SuspiciousFishThis is a unique situation so there is more going on than "Bro its CO, weed is everywhere..." He is a new Freshman at CU so I am throwing some advice on how to get a longterm hookup instead of wandering the Hill every week asking for a sack. Yeah weed is legal in CO but its also regulated which means selling it to 18 yr olds is still pretty illegal. Especially since that 18 yr old is going to take it right back to the dorms which is a pretty high risk area of getting busted. Its also the kind of thing Boulder PD is going to be keeping a spotlight on at the beginning of the year knowing dudes are going to grab dispensary weed and flip it to underage students. CU is a high profile campus for Colorado and is always dealing with the image of being a pot school.
Its move in week and hordes of Freshman guys are walking around right now asking upper classmen for weed and I guarantee dealers are not going to be stoked with their buddies dropping names to every rando freshman they see walking around. As a freshman you really only have easy access to the Hill which is going to be mostly this situation. Chautauqua park is an exception and there are always a bunch of slackliners who are down to smoke and are typically pretty laid back which is why I mentioned them. (Good luck finding the Boulder skate park and even so its all high school kids anyway.) So the best option is to find a way into a social circle of Sophomores or Juniors that can hook you up with a solid connection for the year. The best way to do that is try to get into a house party and make some friends with a little extra cash to get in the door and build respect. Like it or not, that it how the Boulder social scene works you need something to offer to be accepted. That is why I mentioned the ski videos because that is a way to get back into a circle to do something cool and build relationships in general and also get a hookup.
There are always people selling weed outside of dispenseries. Honestly I would rather find somebody off campus anyway than some kid slinging out of a dorm making it sketchy or something. And even then if you can't find a bag of weed when all the other sources are somehow dry, you need to work on your people skills or stop being a sketchy weirdo.
You're making this sketchy right from the start with the whole "he's 18 people can't sell him weed". Is it illegal? Technically, is it sketchy? Fuck no. People have been selling weed before it was legal in CO, and in states where it still isn't and won't be for 10+ years.
You're literally making this simple thing ridiculously complicated. You're not infiltrating a Colombian drug cartel. You're just buying some weed. It's only sketch in your head. I get being a weird 18 year old in a new place away from home. Away from the guy you always bought weed from in high school. But it's really not sketch. People have been blatantly selling or gifting for "donations" over facebook for a long ass time. It's been getting sold on craigslist since the dinosaurs roamed the earth.
You're making this into some sort of reality show. Offering some loot to get into social circles to meet upper classman, and over a few years build up trust to buy something that you could have bought in 5 seconds with minimal effort. Everyone that goes anywhere says "this is how it works at this school" about anything. There are some variances, but most of the stuff like buying a bag of weed is pretty straight forward, and in CO way fucking easier.
I can't think of a time where I've ever seen somebody get carded for buying drugs in my life.
How to get a hookup from weed.
1. Don't be a sketchy weirdo
2. Buy weed from somebody
3. Don't be a sketchy weirdo, don't send unnecessary texts/facebook messages about $$, quantities, or drugs.
4. Buy weed from said person again.
5. Don't be a sketchy weirdo.
6. Continue buying weed from said person and now you got a hookup.
Or go with your plan to audition for a reality show, and maybe if you don't get voted off you'll get enough fans to eventually be able to buy a bag. Because fuck any sort of logic, that's way more fun.
Your plan is shot, it's not hard to find weed. This isn't a "this how it works at my school". This might have been you being a sketchy weirdo or going at it with the wrong approach.
If you're trying to buy it from people living in the dorms, people will likely be a bit more hesitant because living in the dorms. Avoid that shit, avoid infiltrating social circles or whatever just to get weed, go and buy weed.
The people that upvoted this comment need to also stop being sketchy weirdos. I wasn't trying to come off as much of a dick in the first round but sweet baby jesus ya'll are doing it wrong.
