Law enforcement: Cops mostly have bigger things to worry about than weed. If you smoke while driving, make sure not to be obvious and dont speed. Not a lot of undercover activity unless you get into the city or the malls.
Where to buy marijuana: Mill Creek park (the flats, bears den), Boardman Park (walk around on trails, ask people who look like stoners). If you aren’t white, you can get more into the city around public housing. Southern Park mall, and Eastwood mall are also good places, just watch out for mall security and the occasional undercover.
Marijuana prices: $35-40 a 1/4 for some alright mids, $75-100 for a half of mids $175+ an O for mids. If you know the right people, you can get an O of high mids for $100-125. Strains are usually more, but not much, prices are fairly cheap here.
Marijuana brands: Orange Kush, Diesel, Cali bud- come in every so often, almost impossible to just get off the street, however.
More information: If you’re white, go to a park or a suburb; if not, go downtown ask around public housing.
