Carthage, NY, New York
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3-4
Legislation: Marijuana is illegal in New York state, and so is any activity related to marijuana (possession, cultivation, and of course dealing).
For small amounts (less than 25 grams) first time offenders, there is no Incarceration, and a fee of $100.
Punishment for possessing a small but commercial quantity is 1-3 years (not less than 1, not more than 3).
Updates from criminal justice officials in NYC:
“1- By law, you’re supposed to see a judge within 24 hours of arrest
2- 1st time small amount offenders are almost always offered to have their cases adjourned 1 year and dismissed so long as they are not rearrested. IN all likelihood rearrests in other jurisdictions will not have the case reoppened.
3- It is not a crime to posses small amounts, I do not have the exact weight off hand. It is only a crime if you pass a threshold weight, you have your weed in public view or it is actually burning.
4- They will arrest and prosecute you for residue: e.g., an empty pipe or bag.”
Law enforcement: The cops are d**ks, but they only normally act out when a complaint is filed, so if you can smoke inside a house, or even in the woods (Carthage is SURROUNDED by the boonies =]) , you’ll be safe.
Where to buy marijuana: You can get dopeage normally next to Agway, on Spring St. in Carthage, or you can go down S. Washington and just as you get the past the large cemetary on the right there will be apartments where many dealers live.
Marijuana prices: The prices on maryjane in Carthage are ALWAYZ at 10$ a gram, and don’t pay a cent more. If you find someone who tries to sell you pot for more than that, your getting a pinched bag of Mersh which on your part is obviously a pretty shitty deal.
Marijuana brands: Lots of Dro, with even more homegrown and outdoor. The outdoor you find in the area is normally GREAT skunky stuff that gets you feeling a VERY good head change. The dro is usually just a depressant, and it mellows you out bigtime. The skunk on the other hand, gets you so ripped outta your Gourd that you just can’t smoke anymore after about 3-4 bongs.
