Law Enforcement: Law enforcement around the Greater Jacksonville Metropolitan area is strict and downtown should be avoided if at all possible. Once you get out of the downtown area things are alot more relaxed. Jacksonville is so large and spread out its hard for the cops to keep an eye on everything, so just be careful and you should be fine. The north and west sides are rough and cops are more likely to be suspicious, so they too should be avoided if possible. The Jacksonville Beaches are loaded with cops but they don’t tend to bother you as long as you don’t make a scene or do anything to blatant or obvious. During festivals and the such they are much more vigilant, so keep that in mind.
Additional info provided by a long time look said “Law Enforcement in minimal, if quantities are in minimal amount and if possessor has less than an 1/4. Most likely you will be told to dump it or be ticketed rather than be arrested. However, the Northside, the far Westside and the Beaches are the strictest parts of town, with cops having very little tolerance for anything – but there always are exceptions. If your car is going to be searched and a small amount of pot is the Only thing they will find, they will let most people go. However, if you are pulled over and have other things to “hide”, they take a very strict “no tolerance” attitude, as well as if you are caught lying about anything. In this city it’s best to be honest with the police.
Where to buy marijuana in Jacksonville: The north and west sides are full of dealers, just cruise down any street and ask the first suspicious looking person you see. This area can be rough, especially around Edgewood avenue, so be alert. Make sure you do not give anyone money before you receive your goods.
The best bud in Jacksonville is in the Southside/Mandarin area, but you really have to know the people there to get it. If you are really hard pressed, try going to places frequented by college students such as a hookah lounge or club areas, and someone will definitely help you out.
The beaches has good stuff as well, and just about anyone that looks like a smoker will help you out. Just cruise down the boardwalk Friday or Saturday night and ask around, the people there are very laid back and friendly.
and also: if you visit a bar and make polite conversation with a regular, they can help you out. not a club, a neighborhood bar. offer to buy them a few drinks if they’ll help you out. i did it last night, worked out great, got a dime bag. good size too. ”
here is a locals advice: DO NOT EVER buy drugs from street dealers here. NEVER. There is a great risk of being scammed, beaten up, robbed or worse. The areas which have street dealers are the most violent areas of town, in a town that surpasses Miami in per capita homicide. And those areas are also heavily traveled by police. To purchase from locals, regular people, you MUST develop a quick friendship with them and gain their trust. Riverside (also called 5 points) would be an out-of-towner’s best bet over the beaches. Drinking is a great way to do that or being very good and finding like souls. Even though it’s very difficult, especially if traveling by airplane, I’d suggest having your own bowl or joint to offer to new friends first. If all else fails, hit a more artsy bar and avoid the college type bars or clubs. There are several around the Beaches and 5 points area and the people are very friendly and welcoming. If the crowd is dressed in polos, avoid it at all costs.
The best bud is located in the Riverside, 5 points area. The product is either high grade regs or creeper. Prices for regs, in town, are $25, $50 and $100. (1/4, 1/2 and full ounce.) At the beaches the prices are more – $30, $60 and $120 – because all of the suppliers are located in town and with higher gas prices comes inflation and the bud is never as good as it is in town.
Dealers rarely deliver here and Never meet strangers. If you are asked by a contact to give them your money and wait, you have to be willing to wait upwards of an hour, sometimes as much as 2-3 hours even if product is on hand.
To find homegrown hydro – specifically Mango, Haze and AK47, I suggest the Riverside area. Beaches prices for high-grade are unreasonably high. Ranging from $25-75 more than the town’s average for. Also, product is never as good as found in the center of the town. It is often drier and older as well as frequently being light.
