Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5-4
Legislation: Possession of less than one ounce of marijuana is a misdemeanor and can be punished by up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. However, upon a first drug conviction the offender may be placed on probation, and upon successful completion the proceedings against him may be discharged. Possession of one ounce or more is a felony and is punishable by 1 – 10 years in prison.
Law enforcement: Savannah police are very overworked and underpaid. If you have small amounts (under a couple of grams) you’ll probably get let off with little or no issues. Up to an ounce, you’ll be looking at a fine and maybe a night or two in jail. Just don’t toke up in the touristy squares or on River St., and you’ll be fine.
another reporter added: “Savannah Cops are over worked. Thats why you do not play in Savannah cause all they do is ride. It doesn’t matter if you have anything that will change the color of a test, you will take a ride (I have made two and both were just a routine traffic stop.) Savannah has two departments just for smoker called CNT and HEAT, they love to see anything that doesn’t look right, like your man get in your car and then get back out. Make a ride to do the deal. ”
and also: ” I know many people(including myself) who have been arrested in Savannah for marijuana. Even small amount will get you in a little trouble. If it’s your first offense, (less than a ounce and not in separate packaging) you will most likely just have to appear before a judge.Most common punishment is 6 months probation 18 hours community service. ”
Where to buy marijuana: Anywhere on the Southside. Stay away from the downtown square area since the clubs are in the area and you will see cops. Southside Savannah is a bad area but the safest to look for smoke. The easiest way to go is to look for someone standing on the street curb infront of a house with people on the porch. Highway 204 area contains numerous dealers as well as Meth dealers. 37 street exit of Highway 16 is also a good spot. Make sure you have your money counted out and do not flash because yes, rapper’s get shot in Savannah.
another reporter added: “Downtown is easy to get marijuana. Unlike what other reports say about going to the Southside….It’s a waste of time and for bad bud. Southside is also safe despite what reports say. I’ve lived here for 4 years and most of the crime and stupid crap is downtown.”
and also: “Marijuana is abundant in Savannah, however if you’re (especially white male 30-45) “not from the area” except to be asked if you’re a cop. Mainly black dealers will sell to whoever. Downtown area is a dangerous place at night, but good for bud during the day. South side is great for herb but the layout is hard to find a dealer. Best bet is walk around downtown during day and head to the coffee shops (The Gallery ,The Metro, or The Bean), stike up a conversation with someone who looks like they will smoke, usually they can point you in the right direction.”

Marijuana brands: I’ve seen Kind Bud, Northern Lights, Skunk, and I seen White Widow once. Savannah is called the c-port and it is easy to shift through the area. Believe it or not alot of the good smoke comes from the Arabic people so we see many different strands.
More information: Very little of the stuff is grown locally, most is brought in from Florida or Atlanta. In that respect, prices are a bit higher. But dealers tend to not bother moving low grade stuff down here, so it’s tough to get really bad weed.
To find bud you really need to know someone. Best way is find someone who looks like they sell, ask “you good for it” and down south it hits the scales before you eyes, so don’t be uncomfortable or ppl get nervous.
