Law enforcement: Cops in Texarkana are generally more concerned with Harder drugs (There is a TON of Meth/Crack/Cocaine/Ecstasy in Texarkana), if you are a dealer or caught with a TON of weed (probably around an ounce+) then you might get a ticket. But 2/3rds of the force are crooked so if you get caught with an ounce or less or so more than likely they will take your weed for themselves and not write you a ticket, and trust me they ARE taking it for themselves.
Where to buy marijuana: There are TONS of places to buy Marijuana in Texarkana, the only problem is that most of the time it’s all Mexican Schwag.
Also more than likely anyone you can find that will get you bud is going to be 20 or less unless you hit the few bars (there are only 2, a country one and a RnB one.) Dont worry the kids usually know the same people the older people do.
One good place to almost always try is the mall, specifically in front of the arcade/the food court area. Any “mall-rats” will either smoke pot or know someone that smokes pot. Goths/Stoners/Metalheads/Punks almost always smoke pot and will almost always even have some on them (Good for buying a joint, maybe a blunt). There are also a good bit of “Wiggers” that know where to score bud. If you are at the mall all you have to do is chat up some people long enough so they know you are cool and ask, hell you can even just walk by them and smell the marijuana reek and ask where to score some.
Other places in town are: Darkslide (Local skateboard park/shop/plays local bands on weekends.) Also if you can be cool and walk up chill so they know you aren’t a cop there is a playground called Kidtopia right behind and to the left (or right depending on how you look at it) of Darkslide, its the only playground around and you cant miss it, this place is called kidtopia and during shows on the weekend there is almost ALWAYS ppl smoking joints under some of the equipment, throw some money at them (2-3 dollars) and they will let you smoke a joint or two with em.
The only other places are the kind of places where you would have to know someone (rural areas/neighborhoods)
If you are up to risking it you can just randomly drive into almost any apartment complex if you see someone standing around ask them where you can get some bud, some times it works sometimes it doesn’t.
Marijuana prices: 1-3 dollars for a Joint, 5 bucks for a Blunt. 10 bucks for 5 grams, 20 bucks for 10 grams. OZ for 50-60. If you DO know someone, who has good hookups though you can get pot way cheaper, 30-40 for an OZ.
Marijuana brands: Schwag unless you know someone who has recently made an out of town trip and bought good bud and brought it back or someone who is growing a strain. Any homegrown is either going to be total shitty schwag or REALLY high end shit. There IS Hydroponic Bud in Texarkana but you have to almost always personally know someone who is growing it or have a friend who knows them.
