Possession greater than 1.5 ounces increases the penalties to up to 12 months in jail.
Law enforcement: The good thing about the cops and buds in Elon is this: There aren’t many cops in the first place and they care solely about underage drinking. That is it, they do no other type of policework. However the frequent checkpoints are something to watch out for if you’re on the streets.
Where to buy marijuana: Sheridan Apartments, Smith Dorm, Lighthouse Tavern, any random party. Wherever you are in Elon you will for sure be in the company of someone else who smokes pot. And…plenty of people will be willing to help you out if you smoke them up. Just ask!
Marijuana prices: All prices are for 3.5 grams…
Marijuana brands: You will probably have someone say “Dude, I can get you Haze” and then get nothing of the sort. So I wouldn’t pay too much attention to it.
More information: Finally, Elon full of smokers and most of the time you will have easy access to the marijuana supply. However, the school is famous for its droughts every couple months when there isn’t even a GB’s worth of weed in the town.
If at any point you are suspicious that it might be “that time of the semester”, I advise you to give up immediately because you will end up spending your entire night doing nothing but look for a bag and waste it. And you won’t find bud.
