State College, PA, Pennsylvania
Smoking tolerance level [1= very illegal 5=virtually legal]: 2
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:Being primarily a college town with little in the way of real crime, law enforcement (especially University police) are often on the lookout for people smoking in public. Avoid smoking outdoors, especially on campus. The intramural fields near East Halls are especially dangerous and are almost always under surveillance – watch for bike cops, as they’re excellent at sneaking up on you . Dorm rooms, frat houses and apartments are always safest.
Where to buy marijuana in State College, PA: Since almost everyone in the town is a college student, asking hip looking people on the streets can yield results. There is a large number of smoke shops downtown (Tall Shiva, Jamaican Junction, Dragon Chaser’s Emporium, Artifax) where most customers (and employees) will be able to hook you up. The easiest ways to find buds are frats (not always) and house parties, where there will inevitably be one or more people who can help you out.
Marijuana Prices in State College, PA:
Brands: Middies are almost always readily available for those who look. Headies appear sporadically throughout the year, usually heavily indica, and good outdoor weed is easy to come across during fall semester. Occasionally you can luck out and stumble upon high-quality homegrown – in the past year we’ve seen Grapefruit, Northern Lights, Blueberry Haze, Sour Diesel and Pineapple. It’s always a good idea to stock up when you find good buds, as droughts will occur a few times per year where the town is completely dry.
More Information: It’s almost impossible to get caught in State College if you use your head. Freshmen are usually victimized the most, because they worry about smoking out of their dorm rooms and take risks by smoking outdoors. My advice to any incoming students is to make friends with your RAs as soon as you arrive, or, if you’re unlucky and wind up with a douchebag, make friends on other floors with cool RAs.
