Georgetown, Guyana

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3

Legislation: Possession, sale, and use of marijuana is illegal under Guyana law.

Law enforcement: The law enforcement of this very poor country is sparse and often inundated with far more serious offences. I wouldn’t go blowing it in their faces but there’s little to worry about.

Where to buy marijuana: Marijuana can be found most anywhere in the coastal city of this tropical region. Just ask a bum or some kids and for dollars or euros they’ll be more than happy to help out. The market and the seawall are two solid places.

Marijuana prices: Here’s the kicker: almost never more than 5 USD a gram…. I also inquired as to the price of cocaine and that was even less!!

Marijuana brands: Since the country is very poor it is seldom that really good marijuana comes around as most residents can’t afford it and there really aren’t too many tourists. Most is mid to low grade but never laced.

More information: The people of Guyana are friendly but very poor, if you are white you will be asked for money probably 15 times a day if you’re out and about in the market, or by the seawall.
