Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 4
Law enforcement: Cops tend to look the other way and can be easily bribed. If you are caught, most of the time they will simply take your stash.
However You can get busted by using it, but usually they take the dope and leave you alone… if your under 18 you will be taken to the police office and you will need a parent or supervisor to pick you up.
Where to buy marijuana: You can find people selling in all the big clubs. If you walk around Punda and fit the profile (young male tourist) you will tend to have a few people offering it. Often times these dealers are selling crappy Columbian, but it’s better than nothing.
Our intrepid local reported filled us in with some great info:
There are alot of places where you can buy marijuana… Here are some Popular places:
#1 – Penstraat-Drivethru – This is the most popular place in Curacao, the weed ain’t great quality but you will get pretty stoned… they sell Jamaican weed here… they also sell other stuff, but i do not recommend that. You will drive through a small street in punda, if your a tourist it will look pretty scary, but there is nothing wrong with the place as long as you act normal… stop in the street and 1 of the people will come to your window and ask what you want ask for “Chaiba” (local word for weed) and tell them for how much you want… they sell 1 pack for 5 guilders.
#2 Pinkhouse – This one is located near Jan Sofat and the richer part of town, they have different stuff, hasj, Jamaica weed, skunk, overall quality is ‘ok’… same as above, you tell them how much you want and they will bring you the stuff.
#3 – Marchena Hardware – This is pretty close to the airport, and if you are near it… get it there, the overall quality is pretty good, good green skunk also sold in packs of 5 guilders… usually around 0,5 gram a pack. Its very deep into the ghetto and sold by Jamaican rasta’s… if your alone, do not go there.
#4 – The Clubs – They do sell it in clubs, just look for a black skinny guy that just looks awesome to be in a club… he will probably have weed and other merchandise on him… quality of this varies, but usually it is bad…
#5 – Local – The best way, for the best price and quality is to know somebody local which you will have a phone# of… they usually deliver (not for 1 gr. of course) and will get you the best weed, the best way. If you want that well… know a experienced stoner on Curacao, like me.
Marijuana prices: $60 for about 25g
Marijuana brands: Skunk and Purple haze is pretty common. Often times you’ll be sold Dutch varieties but is actually grown locally. This is not a bad thing as the local soil and climate produces some very potent weed with an amazing flavor.
