Gili Trawangan, Indonesia
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4.6
Legislation: Dope smoking is illegal in Indonesia. If you get caught expect to part with cash to bribe the police
Law enforcement: The Gili’s advertises themselves as free from ‘motors, police and dogs’. There is no permanent police presence on the islands, though they occasionally visit. However, everyone knows when they are coming.
Where to buy marijuana: Everywhere. Just look for any guy wearing dreadlocks (and that’s a lot) and they will set you up. It is common to score weed before you find accomodation.
Turn left when you get off the ferry and look for a Rastaman or cafe playing Bob Marley and ask for weed.
Marijuana prices: IDR 600,000 ($USD 80) will get you an ounce. Though it will need to be manicured.
Marijuana brands: Just leaf and tip. Most comes from Sumatra and is pretty rough to smoke. The locals can roll the most amazing joints and it is customary to share with the guys who supplied the weed
