Law enforcement: You’ll notice a lot of police cars driving around, but they’ll only stop you if they think you’ve been drunk driving, so be careful. They’ve also been known to search cars, especially in front of the pool halls. Everyone drives here, so don’t walk down the street with a j.

Where to buy marijuana: Don’t ask the waspy white kids from Amarillo High because most of them will only give you shake and they only sell in dimes and dubs.

Other than that, feel free to ask around. If you’re staying for a while, get a job in the food chain industry and start chilling at the pool halls.
