Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4
Legislation: Possession of 28.5 grams or less of marijuana is not an arrestable offense. As long as the offender can provide sufficient identification and promises to appear in court, the officer will not arrest the offender. Upon conviction of the misdemeanor charge the offender is subject to a fine of $100. Possession of greater than 28.5 grams is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500.
Law enforcement: Cops won’t stop you as long as you aren’t obvious about it. I know a few people who’ve taken discreet hits on the city bus. Just be cool and calm and they won’t care.
Where to buy marijuana: The best option is to get a friend. People mostly do jobs where they pick you up somewhere. The only other place is at the skate park. It’s filled with youngsters and most them will know where to get weed. There are never cops there so being discreet is easy.
Marijuana prices: $50 – 1/8 ounce
$95 – 1/4 ounce
$150 – 1/2 ounce
Bring a scale with you if possible. Most people will try and rip you off until you build up a relationship. This usually involves getting 4/5ths of what you pay for.
Marijuana brands: I don’t know any brand names, we only get quality in the city, but check what you are buying, you’ll never get any brown or leaves but some of the buds are little weak.
More information: Look for skaters in the summer, and teen skiers and boarders in the winter. Most will know where to get some.
