Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4
Legislation: Cannabis is a Class C drug in Britain. It has the lowest penalties: a maximum of two years and/or unlimited fine for possession; five years and/or unlimited fine for trafficking. It includes tranquillisers, some less potent stimulants, and mild opioid analgesics (eg buprenorphine which is used in the treatment of opioid dependency). It also includes liquid cannabis, cannabinol and cannabinol derivatives (THC) (as of Jan 29, 2004).
Recently marijuana has been upgraded to a Class B drug, which carries stiffer penalties and harsher treatment for those convicted, so be careful!
Law enforcement: Not many cops around Lincoln. Those that are out are PSCO’s or armed. Therefore they can do nothing or are interested in other matters. Just don’t be a idiot.
Where to buy marijuana: Look around the university campus or student accommodation. There are some big growers. On weekends there are usually all ot of people near the corn market/riverside centre.
Marijuana prices: £20 for 1/8. Scales up reasonably.
