A local reporter noted that, from personal experience, you can easily “spend a night in central lockup on State Street for half a gram…”
Just pretty much depends on the neighborhood your in, If your not in like a really rich stuck up area, your pretty much ok. If they catch they might just have you dump what’s left.
Where to Buy Marijuana in Chicago: Marijuana use is widely accepted throughout Chicago, IL, so that asking a friendly person on the street is quite safe. Marijuana is also the most readily available drug in Illinois.
Purchasing Marijuana downtown (southwest of Michigan AVE. and South st.) in the after-dark hours is an option, as well as asking around the clubs and bars in the more quite and young neighborhoods such as LakeView.
Rockford is a great place to score pot very cheap, it is located about 80 miles westward and a little north of Chicago.
our most recent reports are; “There are many different places to by in Chicago being a big city. My best guide would be if your on the northside to buy in one of following neighborhoods, Lincoln Park, Old Town Rogers Park or Lake View. If your buying on the southside the best neighborhoods are Hyde Park, South Chicago, Ocassionaly the near southside neighborhood works. The biggest Places you can always buy are Washington Park, Engelwood, Woodlawn, Riverdale, however, beware washington park ect. Are very very dangerous neighborhoods. The best advice would be keep the windows up, doors locked, The name these neighborhoods “Chicago’s Jungels” they have been known to be the violent of the violent. Generally Jamaicans may approach the car looking friendly but suddenly pull out a gun.”

more information: Keep in mind that Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, meaning the level of tolerance and availability is rather uneven. More tolerant neighborhoods include Rogers Park (old skool hippie flavor with a lot of African, Caribbean, and South Asian immigrants), Wicker Park (heavy on hip nightlife, artists, musicians, activists), Hyde Park (intellectuals and jazz fans). I’ve either witnessed on multiple occasions or actually toked up myself outside in each of those neighborhoods, doing the casual in-the-park or walking-down-the-alley thing. On the other hand, there are also neighborhoods that are less than friendly toward heads. These might be Bridgeport and the northwest neighborhoods like Jefferson Park, where a lot of the hard-drinking city cops and firemen live. To a visitor, I’d say that the safest bets (safest from law enforcement, that is) for scores would be in the dj clubs in Wicker Park, North Halsted, or Rogers Park. Just look for the guy who isn’t i n club wear and isn’t dancing–he’s there for a reason. The so-called open air drug markets on parts of the West and South Sides are always hot with cops and, increasingly, surreveillance cams, so you’d do well to avoid those places. Best thing to do is to cultivate a few contacts before coming…friend of a friend kind of thing, getting a few references set up, in which case good quality stuff is easily had.
