Playa Del Carmen, Mexico
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5
Legislation: The “Codigo Penal” law at “Articulo 195Bis” specify a max. of 250Grams to be considered personal consuming and not to be procecuted. And 5Grams of Hash. But many local laws are in conflict with this federal law. So many states and cities are more “illegal” than others.
Law enforcement: Police are all corrupt and will look for big money off you if caught. The average cop in Cancun retires at 45!
Where to buy marijuana: In playa del carmen (just Playa to everyone) all you have to do is walk down fifth avenue one street up from the beach, it will come to you in seconds,. just keep your wits about you in this small pedestrian street score in a shop not on the street to avoid the shcmeez obviuously. I got about half an ounce of earthy smelling brick that was quite damp – it was incredibly strong, i paid $90 us for it and bought a pipe for $25 off the woman in the shop as a thankyou. they guys on the street constantly whisper ‘coke, smoke amigo?’ i didnt bother but you can get either off the shop guys.
another reporter added: “I followed the guide’s advice and it worked very well. Marijuana is also known as “boat-a” Walk into any small store off the main stretch where they sell pipes and trinkets. Ask for Bob Marley, smoke etc You might have to follow someone to another stall – fake a cigar purchase and score your green. Paid 70$ for one Cuban cigar and a solid bag of sticky green. Remarkably had no smell and was pretty awesome quality. Smoked in the hotel and on the beach bars at night without any hassle.”
Marijuana prices: $40 an eighth, less than half that if you know someone
Marijuana brands: wild grown in the jungle probably
