Montreal, QC, Canada
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 5
Legislation: Marijuana is legal only for medical use in Montreal, with a doctor’s permit.
Small amounts may be discarded but dont carry more than you have to. This time of year the cops crack down. Always be on the lookout for suspicious situations. Just because pot is wideley tolerated it doesnt make it cool to flaunt.
another reporter added: “Not entiarly legal but everyone dose it here so no one cares.”
Law Enforcement: Watch out for cops. If you’re a white person with money and a little pot you’ll get away. If you’re a minority they’ll at least give you a ticket. But usually you get jacked and jailed or even worse. Just try to not be so obvious. But more importantly don’t carry large amounts. Especially don’t carry it individually bagged.
a different reporter noted: “Thought I saw a cop wave to me while I took a toke from my pipe one evening after dinner.”
and also: “Most cops that i have encountered were pretty cool about the pot, they just gave it back and told me to have a nice day, but other cops will ether throw it out or if the cops having a bad day, will fine you ”
and also: “Police are very very easy with weed here. I once was walking downtown with a spliff and I walked by a police car. The officers looked at me and drove off. as long as you dont look sketchy or like a dealer they wont do much. if you like to smoke in parks its amazing because not many people will bother you. Unless you go to certain parks with security. LIke in the area of Westmount there are Public Security Officers Aka PSO’s and even Banana PoPo(this name is given to them because of their bright yellow give-a-way jeeps) and they will be annoying. They cant do much but Kick you out or call the actual Police on you. so if you’re ever in the area remember to just walk away.”
and : “it’s only legal to have it for medicinal usage but police don’t care much about tourists.”
Where to buy Marijuana in Montreal: Try the place Mont-Royal. Ask the young punks there (there’re nice people, don’t worry), they’ll tell you to whom you should talk. Watch out for the time, they don’t come before noon!
Alternatively you can go on Ste-Catherine, next to the UQAM (Université du Québec A Montreal).
You can also stay in downtown and walk up along St-Denis.
The little cities around Montreal will sell better and cheaper pot! Especially Laval and St-eustache, that can be reached with a train for tourits, you just have to walk around and ask for a number that delivers! Often you get a gram or 2 in extra just because you bought something! According to recent reports it’s been a while (2-3 years) since anyone on the streets got caught!! So in a way it’s safer than Montreal !
a recent report we received is: “In my opinion the west island Verdun and NDG are the BEST places to buy pot. Don’t buy off adult. You can ask for it in metros. Usually the teenagers from local high schools can tell you where to find it. If you’re dumb you will be served a point 8. You’re better off headed to see university or college students in the area and get more bang for your bucks. In NDG however you get a gram for 10 bucks an eigth for 25$ and a quarter from 40 to 50 bucks. If you know people you will find some of the best pot the world has to offer in this city.”
and another reporter added: “Mont-Royal park had a great dealer, sold good sized grams for 10 (1/8 for 30, 1/4 for 50 bucks. He found me, didn’t have to look for him! Pot was great, very stony green, tasted good w/long lasting high!, Mont Royal station had two young punk dealers selling half g’s for 10, good and long lasting high so I didn’t feel ripped off.”
and also: “Yes, it’s really easy to find weed in Montreal, for sure, and even easier than in Paris !!
I’ve lived over here for about one month, and I never had difficulties in finding something to smoke. Just walk downtown (St Catherine…) and you will be proposed weed (and others if you want…). The only thing is to negociate prices because in the street, teenagers want to sell you their weed about 50 % more expensive than what you can find through more regular ways, so don’t be affraid and ask them to lower the price.”
and also: “Montreal is a great place for pot heads. You can virtually find weed anywhere in the city, parks, downtown, near wherever you’re staying. For tourists the BEST and most SIMPLE way of obtaining BOOM TREES is to go to “Mount Royal” on Sundays, at what is called the “Tam Tams” Most people go there to enjoy the Tams, buy stuff from street vendors, sword fight, and ESPECIALLY BUY GOOD CRONIC. If you look like a pot head or if you smoke cigarettes and walk up the mountain to get a good spot to sit on the grass. you will be offered by many different people. this means if you’re looking for bud, on the mountain the bud will find you. The best people to go to on the Mountain is the Rastas because they have the best chronic make sure you see the weed before you buy it because they will most of the time take your money and just leave. If you have hook ups you can almost get weed anywhere else. I personally have people who will drive to my house come
inside and scale out what I want for me. Now thats called service.”
and: “I don’t really know where the locals go but as a tourist I found it amazing easy to locate. Rte. St-Denis is full of cheap hotels that don’t appear to be drug free and while drunkenly stumbling down it I was offered Crack and Marijuana. The much more reputable Rte Ste-Catherine or as it’s locally pronounced (Roo Saint Catrare) has alot of bars and clubs aswell as a few smoke shops, and while walking down the street after 2 AM I was often stopped and spoken to in French when I told them I only spoke English they paused and then asked if I wanted to buy any trees.”
In Montreal the more you buy the more you get.
10 for a gram

Brands: You can find virtually anything. Very well grown hydroponique M39 is easy to get your hands on at a very good price. As far as exotics go there’s alot of jack hair, quebec gold, skunk and some nebs. If you really have good hookups you can find blueberry, silver haze red rooster, jack hair and -bubblegum.
Ak47 and afghan aren’t hard to find either. There’s many varieties of pot in this city and it’s very tolerated. You can literally buy what it is you need to grow from a pot shop.
another reporter added: “In montreal there are so many types of bud.
I’ve only lived here for about 2 years and I’ve come across over 20 different types of bud. Unless you smoke a 3.5 everyday almost anything will get you high. if you want cheaper bud look for M-39 or exotics(exos) although if you meet the right people you can find much better tasting, smoking, high. from types like Jack variations(jack hair, tripple jack, jack berry. and I personnally love Jack because its also my name. You can also find other BOOM chronic like Blueberry, White Widow, Red Rooster, The Kush, Skunk, Apollo, Nebula.
its either you get compacted hydroponic m’s or fluffy beautiful Jack.”

This town is RICH in cannabis in all shapes and sizes. There are many oportunities to sample our pot and if you are a pot lover Odds are you’ll smoke for free. Canadians are waaay friendlier by nature than americans. So don’t be afraid to make friends. People will give you a ciggarette if you ask for it. And I have been given bud and joints FOR FREE!!!! And i still get it on the regular .17 to 22 is the age group that are best suited to help you. COME TO MONTREAL!! BLAZE IN THE CLUBS!! CHECK OUT THE HONEYS IN THE SUMMER!! AND DON’T JUST TRY THE POT, LET THE POT TRY YOU!

WeBeHigh’s city tale:
First of all, what one should know is that weed’s called “pot”. So don’t be surprised if one asks you in the street if you sell some pot. (I think here about French people who might ask for some “beu”! The Quebeckers won’t get it.
Weed is sold for $10 (Canadian bucks, of course)a gram.
If one gets the idea of crossing the whole Canada by hitch-hiking (if you’re a girl, get a man with you, though), one will meet all kind of people, from farmers in the prairies, with their pick-up, to business men, all of them with their bag of pot hidden under the passenger seat, giving it to you and telling you with a big smile “Would you roll a joint? And here’s for you on your way…”
Ha, if you especially come from Europe, be aware of the Canadian way of rolling joints. They use a single little rolling paper, and roll the weed without tobacco or anything else in it.
The weed usually smoked is hydroponic, although the sun is high enough to make some really good weed growing, particularly on the west side (no snow over there).
Unless you know some good contacts who comes to deliver at your own place (or meet you in the street, which is less safe, no need for saying), one will have to go to the dealers on the street. They’re pretty obvious in downtown, usually dressed in baggy jeans. Go on Ste-Catherine, next to the UQAM (Université du Québec A Montreal). Well, this will be around all the subway’s exits around the UQAM.
The pattern is always the same. They sell, then go for a reload, one can watch people from all background starting to accumulate at the same place, then several (or might be just one) guys arrive, and here’s the pot rush. The cops might arrive to arrest everybody, so you’d better watch out a bit. If you keep an eye around, you shouldn’t be in any trouble. Cops are used to the traffic anyway, considering that the business is owned by the Hell’s Angels… So don’t try to sell on their territory, by the way…
You can also stay in downtown and walk up along St-Denis. This is a very popular street. In front of the ‘Couche-tard’ pot’s sold, but you can try all the way staying downtown. The other extremely popular place to way (and way much nicer) is at the place Mont-Royal. Ask the young punks there (there’re nice people, don’t worry), they’ll tell you to whom you should talk. Watch out for the time, they don’t come before noon!
Where does one smoke pot? Well, the answer becomes obvious once you get there… Everywhere is the good one. The Canadian police won’t arrest you for smoking weed, just keep your hand with the joint (“bat” in Quebecker) down, and that’s all. As soon as the sun shows up in spring, parks in Montreal get packed with people smoking weed. I’ve met some Canadian people who were actually smoking at the terrace of cafés…
More information: I went to Montreal for New Years (2007) with a friend. We were walking around the city and we went into a very cool head shop. The girl working there was very nice (and hot) and told us were to find weed: she said “go up a few blocks to the metro station ‘Mont-Royal’.” Across the street from the metro station “Mont-Royal” I saw three punks smoking two joints by the entrance to some building less then half a block from the metro station, one was lying on a step(he was probably homeless now that I think about it). I asked them were I could find some pot, they asked me how much I wanted, I asked for 2 grams, they said $20(canaidan). I gave them $20 and they gave me probably a little more then a gram, definitly not 2 grams(I did feel betrayed when I realized I was ripped off). Those people I bought from had two big dogs who so friendly (probably high!)and they were sniffing me the whole time I was talking with their owners, and one of them licked my pants ! When I was talking to those punks I told them I was from New York, the girl in the group said they were all from out of town too, I think she said she was from Toronto or somewhere else in Canada. That stuff was called M-39, and it wasnt very good (I was so disapionted, cause I thought Canada was supposed to have killer weed).
The second time I bought weed: I was drunk, wandering the streets at night, and looking for a cheap pub when I saw some shady characters (meaning they looked like dealers). This was on Rue St. Catherine(a busy street) near Rue Guy. I asked them (about 4 kids) if they knew where I could find some weed. One of them sold me a gram of bubble gum for 20 bucks (I only had american cause I ran out of canadian money so he was pretty happy cause American money is worth more). After that transaction, another of those kids was like “I got weed too, and mine’s better than his!” and the first guy was like “Yeah, his stuff is better!” but I had ran out of money! He tried to sell me a gram of the better stuff for $20, then lowered the price to $10, but I didnt have any money so I couldnt get the better stuff 🙁 The Bubble gum was pretty good, not great or anything, like the beasters I get at school (UB).
Montreal is a cool city, people are friendly, and who doesnt love a city with drinking age of 18 (I am 20, so I cant drink at home yet)! Cubans cigars are good, too(especially the cohiba brand)!
