Law enforcement: Cops here are definately not slow or dumb. Norristown cops are probably some of the best cops in the area. The problem in Norristown is violent crime and hard drugs like crack and heroin. Norristown police, with very few exceptions, could care less about small amounts pot. They really don’t have the time or the resources to dela with busting low level pot dealers and consumers. Be respectful and use your coconut. If you get stopped, be honest and they will probably just take your weed, or they might just let you go.
Where to buy marijuana in Norristown:
Main Street is usually hoping with people during the warmer weather. Ask anyone standing outside the various bars in the area if they can help you. Green Street and other small side streets between Main Street and Fornance Street can often lead to good scores, just look for the people hanging around on the corners or sitting on their stoops. Another area which bears special mention is W. Marshall Street from Markely Street to Noble Street. During the warmer weather, W Marshall Street is loaded with people and drugs. The only problem is, W. Marshall Street is also a violent area, and can be dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing. Due to the violence in this area, cameras have been installed in the W. Marshall area, so doing business outside is generally a bad idea.

Sad to say, but if you are white and don’t have a hook-up in Norristown, you should probably go elsewhere to buy your weed.
