Legislation: Possession of 30 grams or less of marijuana is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail and a fine of up to $500. The penalties for possession of greater than 30 grams increase to a possible one year in prison and a fine up to $5,000.
Law enforcement: Cops will grab you for anything. If caught you will go to central booking and be held for 48hrs.
Where to buy marijuana: Look for younger dudes near the University on a weekend night, the basketball courts, or downtown near the mall.. Try to talk to em for a few minutes; If its a U.C. they’ll be extremely rude and walk away (one actually told me he was a cop before I mentioned weed and that I was interfering with an ‘ongoing drug surveilliance’) You’re best bet is the hit up Mulberry St. on a Friday or Saturday night and try to bust a party; It’ll be readily availiable in there (As will free alcohol).
Marijuana prices: Depending on what you get $10 – $30 a gram. $50 – 70 for a half $90 – $300 per oz.. rest is really dependant on who the dealer is and what the stock is like.
Marijuana brands: Schwagg, Downtown Brown, Mids, AZ, Haze, & Dro, but again it depends on the time of year, the dealer your talking to, and the stock on hand.
More information: Southside & Westside watch for police; recently the areas got really hot and the city has increased patrols in those districts. Downtown, Eastside, & North you should be Ok. Up North be on the watch for white dealers as they usually sell gahhhbage.
