Olympia, Washington

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4

Legislation: A majority of Washington citizens voted in favor of medical marijuana in November 1998. “Fifty-nine percent of voters approved Measure 692 on November 3, 1998. The law took effect on that day. It removes state-level criminal penalties on the use, possession and cultivation of marijuana by patients who possess “valid documentation” from their physician affirming that he or she suffers from a debilitating condition and that the “potential benefits of the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks.” Patients diagnosed with the following illnesses are afforded legal protection under this act: cachexia; cancer; HIV or AIDS; epilepsy; glaucoma; intractable pain (defined as pain unrelieved by standard treatment or medications); and multiple sclerosis. Other conditions are subject to approval by the Washington Board of Health. Patients (or their primary caregivers) may legally possess or cultivate no more than a 60-day supply of marijuan

a. The law does not establish a state-run patient registry.


Senate Bill 6032, which takes effect on July 22, 2007, mandates the Department of Health to “adopt rules defining the quantity of marijuana that could reasonably be presumed to be a sixty-day supply for qualifying patients.” The Department is instructed to report its findings to the legislature by July 1, 2008.

Patients who possess larger quantities of cannabis than those approved by the Department will continue to receive legal protection under the law if they present evidence indicating that they require such amounts to adequately treat their qualifying medical condition.

Law enforcement: The majority of cops in Olympia won’t screw you over for a small amount of bud and really only focus on people who smoke marijuana in public. As long as you don’t act like an idiot you should be fine.

Where to buy marijuana: Usually someone at the Evergreen State College is holding. Go into the woods and you will always find people blazing. Look around downtown for people who look like they blaze. Also, hit up any of the smoke shops in downtown Olympia, west, or east sides. The skate park on the west side and the nearby mall is also a good place to scope out people who might blaze. Avoid nearby Lacey because there’s a lot of meth in that area and people can be kind of sketchy.

Marijuana prices: $20 – 1.5 – 2.0

$40 – 3.5 – 3.7

An OZ will run you anywhere between $200 and $300 depending on the quality and hookup.

Marijuana brands: Willy’s Wonder, Orange Kush, Trainwreck, Deep Purple, Northern Lights (rare, but incredible), occasionally White Widow, really good hash too if you want to look for it.
