Where to buy marijuana in Punta Cana: Hotel beaches, Hotel smoke shops

Punta Cana marijuana prices: RD$1500-2000 per oz (US$50-65)

More information: I have lived in the Dom Rep for 25 years and while Punta Cana may be a tiny bit different for the quantity of tourists let me just suggest you be a LOT more careful than the above report suggests. While corruption is huge and you can likely buy your way out of trouble, it will cost a lot and will be a HUGE pain. Also, I have never seen *any* weed in 25 years here remotely comparing to a Northern Lights. — if they’re really selling it please provide more info 😉
