Law enforcement: Huge amounts of cops looking for any reason to pull a group of teenagers over. Normally pretty tolerant of weed as long as your not trying to distribute. If you are caught with buds they will probably just make you throw it out. They will confiscate any smoking devices and either break them in front of you or keep them so that they can get high later. The trick to not getting caught is to be honest with the cops if they are about to bust you. Give the pigs your bud and bowl and they will let you walk.

and also: “Ridiculous amount of cops in such a small town, seems like they are out to get the teenagers. Don’t speed. Wardwell will be tolerant and dealing although he has been known to step in, on occasion, during large deals or deals which could get him in trouble for negligence in the line of duty.”

Where to buy marijuana: Best places too look are the Stop and Shop parking lot. Or in front of the town library anytime during the week. Some cigarette smoking high schooler can definitely get you some herbs. If you want try driving around town until you see a drunk guy riding a pedal bike with a long beard, he can get you whatever you want.

Marijuana Prices: Normally only good things like kb and dro around the area, about 40 an 8th. Every now and then exotics come from California where you can score a gram for 20. Mids can be avoided at all cost.
