Big crackdown !
 
Im glad to see that the cops are cracking down on the arch criminals in Playa .Why just the other day I saw a group of 6 or so Policia backed up by 4 heavily armed Marina soldiers slapping the cuffs on a fake cigar vendor at the beach ! Too bad for you buddy, crime doesn't pay . Meanwhile if I walk down la quinta day or night I will be asked if I want to buy drugs every 50 feet. Even with a cop standing right there. WTF ? But hey ,at least those stogies are off the streets !

Hyperbole perhaps?


Or not. When I walk down 5th between the ADO and 12th, I have been offered drugs each and every block, sometimes twice.... but only when I'm alone, unshaven, and dressed down. Basically when I look like a hippie.


When I dress "normal" and I'm with just my wife, I may get asked a once or twice in an hour. (or zero)


When I have kids with me, I don't think I've ever been asked.

My BF and I were there in March, staying between 15 and 20th, around Calle 6 or so. We would walk to Fifth and stroll a few blocks in either direction most days.

I would say he was asked if he wanted to buy drugs at least twice every hour we spent on Fifth in that vicinity- for some reason once we crossed Constituyentes (spelling) it was vastly reduced.

They always started off asking about cigars and then since that was no, want some weed, blow?

I am 47 and he is 55 and we are pretty clean cut, so I think they don't judge books by their covers.

Odd, where most of the poppies are grown, in Guerrero, we never get asked. Like, never ever. In PDC, it's daily. Obviously more of a tourist drug trade here.

Twenty-six visits to Playa in the last 30 years and I've never been offered drugs! (I'm feeling left out. :rolleyes:)

My height and the fact that I look like an old Lutheran minister (so I'm told) probably signals 'no sale'. ;)

Whe I'm in my black Oakley sunglasses I'm asked a LOT more than when I'm not. I'm clean cut 55 year old but must look like my old stoner former self still....cause I get asked a bunch.

Just curious. How much are pot and coke going for? What's the quality like? I always envisioned it being a ripoff. I know how good the pot is here in Colorado and what it costs but never purchased it in MX.

On the street... cut and expensive.
In a bar...mostly pure and cheap.
So I've been told :rolleyes:

The pot is similar to "homegrown" from the 80's. No where near the medical/recreational stuff you get today.

Allegedly...

The pot is crap. A good percent of medicines in Mexico are chinese fake crap. Lots of real estate fraud. Mexico has some work to do.
