Durham, NC, North Carolina

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.75

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: The cops around here do not cause much trouble unless you are walking around the mall smoking a spliff. If you have a good spot, such as a house apartment, or a less traveled area, to blaze at you won’t have any problems.

Where to buy marijuana in Durham: Ask around the UNC or Dook campuse and you’ll get some herb. Also head to a bar type place and there is bound to be some bud there.

Marijuana prices: $20 for an 1/8 of mids, $40 for an 1/8 of beasters, and $60 for an 1/8 of headies. Prices generally go down if you buy in bulk.

Brands: Plenty of mids, beaster, and headies. Also many cross-breeds and lately we’ve had yumboldt, white widow, and some hawaiian 5-0. (plenty of that one hit shit.)
