If you wanted to buy pot for the first time...
I have never bought pot. However I used to smoke it once in awhile. I have a very good pal from the good old days coming for a visit soon. I'm quite sure he still smokes and I want to be a good hostess, lol.

We live many miles apart now. How in the world could I find a source in a very rural place I now live in - when I don't know who to ask, and don't know who to trust? Or should I assume he'll bring his own?

Friends I have here and now - drink - and don't do any pot etc...

1. Ask a cop. I'll bet they know.
Wait...no, don't do that.

7. No, but Orange Blossom Trail.
I've never smoked, but even I know that if you want "something" in Orlando, you hit OBT.

3. good luck with that but tread lightly. I'd see if the pal could bring some
although it's harmless, it's dangerous to try to buy the stuff.

DONT GO ON CRAIGLIST AND ANSWER ADS FOR 420 FRIENDS-> THOSE ARE COPS.

Do you have any friends who work in restaurants? That's the easiest connection

Ha, I know a guy who looks like he knows a guy, etc.

But who the heck knows, just because he rides a Harley and has a gray ponytail down his back?

Thanks for responding, nomorenomore08

6. He'll bring his own.
And most likely, he will set you up.

Be very careful otherwise.

8. Chances are if you live in a very rural town there' are a lot of potheads
What else is there to do? I'm sure one of your drinking buddies probably knows of someone :)

13. Reminds me of a very funny episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm
When Larry wants to get some pot for his father's glaucoma. Goes into LA, sees this guy on the street (Hugo from LOST!) and tries to be cool and casual, which of course doesn't work.

LOL it was funny. That would be me if I ever found myself in that situation - I'd have no clue who or how to do it either.

14. First, totally ignore LeftyMom's advice. Second: Put an ad on Craigslist
Heh.

No, really. Just about everyone in rural areas has a stash, most grow their own, at least in Vermont they do. Ask people "if they smoke", if they do, they'll catch on, if they don't they'll offer you a cigarette.

17. Wait up! Hold up!
DO NOT try to buy weed if you don't know who you are dealing with. Your friend will most likely bring their own. Seriously, you do NOT want to approach someone you do not know to buy dope. That's a big NO-NO.

Trust me. Your friend will most likely bring their own. If you are still concerned about it, just talk to them about it and it'll be ok.

Again, don't approach someone you don't know to buy dope.

If it's a cop, you are busted.
If it's a drug dealer and they don't know you, you could be in for a horrible night, if you live.

21. Another option
Show up at parties during harvest time. Shit, people will GIVE you some of their buds. Farmers are proud of their crop, bud is no different ;)

37. 911 is for emergencies...
Edited on Sun May-03-09 12:01 PM by Pharlo
That would be the friend is here and we need the weed right NOW!!!

In this instance, the individual is trying to prepare in advance. Best suggestion I can come up with is have the OP call 211 and inform them that he is conducting research into the effects of medical marijuana on the A(H1N 1) virus and that he already has access to several individuals with the disease, a control placebo, and needs the name, address, and phone number of the nearest medical marijuana provider.

They don't always have "a look."

It could be your neighbor's mom, your preacher, your sister's father-in-law's niece's basketball coach...

That way you can do your part if he does still indulge. Nothing funner than stoners making fingerfoods :D

You never know, too.. lots of flaws in your idea.
-pal could be "in recovery"
-lots of rat bastids out there
-cops suck as does jail
-smokers have their own stash/contacts
-yada yada

hehe.

Striving to be a good hostess is to be admired but I don't think that extends to providing illegal substances!
