Weed in Tampa, Florida

Tampa is one of the largest cities in Florida and a great place to visit if you are in the area. There are quite a few beaches and parks in and around Tampa, so if you are into swimming and sunbathing, Tampa is the place to be. It’s also a University town, so there is an amazing life to go with the great beaches and climate. If you want to smoke some weed while in Tampa, then you’re going to find it, if you do look a little:

Cannabis laws in Florida

Florida is yet to legalize recreational marijuana, but the drug laws that are in place are not particularly bad. On a state level, the possession of a small amount of cannabis, less than 20 grams, is considered a misdemeanor. You can get a year in jail, a 1000$ fine, and/or your driver’s license can be suspended. However, some counties, like Tampa have voted different rules in. In Tampa, if you are caught with less than 20 grams of weed, you will get a set fine of $75 for a first offense, $150 for a second, and $300 for a third. Medicinal marijuana is legal in Floerda.

As you can see, Florida is chill with weed and anything less than 20 grams is decriminalized in Tampa. As long as you don’t carry more than on you, and you don’t drive a car while high, you are going to be fine.

Getting weed in Tampa

Most locals have a hookup, so if you are visiting Tampa, finding weed will require a bit of searching. While there is a lot of weed, that is easily available, in the bad parts of town, it’s not recommended to go there. Instead, you should look around the University of South Florida. There are a lot of people smoking around there and there are also some hippies selling. Just ask some students or someone that looks like a stoner and they will sort you out. The prices vary a lot, as tourists often get ripped off, but feel free to haggle.
