Buying weed on craigslist

Ok, I get the federal implications, BUT Obama did say that prosecuting individual users and small time growers was not a top priority.

Also, in Denver and other communities simple possession is not criminalized.

So. why not buy an 1/8 off some guy on Craigslist. They are advertising it every day.

No really, I want to. Let me know how stupid, or uselessly paranoid I’m being. In less than 5 months it will be legal to buy in stores anyway so what’s the big deal?

I had to stop growing 7 months ago due to being underemployed, losing my condo, and moving into a small apartment. Or maybe I’m a loser, you decide. But if you call me a loser I’ll hunt you down because I have nothing else to do with my life.

How ’bout get a red card and go to a dispensary? If you can’t afford to do that, you can’t afford to get high, spend more time hustling up some money, then you can get high.

Serious here, get a career going, make some money and then you can kick back. Might have to go to school first, OK, take out a student loan to get the training for a decent job, and do your time in the job. The reason they pay you is because nobody wants to to do the work, there has to be some money as an enticement to go to the job every day. Good luck with that and PLEASE try to be legal, being in jail sucks ass.

I have a $30k+ student loan I’m paying back already for 15 years. no thanks. Nobody wants the skills I learned in college, thus I’m only getting dead end jobs I’m otherwise qualified for.

Plus learning website design, development, and marketing. not sure what else I can do to hustle up some money. I’ve started my own failed business. I even tried to write a book.

Thanks for the insight, but I’m nearly 40. I’ve almost given up now.

The best reason is that it remains illegal to do so under state and local laws too. Amendment 64 didn’t authorize person-to-person sales without appropriate licenses and permits, period. You’d be just as exposed to law enforcement as if you were buying crack on craigslist. Be safe.

Not necessarily, although it wouldn’t surprise me one bit either. Many in law enforcement aren’t in favor of legalization, and may crack down as much as possible, and all it would take is a few minutes online to post or respond to an ad/e-mail or two. If they set up a Dateline NBC style sting, they could bust person after person, only after a couple e-mails exchanging info and sitting back waiting for the person to show up.

CRS 18-18-406(2)(b)(I) is an OLD POSSESSION law. You do realize in May the Gov signed into law that wiped that statute out, don’t you?

In order for there to be conspiracy you have to be conspiring to commit an illegal act, acquiring and/or possessing up to an ounce is not an illegal act. What part of that don’t you understand?

Wrong. That is directly from sb 283, which was among the provisions signed into law this year. The conspiracy is conspiring with another person to commit an unlawful sale. But, whatever, buddy, I’m not trying to argue or be a jerk. Let’s just call it a difference of opinion.

Love the way Jus handles himself..props to Jus.

This is a perfect example of members getting caught up in differences of opinion, and turning that into a flame exchange.
Forums are designed for sharing and exchanging thoughts, advice and, many, more positive aspects.

This is a cannabis forum, and the posts should reflect that.

” stoner kulture” should consist of nothing but peace harmony, and some joking around here and there.

I can’t for the life of me why folks get angry on these forums RIU in particular.
Anywho.
Why risk your freedom for an eighth of herb that you could obtain legally.

The CL deal is. shady to say the least.

I’m not sure on the actual law, but just because the The State’s Constitution has decriminalized it..

The fact remains; cannabis is a Schedule 1 narcotic at the Federal level.
Imo..
These ” back channel” sales could potentially destroy the progress we have made in the legalization movement.
You don’t have one friend that could acquire meds for you until the law settles and all the fogginess clears up?

Again, I’m not trying to argue..simply adding my opinion.

Craigslist is a Great Place To Buy Marijuana

Buying weed online is a cherished tradition as old as the internet itself. Before Silk Road and bitcoin, there was searching Craigslist for “420” and nervously arranging a furtive meet with someone you hoped wasn’t a police officer. It was sketchy—somehow even sketchier than wandering around and looking for shoes hanging from overhead wires—but trust us, it worked… to a degree. What a seedy bag that was.

These days, of course, cannabis is legal in places like Oregon, where anyone aged 21 or over can buy recreational marijuana in a licensed store—but why bother with all that when you still have Craigslist?

As the Statesman-Journal discovered , legalization has meant boom times for the online marijuana marketplace. On Craigslist, the Portland, Oregon-area offerings include a $20 jar of butter and a $300,000 investment opportunity in a soon-to-be-licensed grow.

It makes perfect sense—marijuana is legal, Craigslist is legal—so why not use Craigslist to buy and sell marijuana and marijuana-related products, be they commercial-grade kitchen equipment for edibles , concentrate extractors, real estate or $100 ounces of Zkittlez ?

One particularly enterprising woman has put together marijuana-themed “gift boxes” just in time for the holidays, complete with “body butter,” massage oil, and a big fat Rice Krispie treat, the newspaper reported. At $100 for the box, it’s a home-grown marijuana-friendly Williams-Sonoma competitor.

But as the killjoys with the Oregon State Police are demonstrating, you can’t actually buy or sell marijuana without a state license. That’s what burned 29-year-old Jason Owen, who thought he was going to trade a pound of cannabis for a snowmobile in October.

The snowmobile’s owner was a state trooper, who met with Owen and gave him a citation instead, the newspaper reported. How lame.

You can give marijuana away in Oregon no problem, but all marijuana sales require a state Liquor Control Commission or Health Authority dispensary license, the newspaper reported.

You can gift marijuana, but it has to be a straight-up gift; no bartering allowed. Marijuana products in Oregon undergo strict tests for potency as well as pesticide and mold contamination—which, if you’re buying something off of Craigslist, was probably dispensed with.

The same is true in other recently legal states like California, where the Adult Use of Marijuana Act allows you to give marijuana away no problem, but prohibits for-profit sales without a license.

Speaking of licenses— you can buy those on Craigslist, too . If you have a spare $150,000 lying around, you can buy a permit for a Los Angeles medical marijuana collective.

Craigslist also technically prohibits the sale of “controlled substances,” though obviously that ban isn’t very stringently enforced. A prosecutor with the Marion County district attorney’s office told the newspaper that there wasn’t any investigations of Craigslist’s cannabis cornucopia that she knew of—meaning, try as it may, the Statesman-Journal has yet to ruin a good thing.

You can keep up with all of HIGH TIMES’ marijuana news right here .
