Law enforcement: Dubuque cops don’t go out of their way to bust somebody smoking pot. If you’re smart about what you’re doing, they will leave you be. BUT, if you give them reason to stop you and then they find weed on you… they probably won’t let you go. It does happen on occasion, though.
Locals say: The cops here suck and yes they will go out of their way to bust you. I have encountered them more than my fair share of times and if they suspect something they will search you. Your best option is to not panic if you are stopped because they are trained to look for nervousness. Don’t fidget. Treat them with respect and usually they aren’t too bad. Some are dicks and some are nice. Dubuque police have nothing better to do than sit there and search your car for an hour….even if they don’t find anything. Best advice is don’t smoke and drive in Dubuque unless you are out on the country roads. If you smoke in Dubuque try to avoid downtown at all costs.
Where to buy marijuana: I think it would be pretty hard to find weed if you weren’t from Dubuque. Your best bet would probably be asking black people who look like they smoke weed downtown..
Marijuana prices: Bricked mexican stuff is anywhere from 15 – 30 dollars for a quarter. An ounce can be from 70 – 100.
