Jersey City, NJ, New Jersey

Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 3.5

Legislation: New Jersey CDS laws apply. Possession of 50 grams or less of marijuana or being under the influence of marijuana is a disorderly persons offense, punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Possession of greater than 50 grams is punishable by up to 18 month in jail and a fine of up to $25,000. Any possession within 1,000 feet of a school adds an additional 100 hours or more of community service to the sentence.

Law enforcement: Police treatment varies depending on where you get caught. If you’re in Greenville, there’s a good chance that cops will take your stash and let you go if you’re not a seller, especially if you’re White. Anywhere else in Jersey City, they might do the same thing if you’re not making a scene, but it depends on the cop.

Where to buy marijuana: Greenville: Communipaw, Bergen Ave., MLK. St. Peter’s College, Lincoln Park, The Heights, Barber Shops. If you don’t have any hookups, you can usually approach young thug types. If they don’t have a connection, they’ll usually point you in the right direction. If buying in the Heights, be very careful. Police regularly patrol the neighborhoods and rarely hassle people, but will stop you if you’re shady. It’s easier to score stuff in Greenville and a lot less police presence, but the neighborhoods are real shady.
