Where to buy marijuana in South Bend: Local coffee shops in the downtown area, disc golf courses (several in town), college bars, occasionally a Notre Dame tailgating party. Just look for the hippie college types or the middle-class cool kids (you know the type they usually talk about anti-republican politics and life). Most are nice if you offer to smoke. Generally stay away from the hip-hop type, use your judgement.

Ohh and then there’s the mexican grocery stores that sell tacos inside, they can generally pick you out if you sit there for a while. A little spanish helps too.

South Bend marijuana prices: Mexi shwag usually $15-30 a 1/4 oz (I have found pretty good skunky almost mids for around $25), $50-120 1 oz, $180-$300 1/4 lb

Middies around $35-50 1/4 oz, $120-200 1 oz

Nugs, Dank, Dro, Chronic, Diggity, Hydro, $40-60 1/8, $80-120 1/4, $280-425 1 oz

Brands: Generally the $80 a 1/4 stuff is low grade dank from Canada, still good, just not so many crystals, but a good pine taste. Some people will get you to pay as much as $120 for a 1/4 of this, haggle or ask around. Only do that if no other option is there.

I have seen everything from Blueberry to White Widow. It all depends on what’s in town, some people have a variety on hand, others just plain BC’s. But beware people tend to call allot of things Blueberry or Other names and it’s not really that. Just regular Dank.

More information: Be careful where you go, the Southeast side can be rough in some spots. Don’t bother with the Westside either (Unless your going to mexican town which is generally safe if you know the people a bit). The East side can be bad, but Notre Dame is on the east side and alot of students live there. Just use your judgement. If you see gangbangers on the street, don’t go there.
