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.”

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.

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.

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:
Loud:
1 g – $20
1/8 oz. – $60
1/4. – $110, avg though I’ve heard anywhere from $100-120
Mids:
$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.

Law enforcement: you will get arrested if you give them any chance

Where to buy marijuana: once in a blue moon you can find someone, but i’d recommend going to a different town. especially stay away from a little part of town by the taco bell and the sunoco, on that side of lancaster ave. there’s grafiti on the bridge right after passing taco bell saying now entering lil chicago. on the way out it says now leaving lil chicago. stay away from this place. you will either get ripped off or robbed. there is a culture in this part of town for rap music and robbing anything involving weed, despite being surrounded by ravenous police and rich wasps. don’t worry tho, they’ll only pretend to have guns. but they might actually have a big black dude. if you see a big black dude with a ghetto white dude peel out.im not racist, but the only time i see big black dudes in lil chicago, they’re with ghetto white guys that are robbing people.

Marijuana prices: well, if you’re buying mids here you’ve come to the wrong place. you’re gonna get ripped off. this is not where the urban man roams with large quantities of cheap buds. i know someone you can get eighths of beast for 40, but you’re probably gonna get g’s for 20 and eighths for 50. if theres headies it’s quite expensive, but most of the time it’s not headies when they say it is.

Marijuana brands: mids, but mostly beast

More information: unless you already know someone you can get bud off of in this town, if you’re looking to go cop some bud, stay away from this town. at all costs. this town is nothing but bad news. in an upper class way. these cops are out for blood, hahha.

Wilmington, NC, North Carolina

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.5

Legislation: Possession of one half ounce or less is punishable by up to 30 days in jail, most likely suspended. Possession of greater than one half ounce is punishable by 1 – 120 days in jail, with a possibility of community service or probation in lieu of jail. Possession greater than 1.5 ounces increases the penalties to 8 – 13 months in jail.

The state allows conditional release or alternative or diversion sentencing for people facing their first prosecutions. Usually, conditional release lets a person opt for probation rather than trial. After successfully completing probation, the individual’s criminal record does not reflect the charge.

Law enforcement: Cops in Wilmington are pretty much assholes. Kind of unfortunate.

Where to buy marijuana: UNCW! There’s stoners like mad that go to UNCW. Also, try hitting up Mayfaire Cinema and shopping thing, ive been asked if i want any plenty of times.

Marijuana prices: Chronic: 1/8 $50

Mids: 108 $30

Schwag: Don’t mess with it.

Law Enforcement: Cops in the city aren’t really messing the herb that much, the city is over-run with criminals, crack and herion addicts. Being the Baltimore, MD is only about an hour south.

another reporter added: “Stay out of the city, and you’ll be fine.

Cops on patrol are sparse, so blunt rides are OK.”

Where to buy marijuana in York, PA: Honestly, I really wouldn’t recomend buying herb on the street, ESPECIALLY in the city and/or at night. Crime is quite high and there’s a growing number or homeless, and not the friendly street kids flipping bags. The only public places would be the York College (during the day), and be careful of campus cops. And that’s sketchy unless you know someone.

another reporter added: “Cruise around York College or Penn State York and ask the people who look like smokers, they’ll hook you up usually, even if they are the middle man. Don’t be a bitch, or you’ll get ripped off.”

Marijuana Prices in York, PA: Problably will not be able to score anything headie 🙁 Beasters are all over the place ($45/50-$90/100) Shchwag and middies, more in the city (Dimes $10, Eights $20-$25)

and also: “$20-30 an eighth for mids

$45 an eighth for beasters

Good headies can be found around YCP (NY connects), but expect to pay $20/g”

another reporter added: “Prices vary, however bud is always available. Schwagg and mids are available and run from 10$ to 30$ for an eigth. Beaster and nug can be bought for 30$ to 50$ aand Headies can are sold ffor 35$ to 90$”

Strains:

Normally nothing special, the only names I’ve ever seen come through were White Rhino, Ak-47, and Bubble Gum.

another reporter added: “Many strains are available blueberry, orange crush, purple haze, black haze sour diesel, NYC Diesel,s sour sagun, Skunk, champagne, smile, and many others.”

More Information: A 30 minute drive East to the city of Lancaster is a much better place to go for your herb hunt. Check out the Chameleon club or the Blue Star when there’s a show going on. And there’s several campuses

Wayzata, MN, Minnesota

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

Law enforcement: Cops are looking for harder drugs and their dealers. there is a lot of meth around here but if you just smoke they wont ever meet you

Where to buy marijuana: Anywhere around 24 and 55 station. There is a lot of good bud on campus and the school is huge so youll be fine about blending in. or check the pizza place maggies or the chinese restaurant there are a lot of stoners over in that area

Marijuana prices: standard 30-60 but it gets you blazed there is no schwag here you have to go to the city for that but you will find dank dro and some hash when it comes around.

Marijuana brands: ak, chronic, northern lights most dealers just carry one type of weed

More information: wayzata is a really fun town to smoke in so just chill and hang by the lake if you smoke a joint in public have your friend light a cigarette and just switch when you need to because people in minnesota know what dro smells like and they might give you some shit.

Winona, MN, Minnesota

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

Legislation: The penalty for possession of a small amount (less than 42.5 grams) of marijuana is a fine of up to $200 and possible requirement of drug education. Possession of 42.5 grams or more of marijuana is punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Possession of 10 kilograms or more of marijuana increases the penalty to a fine up to $250,000 and up to 20 years in prison. Possession of 50 kilograms or more is punishable by up to 25 years in prison and a fine up to $500,000. For any possession of 100 kilograms or more, the penalty is up to 30 years in prison and a fine up to $1,000,000.

Possession of greater than 1.4 grams in a motor vehicle (except in the trunk) is punishable by up to one year in prison.

Driver’s licenses can be suspended for 30 days if the offense was committed while driving a motor vehicle.

Conditional discharge is a possibility for first time offenders.

Law enforcement: Cops are pretty lame in Winona, they don’t have much to do besides bust people for petty crimes. In most cases if you get caught you’re looking at court, fines, probation, etc. Just avoid cops, especially at night. They’re always in their squad cars, never on foot, and if you look suspicious (or have any reason for them to pull you) they will pull you over. Since it’s a small town, a little courtesy with the 5-0 goes a long way. If they ask you what you’re doing, mention something wholesome like bowling (seriously, their opinion of you will change immediately).

another reporter added: “Cops in the city of Winona will bust you in most cases if they catch you smoking, or pull you over and find weed/paraphernalia in your car, and this can result in court, probation, etc. So be careful, but it is possible to find good spots in town. Just don’t drive and smoke in town. ”

Where to buy marijuana: Just like in any small town, connections are essential. You won’t really find any dealers on the street anywhere, it’s best to know someone. The porn store on 3rd St in downtown Winona sells bowls and bongs and such, so go in and look for stoner types examining the merchandise–wait until outside the store to ask discretely though, and don’t be sketchy about it. Let them know you’re cool and smoke them up if they can hook you up. If you see any stoners around the Winona State campus, ask them discretely too. Don’t bother looking for bud at the St Mary’s campus though. Also, the disc golf courses by the lakes are good places to find stoners, again be discreet as the parks are extremely public areas. Basically any stoner types or punks (they’re cool with you as long as you’re cool with them) will at least give you a friendly pointer in the right direction.

another reporter added: “It’s all about connections. If you come across a hippie-looking person or an obvious stoner, ask discretely. Also, the local porn store sells pipes and stuff, so go in there–don’t mention weed to the employees, but if you see anyone looking at the pipes ask them outside or something.”

Marijuana prices: Usually $50-60 an eighth for good dank or beasters, $300-375 an oz. Of course, these prices depend on availability and your hookup. It’s usually dryer in the summer when the college kids are gone. Don’t expect to be able to get a hold of any amounts larger than an eighth if you don’t know anyone though, and it can take a while even if you do. Many dealers also sell by the dime (1.7g, $25-30).

Mids are usually $25 an eighth, but not very common.

another reporter added: “Usually $25-30 a dime, $50-60 and eighth depending on quality, $150-175 1/2 oz, $300-350 an oz. Usually good dank, nothing special like you can get in bigger cities but generally pretty good quality. Shwag is harder to find, but find any ghetto-looking people–warning, they will probably rip you off. ”

Marijuana brands: Most of the Winona bud is pretty good quality, but not many name brands. Beasters are common, but don’t pay 60 an eighth for them. I’ve come across blueberry, grapes, and sour diesel, but high quality strains are tough to find. Shitty brick weed is available but isn’t worth the effort or risk of losing your money.

More information: I don’t recommend smoking in the open in Winona unless you are familiar with the town and know some good spots. Don’t drive around town and smoke either. On the other hand, the county road system is great, almost no sheriffs (or anyone else except other people on roadies), beautiful scenery, and miles upon miles of empty road to explore. Or, there are beautiful river bluffs right in town with great trails, so if it isn’t winter go for a nature hike with your favorite plant. Very few people use the extensive trail system, which runs along all of the bluffs. If you don’t want to go hiking, just go up into the trees to smoke.

There are beautiful river bluffs right in town with tons of great trails, so take a little hike, or even just go up into the trees. Also, in my experience the Winona County road system is great. I’ve only seen about 3 sheriff’s cars in about 3 years of roadie-ing on the back roads, which extend all across the area. Great scenery, most of the roads are gravel but basically empty, really fun to explore while smoking.

 

Yorktown Heights, NY, New York

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

Legislation: Getting caught with anything less than 25 grams in NY state is a violation (was a misdemeanor not too long ago), which is of the same caliber as a minor parking violation. You’ll have to go to court and will have to pay a fine of about 100-150 dollars depending on the judge, but it’s not so bad. Just don’t get caught.

Law enforcement: Like all cities, there are obviously cops. If you’re not an idiot and don’t smoke or make any sketchy drug deals out in the open, you’ll be fine.

Where to buy marijuana: It’s extremely easy to obtain dank bud in Yorktown Heights. Far easier if you know people, but if not, don’t fret. You can still find that ganja by going to Railroad Park. It’s located right near the Shell station (Where the emplyees will sell you dutches, rolling papers, and other tobacco products) and the basketball courts. You can always count on finding a number of somewhat sketchy looking kids sitting at the benches in the park who will by all means know where to find that kind herb. Don’t be shy, most of them are nice enough to help you out, but don’t be a fool. If you are, you will get robbed.

Marijuana prices: Dending on who you purchase your satchel from, 20$ will get you anywhere from .8 to 1.5, the latter usually being some pretty decent dro.

10$ will get you anywhere from .5 to .8, also depending on who you cop from.

Eigths generally go for around 35-40$ and can sometimes be easier to find than say a dime or a dub (20$) sack.

Quarters range from 75-100$

Half O’s are usually around 135-160$

Prices of O’s are questionable.

Marijuana brands: You won’t find anything less than good dro in Yorktown Heights. There’s usually always good haze around and occasionally some more known commercial strains will come around such as Sour D, Trainwreck, and White Rhino.
