Top 3 ways to find weed in DC – May 2022 Edition

So you are visiting Washington DC for Memorial Day 2022 and you want to learn 3 easy ways on how to find weed in DC? This guide is for those that do not know how to find weed in the district or if it is illegal to buy weed in DC. Initiative 71 clearly informs us that “while the District’s marijuana statute allows for possession of small amounts of marijuana, it is not legal to sell it. As a result, MPD has been responsive to complaints of such illegal activity at local businesses throughout the city”. So let’s get started on how to find weed in dc.

#1. Find weed in DC using Delivery and Pickup Services.

Find weed in DC using Delivery and Pickup Services

My folks picked me up from the airport and the first thing I said was “where can we find weed in DC?” As we drove around I noticed a few “Smoke Shops” on the ride. I didn’t even know DC had weed stores. My friends informed me DC doesn’t and explained to me what Initiative 71 is. As I understood it, it simply means you can transport a couple ounces in your car, possess it, and gift it to friends.

So how do you find a weed pick up or delivery service in DC? The internet,  with the choice of a few special keywords,  will avail you to a wide variety of options. Along with social media there are ” vendors” at your fingertips. A top-notch weed delivery or pickup service will answer questions, explain strains, and the process of receiving goods if there are questions once checking out the online process. The keyword is service in delivery service. I am thankful to deal with Select Co-op. They have a beautiful flower menu usually filled with my favorite sativa strains.

# 2. Find Weed in DC at Pop-up Events.

Pop-ups can take place anywhere from a family home, an old store, or an industrial park. Who knows. We visited pop-ups in the back of a bakery, someone’s basement, and what appeared to be a loading dock. The simple set-up usually includes some space where “vendors” can display their goods on a card table of some sorts. The “vendors” pay a small fee for the table.

The most generous word we could use to describe the quality of weed we found at the pop-up is transient. The vibe tends to come off more flea market than fine dining. With COVID around I am thankful my guys at Select Co-Op do pickups outside. Easy, no hassle, no drama, and no bullshit. Lingering to shop at a pop-up is like hanging out at a bar or restaurant. I play it safe these days and avoid crowds of people and hanging with folks I do not know.  

4 reasons why not to go to DC Pop-up events

Reason 1:

I don’t like sketchy addresses and crowds. I’m picky about my surroundings, and going to random location to get jostled by a crowd to fight over a minimal selection isn’t exactly my idea of a good time. Some of these popups are random as fuck. On my first time ever going to a popup, I was with my boy and his friend who was full of wack suggestions. He had heard about it on social media and said it sounded like a good idea. It seemed like an alright idea, so when he called the Lyft I just got in.

It dropped us off in a sparse looking neighborhood with a few people standing outside. I didn’t want to show that I was freaked out, but I was definitely not expecting that. He made it all hot, too, by trying to joke too loudly with two big dudes with dreads that were standing outside what turned out to be the spot. It turned out that sellers were starting to leave. After all that! There were one or two sellers still around, but they were overeager and I was trying to get out of there. That friend of a friend was never allowed to come around again.

Reason 2:

I like being on my time, not yours. Besides the location and the sketchiness of the one pop up I did go to, I really didn’t like the timing thing. Most pop-ups I’ve been asked to go to are in the middle of the day, from like 1pm to 6 in the afternoon. Yes, I work from home right now, but who wants to stop what they’re doing to go drive to pickup pot?

If I were going to look for something good, how would I be able to find it if I’m on a time crunch? You can find popups that go later, but a lot of them are in questionable areas and for me, weed, money, and nightfall in an unfamiliar location don’t mix. I don’t like leaving work in the middle of the day, and why should I have to when my guy at Select can meet me in a convenient location for pickup, or meet me for delivery? 

Reason 3:

I like getting to know the guy on the other end of the transaction. Call me old fashioned, but I’m like my father in that I have a guy (or a girl) for everything. Car trouble? I got a guy for that. Money talk? I got a guy for that. Where to order the best Ethiopian take out? I got a guy for that too. These popups are full of randoms with varying levels of quality. If you don’t like it there’s no recourse. I don’t have to explain why that’s unappealing to me. 

Reason 4:

I like good quality shit. Quality is king. Consistency, taste, and convenience. To me, each one influences the other. If you’re consistent, the people will come. If it has the best taste, the people will come. If you make it convenient, the people will come back. If you build it, they will come. So I pass on inconsistency on any of these fronts, and look for the best way to get what I want, which for me is my guy at Select. Until then, I pass on any of that other shit.

# 3. Find weed in DC using storefronts.

DC Storefronts

DC has a few storefronts so obviously you should just google one and walk-in to grab something. Wrong! In my Charlie Murphy voice (R.I.P.). It is legal to transport and gift marijuana in the District of Columbia. It is not legal to exchange weed for money so a storefront is an illegal business waiting to get raided, possibly with you in it! So what about the storefronts you see around Washington DC?

Simply put they are a sting, a bust, a crackdown waiting to happen whenever the police get around to them. The police and the neighbors know that cannabis is being sold as well as other THC containing products. Storefronts are literally a billboard advertising to the police, “lock me up whenever you want”.

Find Law, or any basic law website will inform that concerning weed in Washington DC. There are NO LEGAL storefronts. While it is legal to give marijuana to someone, the sale of other items to make that gift can run afoul of the law quickly. There have been arrests made for these kinds of activities”.

The Washington Post, as well as a plethora of other media outlets have covered cannabis arrests in Washington, DC. Simply put, such storefronts are simply being given enough rope to hang themselves. The District is clear on how cannabis may be shared with friends as a gift.
