Where to buy marijuana in Istanbul:
You can find lots of smokers around Caddebostan park in summer. If you ask them they will give you some or tell you how you can find. Also in Tarlabasi (near Taksim) it is easy to find smoker-seller. But in Tarlabasi, be careful not to be cheated.
From zeytinburnu and hacihusrev. it is better to find a smoking friend first in order to help you. This way, you wouldn’t be cheated neither with quality, nor price..
another reporter added: “In Taksim and Beyoglu area, ask around in bars but do not fool around too much in the backstreets.
Tarlabasi area is a place to get weed but going there is discouraged, it is not the safest place for a foreigner.”
