San Diego, CA, California
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.2 inland, 3.8 at beaches
Legislation: San Diego is a conservative stronghold, so naturally many voting citizens have an anti-drug outlook, keep this in mind when dealing with inland cops. Medical marijuana is not legal, nor is possession of any kind.
Law enforcement: In the beach areas of san diego, ocean, mission, and pacific beach, cops are generally more tolerant, and tend to hand out sitations instead of arrests. However if you’re being extremley obvious and smoking in very busy public areas, you’re asking to get pinched. As you move inland more, La Mesa, El Cajon, San Carlos, cops become colser to san diego’s natural conservative values, and are more willing to arrest and pursue.
a local reporter added: “Southside chula vista police are bad when it comes to weed and will bust you at any given moment. they’re real ***** in southside. Southeast police are generally more leniant about marijuana and are usually looking for weapons instead of herb.
Where to buy marijuana in San Diego: The pier at ocean beach, or any beach area in general. Check for people with dirty hair and tie-die shirts (not joking). If you are more in inland, try and find a local dealer who you can trust.
Do not buy from homeless people, it is bad quality and just a bad idea in general.
Our local reporter added: “all over the place, look for stonery lookin white boys, rastas, mexicans will almost always have buds (not very good, but still buds). If you’re up in clairemont weed finding is going to be SO EASY. EVERYONE IN CLAIREMONT is a stoner. they got super good dank too. look for white surfers or skaters and theyll hook ya up nicely. DONT ASK FOR MARIJUANA! ALWAYS USE SLANG!! example: “ay man do u kno where tha “trees,ganj, doja, cronz, dank, herbals, etc” are at?” ”
and also: “you’d think that this is not a good place to buy cause its a richer area but university city is a good place. look for kids from 12 to 25 an most any thing above that. (yes 12) just walking around”
and also: “Definatley at the pier. I followed the recommended instructions and found exactly what I was looking for. Just keep it cool and respect them and it wont take you 20 minutes to find what you need.”

General Calfornia Information:
Legislation: In California since 1996’s Prop 215 anyone “recommended” (not prescribed—doctors nationwide can’t prescribe cannabis but they can under freedom of speech laws recommend it informally for your condition/illness) marijuana has been able to use it in their home legally now in quantities “Under the [statewide] guidelines, qualified patients and/or their primary caregivers may possess no more than eight ounces of dried marijuana and/or six mature (or 12 immature) marijuana plants. However, S.B. 420 allows patients to possess larger amounts of marijuana when such quantities are recommended by a physician. The legislation also allows counties and municipalities to approve and/or maintain local ordinances permitting patients to possess larger quantities of medicinal pot than allowed under the new state guidelines. [For detailed information on county or municipal medical marijuana guidelines [whether your area allows greater than 8 ounces to be possessed, etc.], please visit: http://www.safeaccessnow.net/countyguidelines.htm Oakland, for example, allows more than most counties]”
Thus if you are recommended cannabis you can visit the cannabis dispensaries (pharmacies supplying only medical marijuana to patients displaying proof of recommendation and residence in California) but some counties have banned the dispensaries in their area. Nonetheless there are many dispensaries in LA (over 100) and some in Northern California especially towards the coast. Or you can grow the applicable amount you want legally. If a police officer discovers you are in possession of cannabis showing them an ID card from your county will make them leave you alone faster (optional, costs over $100 a year). Under state law your marijuana use will be 100% legal in your home. Federal laws against medical marijuana don’t change the way California (or any other) state police officers and courts treat medical marijuana—only state laws do. California state law protects all doctor-recommended medical marijuana users as long as they don’t go over the quantity limits and don’t sell their cannabis to anyone. Thus medical marijuana is quite legal in California and many have gotten legal protection for their medical use for a wide variety of conditions not yet allowed in the other 11 medical marijuana states: e.g., Migraine, Arthritis, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), PMS, Severe Anxiety and many other conditions where marijuana is useful and effective.

Law enforcement: Medical marijuana users with doctor recommendations are fully legally protected in California for amounts up to at least 8 ounces and/or 6 mature (or 12 immature) plants in their home (certain counties listed here http://www.safeaccessnow.net/countyguidelines.htm allow more and certain conditions allow larger quantities sometimes). State police officers must not arrest you if you can show an identification card ($100 or so per year) or show your doctor-written proof of recommendation paper. As long as you keep within the legal quantity. 99% of marijuana arrests in the USA are done by state police officers according to MPP.org so as long as your medical marijuana use is legal in California you will not to have any problems as long as you follow state rules.
Where to buy marijuana: Medical users can buy at a dispensary (over 150 in the state, mostly in LA and the SF Bay area on the coast) with full legal protection to the quantities they are allowed. Also if an authorized medical user buys off the street they cannot be arrested for doing so as long as they can display a medical marijuana identification card ($100 or so a year) or show their written doctor’s proof of recommendation. Or they could grow their own to the amounts allowed.
More information: California is a pioneering medical marijuana state; the first “effective” American medical marijuana state since 1996 and the one that allows use for the most conditions (marijuana has shown anecdotal and scientifically proven results for many conditions, more than the 4 or 5 conditions (cancer/nasuea/chemotherapy side effects, HIV/AIDS, chronic pain, glaucoma, or MS or anorexia that the other 11 states have legalized use when recommended (though Maryland has the least protection according to MPP.org)) Plus California has decriminalized other marijuana use to a $100 fine for under an ounce possession and fines for paraphrenalia; no jail time and some cities have set marijuana use in general as the lowest law enforcement priority thus ignoring small time possession much more often.
