Law Enforcement: Cops usually don’t do a search unless they smell it. Besides that there isn’t much surveillance, except at the stroudsburg mall. Stay away from there.
another reporter added: “if you’re under 30 cops WILL search you”
and:”The cops in Cleveland are mostly cool for the non-dealing smoker. mostly will just take the bud and send you away. most cleveland cops smoke weed thats why they take it.”
and also: “Depending on your attitude you can get anything from
a citation to having the cops make you crush it. If you dont have
identification on you then you can go to jail even if you only have a dime
Where to buy marijuana in Cleveland: In e. cleveland, near hough and e. 105st. just be cool and ask anybody that’s standing around. if you’re looking for kind bud you’d have to have connects. Just Keep in mind that east Cleveland is quite dangerous, so you may want to consider another spot.
For a safer approach try cleveland hts, places like coventry ,and ceder lee around 3:00, and even lakewood on the west side.
another reporter added: “DO NOT GO TO THE EAST SIDE OF CLEVELAND, if your skin is lighter than a mexican you will be shot at, it is very dangerous and stupid to even drive through. Best place to go is Lakewood, they have a couple of good headshops there so if the person looks like they smoke pot i guarantee that they do.”
and also: “E. 55 st is a hot spot for good bud. people around this part of town are not white! knowing someone is key but most dealers are friendly and just looking to make money.”
and also: ” Almost anywhere on the east side but if you are white and on the east side you are putting yourself in a very dangerous situation. You are just as likely to be the victim of a robbery as you are to get some weed. The near west side is also dangerous but not as bad.
Better to go to Lakewood on the west side or Cleveland Heights on the east side.”
