Law enforcement: The cops here don’t seem to really care much, this is a liberal college town in semi-rural Maine, lots of hippy types here. If caught usualy they will take your bag or dump it out and give you a slap on the wrist, thats the local cops, then you have campus police, I have not heard of anyone getting caught by campus police but I assume they would be a bit less forgiving as they are employed by the University. Then of course you have the Staties (state police) the older ones are much nicer and laid back then the younger ones, but I think generally everywhere the cops fresh out of the academy are more likely to give you a hard time. But around here we don’t worry much about being caught.
Where to buy marijuana: Well there are a lot of dealers around as this is a college town, so there is also a large variety of bud. A lot of it is junk however. To find good bud here you just need to do some networking and you will usualy be finding yourself buying from a local. However if you’d like to take the lazy approach to finding weed you can head down to the Sandy river and hang around the older railroad bridge or small beaches and eventualy someone “will” show up and light up, from there you begin to network. Other then that you can just ask around, it’s not likley you will get in any trouble. If your around in the fall you can even hit up the local.
Harvest fest and get many different varieties.
