Law enforcement: police will suspect almost anything, TONS of busts in last few years of locals minding their own business smoking. I have only come into contact with one police officer who didn’t mind and know of no others.
If you are caught in the act, consider yourself screwed. If you get pulled over and your auto faintly smells like weed, they will probably search you. As far as paraphanalia goes, they’ll only get you if they find it ;). The police situate themselves on rt. 4/ rt. 6/ rt. 10/ “flats”, Police HQ is on River Road. Just be smart, use common sense, don’t smoke out in the open. Although police enforce drug laws, they are barely perceptive to scope anything out. If you appear sober, they will let you go. I’ve been pulled over while blazed out of my skull and gotten away scot free before. Eyedrops, chewing gum and a single spray of cologne/perfume are always good ideas.
Where to buy marijuana: “ok, this is mostly a “suburb” type town so there are very few places to find it. You can try local restaurants and stores where locals work, almost no one cares at all as long as you’re polite. don’t go near mcdonalds in the center of unionville, there are lots of scummys and heroin addicts even though it doesn’t seem like it. ”
and also: “Center of Unionville/Mcdonalds area is your best bet if you’re not from around here. If you are an adult, play it very very cool, a dealer will split if they even slightly suspect that you are FPD. If you’re a stranger, you would have to catch one of the dumber small-time dealers to get some. They are around, but only a few.”

High Grade: 20-25/gram
Marijuana brands: Hash almost never comes by
More information: don’t buy from any white, scummy, “ghetto” kids. this is asking to get ripped off.
The legitimate high grade brands tend to get hogged up by the local dealers and friends. Most everything comes from Hartford by way of surrounding major cities. Be very weary of Farmington Police, they have a handful of young undercovers on the lookout, and the dealers are aware of this. This is a city of connections, if you have them, consider yourself fortunate. If you happen to make connections, make sure that they’re small and secure. Treat dealers with respect, and you will be rewarded with quality grass.
