Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2
Legislation: Possession of marijuana is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500 for the first offense and up to one year in jail and a fine up to $2,500 for subsequent offenses.
Cultivation of marijuana is punishable by 5 – 30 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. A conviction for manufacturing marijuana must include proof that the marijuana was being grown for a purpose other than the grower’s personal use.
Law enforcement: Cops will not hesitate to bust you if they are even the slightest bit suspicious. Once I was real lucky and the officer let me off, but expect the police to have no mercy. Don’t smoke in public, but don’t be afraid to take blunt cruises down side roads, as long as you are careful.
Where to buy marijuana: Buying marijuana on the street will be very difficult, but you will eventually find someone. I recommend hanging out in the Great Falls Arbys, or across the street outside Romanticas. Try asking some of the high school students, most of them smoke pot. In McLean, you should try at the Tyson’s Corner Mall, just try not to ask any gang members or else you are just asking to get ripped off (or worse).
Marijuana prices: Beasters : $15/gram
I don’t know anyone that can hook up “schwag”, unless I head into Sterling or Reston.
More information: Hash is very rare, most dealers don’t know the strain names. I have been smoking in Great Falls for four years now, haven’t had a problem finding bud yet. It will probably be difficult trying to score some if you don’t know anyone, but it’s out there.
