Shenzhen, Guangdong, China

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2.5-3

Legislation: I’m sure smokin weed in China is illegal.

Law enforcement: Smoked in a bar when the police came looking for someone (Chinese). No reaction to the weed smoke.

Where to buy marijuana: Luo hu and also…Shekou. The expat area is rife with all the kinds of bar scenes and western fare. The bars are mixed with foreign workers and people not originally from Shenzhen. Typically finding weed is done through connections in bars at least from what I’ve seen. Hash is around in most social places, from the people working at the bar. Usually the boss or someone close to the boss, say a regular friend. Some foreigners smoke and will let you in the circle if you can provide something. Good buds can be had, but it’s quite expensive. They might be Canadian or American.

Marijuana prices: 6g hash 400RMB

1g sometimes 100RMB

Marijuana brands:

More information: Walk around the Shekou seaworld area near and far from the boat. Lots of bars off a few blocks from the main area. Be social.
