Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5
Legislation: Possession of any amount of marijuana is a misdemeanor and is punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine up to $2,000.
Law enforcement: Too many cops, be very vigilant. It’s a college town, so cops are just waiting to bust anybody on anything they can. Locals are totally cool and mostly stoners anyway, just be sure you’re clear of police.
Where to buy marijuana: It shouldn’t be too hard to find, just ask students. Ask around at the main coffee shop downtown, Breaking New Grounds. After a certain time on the weekends the streets are filled with people in various states of inebriation, so ask any of them. Durham is a pretty stoner friendly town.
Marijuana prices: Schwag: $25 an 1/8 Mids (beesters): $35-40 an 1/8
Danks: $45-50 an 1/8
Marijuana brands: If you have connections you can get some phenomenal weed, best in New Hampshire. Most of the time you’ll probably just be dealing with mid-grade stuff, though there is always plenty of schwag around.
More information: I recommend that you don’t smoke in public in Durham, the cops know the smell well. If you’re looking for a nature walk experience, definitely check out College Woods. Great trails for blazing and other students don’t really care.
