    im visiting japan right now. im in nagoya, japan and i haven't been high in about 2 weeks! its not that im craving it bad or something like im a coke head, but i do miss it!

    so does anyone know if its hard to get marijuana in japan? any info on this would help. if theres a big marijuana culture here, etc?

    also, what are your opinions on transporting small ammounts of marijuana for personal use when flying, to say nagoya, japan for example! :) i decided not to bring any in fear of being arrested, etc.

    any input would be appreciated! thanks!

    I think the laws in Japan arer super strict on Marijuana. You get like a year automatically for possesion.

    Yea, Japan is not the place to smoke weed.

    On the other hand, they have a thriving porn/kink industry. Better indulge in that one instead ;)

    I've also heard that prices in Japan are like $50 a gram, and that it's really, really, REALLY hard to find.

    Pfft figures. Japan is a country that has the balls to control the war on drugs. They beat us to it. :D

    Paul McCartney got busted there (1990 maybe?) and I don't think he got that strict a fine. But then again they probably tightened them. Until 2001 kiddie porn was legal in Japan! :eek:

    A little story

    A few weeks ago I was at a 'Bowl Party' at the skatepark in my town, and there was a really cool japanese ripper there by the name of Yuksi. He's hilarious, just learning english... well, I see him smoking cigarettes occaisionally so, not having anyone to smoke with, I called him up to the hill I was sitting on and asked if he smokes weed. "Ohhh naaaiiiice!!!" bellows Yuksi.
    We spark that motha' up and take mad hits till our lungs almost explode. Just kidding, but we definitly had a great time smoking.

    He said that he used to smoke in Japan, and he lived in Tokyo. He told me that it's really hard to find weed there. Nothing about prices or anything. Yuski also told me that if you have good hookups then it isn't so bad, but you have to be very careful. Some people don't even know what weed smells like, and the cops may not care if you smoke it in public. On the other hand, you may be in the wrong place at the wrong time and receive a beat-down.

    I'd say ask around casually. And if you do manage to score some weed there then that's great(Careful though!). Japan's an awesome place. I'd love to go there one day. Have fun. :)

    Re: A little story

    Uhh.. neither 'Yuksi' or 'Yuski' are japanese names.
    That is to say, those names are impossible to produce with the japanese language.

    I think you either spelled it wrong (for example, Yukushi or Yusuki are both acceptable) or it never happened.
