Antigua – San Pedro, Guatemala

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

Legislation: MArijuana is illegal in Guatemala, and so is any related action

Law enforcement: I was discreet but smoked whilst walking around the town.

Where to buy marijuana: I was offered bud by the shoeshine boys in central plaza. If you don’t mind buying drugs from teenage kids it’s fairly certain you will get the same offer. The best stuff comes from around Lake Atitlan and San Pedro but naturally, it is more expensive.

Marijuana prices: In San Pedro the cost of an ounce of good skunk with crystals and a lovely herby smell is 300 Quetzals. Ask around for a certain lady who lives up the street, everyone knows her. In Antigua, from the shoeshine boys I only bought shwag which I hate.
