go to court, because these cops will take you to jail for having the smallest pipe or stem and have no remorse. If you are of color (black/latino) or you drive a suspicious or older vehicle don’t even think about coming through on a weekend night because you will be profiled and targeted.

A recent report is: “much worse than previously reported. des moines cops can be pretty chill but suburbs (urbandale, windsor heights, johnston, west des moines, clive) are all horrible.”

Where to buy marijuana in Des Moines

Older advice suggested going to MLK Dr. however this has become a lot more shadier than it used to be. You probably won’t score dank here and most likely will be ripped off. You most likely need a connection.

You might be lucky meeting someone at the bars on Court Ave or at any concerts or events. Smokers can be seen at the disc golf courses if the weather is nice, as there are probably 10 within a half-hour of Des Moines. Recently the suburb of Ankeny went viral when an officer tried to trick a kid into consenting to search his car because he had a disc golf bag. Video Here

To sum it up you must know someone to get a legit hookup, or be social and meet them. You could drive around the city all day looking for people and not find anyone who knows where to get anything. East/South/North side can have some sketchy neighborhoods, but just avoid Windsor Heights.

Another reporter added: “don’t buy around here, especially near mlk parkway as stated before, everyone will rip you off, just tonight I came home $42 short”

Marijuana prices in Des Moines

For anything considered dank you should expect to pay $20/g, $60/8th, $300+/oz. If you have a hookup $50/8th is more common and maybe even cheaper. Most bud you get people will say its from California or Colorado. Due to Colorado being a halfs day drive you can definitely find all the wax, hashes, and signature strains but also the typical no-name dank and homegrown stuff.

Schwag and mids is of course still around, the bud in Des Moines has its ups and downs. Most of the time its some pretty decent stuff.

Most of the time you are only going to get what your looking for around here if you have a connection you know.

Gainesville/Haymarket, Virginia

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2
Legislation: In the commonwealth, 10+ is a FELONY. Watch out.
Law Enforcement: These guys are dicks. YOU WILL get charged for even a stem or seed and they are just itching to search your car. However, if you know your rights they’ll go ahead and let you go as long as you’re also acting straight. Helps being white and not being decked out in Marley clothes.
Where to buy Marijuana in Gaineville/Haymarket, Va:
As long as you know high schoolers and/or young adults, you won’t have a problem finding bud. Even people like me who at one point didn’t smoke (during my high school days)could easily phone someone who would have it.
Gainesmarket Marijuana Prices:
1 g – $20
1/8 oz. – $60
1/4. – $110, avg though I’ve heard anywhere from $100-120
$10 a pop. Sometimes, something in between mids and loud will cost $15/pop
Brands: Apparently, Ak-47 was first grown here. Other than that, almost all dank (blueberry, purple, diesel, green crack, kush, blue cheese, white widow etc). Dank is extremely easy to find and mids are quite a bit harder to locate. Can’t really ever find hashish.
More information: these towns are part of the wealthiest region in the U.S. and are overpopulated, including many young people with high income parents who have nothing else to buy. You will find good bud if you know kids. There are cops everywhere unfortunately who have no problems stopping and searching and you’re going to come across people who have been busted. Be especially vigilant in the town of Haymarket, where the “I can count the number of cops on one hand” piggies have nothing to do. Lot of sweet backroads for smoke rides, you’ll find them. Check out all the Civil War history in the area.

Quantico, Virginia

It is actually really easy to get bud in town. The only really sketchy part is if you have to bring it on base. Otherwise, you can find it in the bars if you look for the right guys. The town is full of drug users of all types. The town cops are assholes and will pull over for any minor infraction, and they patrol on foot during the day. The military police are assholes too and will pull over for any thing, like not using your turn signal or failing to come to a complete stop, even ashing your cigarette out of the window. But if you’re in town it’s pretty easy.

Woodinville, WA, Washington

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

Legislation: A majority of Washington citizens voted in favor of medical marijuana in November 1998. “Fifty-nine percent of voters approved Measure 692 on November 3, 1998. The law took effect on that day. It removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess “valid documentation” from their physician affirming that he or she suffers from a debilitating condition and that the “potential benefits of the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks.” Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; HIV or AIDS; epilepsy; glaucoma; intractable pain (defined as pain unrelieved by standard treatment or medications); and multiple sclerosis. Other conditions are subject to approval by the Washington Board of Health. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess or cultivate no more than a 60-day supply of marijuan

a. The law does not establish a state-run patient registry.


Senate Bill 6032, which takes effect on July 22, 2007, mandates the Department of Health to “adopt rules defining the quantity of marijuana that could reasonably be presumed to be a sixty-day supply for qualifying patients.” The Department is instructed to report its findings to the legislature by July 1, 2008.

Patients who possess larger quantities of cannabis than those approved by the Department will continue to receive legal protection under the law if they present evidence indicating that they require such amounts to adequately treat their qualifying medical condition.

Senate Bill 6032 also affirms changes previously recommended by the state’s Medical Quality Assurance Commission to expand the state’s list of qualifying conditions to include Crohn’s disease, hepatitis c, and any “diseases, including anorexia, which results in nausea, vomiting, wasting, appetite loss, cramping, seizures, muscle spasms, and/or spasticity, when these symptoms are unrelieved by standard treatments or medications.”

The new law also limits the ability of police to seize medicinal cannabis that is “determined … [to be] possessed lawfully [by an authorized patients] under the … law.” Source:

Law enforcement: Hardly anyone gets pulled over in Woodinville, so driving while smoking is usually pretty safe. Hollywood Hill area is the least sketch, I have lived there my whole life and seen only a few cops.

Where to buy marijuana: The Woodinville Skate Park, or ask some Woodinville High School kids. About every other WHS smoker is a weed dealer or knows one. Common dealing places, although I wouldn’t recommend because everyone knows about them, are the side lot of the Woodinville Safeway and the side lot of Top Foods.

Marijuana prices: Dubs: $20 1.7-1.9

Eights: $40 3.4-3.6

Half Ounce is usually about $135-$140

Ounce depends on who you go through..I can get $210

Law Enforcement: In the borough of west chester, you need to be very coy as the cops have come down hard an all types of illegal activities because of all the rich yuppie assholes moving to the area ruining this once small, chill little college town. Cops patrol mainly in cars but on weekends and in nicer weather, bike cops parole the town to(watch out for these guys, there sneaking little wanks)

Where to buy marijuana in West Chester PA : Street deals are almost non existent, but on occasion of nice weather and the planets in alignment, there is a chance. Stay away from the dorms as the campus police like to think that they actually are cops with jurisdiction off campus. In downtown west chester by the 7-11 you can chill and watch people going in a buying blunts, if you dont look like a narc you can approach these people and ask for a hook up. some people are cool, and some are complete assholes. The coffee shop fanarrios(great coffee, a must if ones in a higher mood) is also a good place to check out as alot of punks/goths/hippies chill in and out in front, look for some people wearing tyedie playing hackysac. Other places to check out are the local bars, Kildares(although a richer crowd now inherits the place) Ryans Pub or Barnybys, alot of college kids frequent these bars as well. There is also the local head shop Moonflower next to Taylors music, if your in town for a while and frequent the place and dont look like a cop, some of the younger people who work there might just hook you up(bought an 8th of some purple kush from one of the ladies there, awesome) other than that, try and look for some skateboarders trying to skate the shitty spots in town before they get the cops called on them(I’m one of them).

Marijuana Prices in West Chester PA: 10 a gram average, 230-290 an ounce

A couple of years ago, prices were noticably less as to what they are now. This is from a combination of key players getting busted, and then rebusted. And from an decreased tollerance of just about anything that annoys the local police deparment.

Mids- readily available $5 for a little under two gs

Beasters- $15 are available but harder to find now

Headies-$20-25 pending on quality and who you know Heads as their called are readily available all year round if you know who to talk to.

Mids, beasters, white strains, northern lights, hazes, kush, and some more rarities.

More information: west chester used to be a small chill college town, but for some damn reason, rich people decided that this would be a good place to move to and are coming in the droves. Prices on everything have been driven up because of this. If you see a long haired kid out skateboarding downtown wearing reggae colors, feel free to stop and inquire, Ill be more than happy to help you out(although you wont find me in the winter, ill be high:) in the mountains snowboarding)

We thank our intrepid LOCAL reporter, for get us this good as gold info!!!

Woodstock, NY, New York

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

Legislation: Typical New York State Laws Apply. Possession is largely decriminalized. Selling and Manufacturing is not.

Law enforcement: Mostly local police are around but as long as you are not violent, they will seldom mess with you. Police are like anyone else, some do not want to do their jobs unless they have to, others are gung-ho and will arrest anyone at the first opportunity. Don’t make the police have to do their job and you’ll be fine.

Where to buy marijuana: Where not? It’s Woodstock! Hang out, be social, and ask around. There aren’t a ton of sources, but most fellow smokers will let you chill with little if any questions asked. If you hang out enough you might become privied to certain information. Check out the drum circles, and talk to fellow shoppers in certain and browsers. Don’t be aggressive…just chill. There is a very laid back vibe and if you are too gung-ho in your pursuits then you’re going to turn people off. The Village Green is called the Village Green for a reason…find out where it is, bring yourself and just chill. Keep your ear out for events, shows, and gatherings at nearby hotspots.

Marijuana prices: Not cheap, but all types can be found. Usually 40+ for an 1/8 and that is the smallest quantity you’ll find. Every once in a while some rarities can be found or otherwise observed with the senses…$500+ for a lid.

Marijuana brands: NYC Sour Diesel, Mexican Mids (about 33 – 40% of the crop),Trainwreck, Amnesia Haze (you’ll know it when you toke it….you’ll have trouble recalling even your name or the last 5 minutes for about 8 hours) Woodstock Widow (basically very neon greenish with white hairs, sativa, seedless, very smooth smoke taste, almost pine sol like smell…. This is a tourist trap so there is always a wide array of strains around…check the B&Bs

More information: Woodstock is a melting pot of people, and not everyone smokes. Respect the locals and don’t be a dick. There are some health nuts and family values centered people who do not appreciate having our favorite thing within their sensory perception. You can crack open a room or car window and let the sweet smell drift, but don’t drive around or make bold public displays. There are plenty of nooks and crannies and even woods to just vegetate, meditate, and take a puff or two (yes, one or two…joints and blunts are not popular). Also check the hiking trails and recreation areas near by…the Catskill Park affords many opportunities and the rangers are not going to hunt you down as long as you carry it out and put it out. Check out the shops and restaurants…of course Woodstock is a tourist trap, but if you’re looking for a temporary reprieve from the rigors of life, it’s two and a half hours from just about everywhere yet in the center of it all.

Washington township, NJ, New Jersey

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

Legislation: New Jersey CDS laws apply. Possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana or being under the influence of marijuana is a disorderly persons offense, punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Possession of greater than 50 grams is punishable by up to 18 month in jail and a fine of up to $25,000. Any possession within 1,000 feet of a school adds an additional 100 hours or more of community service to the sentence.

Law enforcement: Most of the cops are dickhs, and you can easily get prohbation and fines, occasinally they will confiscate your weed (most likely to smoke themselves) rarely they will just look the other way.

Just try to stay smart, smoke in, or outside, of someones house. I’ve smoked in the middle of streets, but if you do that make sure your not at, or near one of those houses where a bunch of teenagers hang out and make a bunch of noise, and get the cops called all the time. cops will randomly check up on those houses time to time, and sometimes they will even use a search light to look in back yards. (i live 4 doors down from one of those houses, but i’m still completly comfortable smoking in my own back yard with quiet groups of 10 or less)

When attending a party; if most of the attendees are high school kids and theres a keg (theres always a keg) I’d say don’t risk bringing weed, they always get busted, and sometimes the cops like to “teach kids a lesson” (and that lesson is don’t go to a high school kegger with weed).

if most attendees are 19 or up, you can feel safe bringing a good amount of weed. There’s usually a blunt sparked at all times. i wouldn’t suggest bringing any pieces that you can’t fit in a book bag. cops will park outside partys and watch the cars leaving, looking for drunk drivers, so drive carefully. Also, try to have a sober driver, cops respect that.

If you have to resort to smoking in a car, drive. do not park and spark, not in a parking lot, not in a “secret spot”, not anywhere. cops are everywhere, and the cops all grew up in twp, and probably used to bake out the same spot in the woods that “nobody knows about” when they were your age.

When driving stay in developments, try not to venture onto any major roads or intersections, because cops love giving traffic tickets. turn the windshield de-fogger on high, crack the windows, and light a saftey cigarette to cover the smell. pass low, if you get pulled while smoking you’re screwed, Twp has alot of k-9 units, and they are usually there minutes after you get stopped, sometimes before the cop even gets out of his car.

Where to buy marijuana: Your best bet is to go to club wawa (on the corner of Greentree Rd and Egg Harbor Rd) or getto wawa (the one near Birches West) and ask anyone from ages 19-29.

You could also look for ppl that are hanging out in parking lots (be sure to check acme, shop rite, kohls, and walmart) there’s not much to do in washington twp , many hang out in parking lots and are more then willing to help a fellow stoner in time of need.

Birches West is also a good place to ask anyone you see standing outside near the street.

Marijuana prices: Grams usually range from 10-20 and get what you pay for most of the time.

8ths are usually 30-40 for mids, 50-90 for better shit, once again you get whay you pay for.

Os are usually 110 or more. occasionally ill hear someone get them for like 90, but i think who ever says that is most likely full of shit, or its ditch weed.

Marijuana brands: It’s easy to find mids and kind bud.

If you know people you can usually get hyrdro, sour deisel, headies, or haze
