    Sri Lanka?

    Anybody have experience scoring in Sri Lanka? Just looking for a general overview of the scene... prices, potency, police problems?

    Probably going to spend some time at the beach and some time in the mountains, haven't decided where exactly. Suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks.

      I was there last year. Didn't smoke but can give you some information.

      Weed and charas is easily obtained at sea sides, special at surf places. In Arugan Bay there was smell of good imported hash everywhere.

      Weed is outdoor grown and quite low quality from what I heard. Somebody told me that mafia is growing it in jungle and that's around 1m-1,5m tall when cut down.

      I have no idea about the prices.

      You shouldn't have problems with police if you smoke where others are smoking. One more thing, smoking is forbidden in public, even tobacco so keep it privet and everything will be OK.

      That's all information I have, hope something help.

        So, I'm back... I spent some time in the mountains and some time at the beach. Wish I would've had something to smoke in the hills, as it was amazingly beautiful, but didn't acquire anything.

        Ended up buying some herb off a fisherman in Arugam Bay. Bargained down to 3000 rupees for 10 of these newspaper wrapped portions of cannabis. It was typical SE Asian stuff... smells a little like hay, seeded, not well trimmed. The effects were standard too. It did the job, but was nothing memorable.

        The local stoners were talking about KG (Kerala Gold) and imported hash ($100US/tola) as being the good stuff. Didn't get a chance to partake, unfortunately.

            hi mate

            i did a post on sri lanka years back. No the quality was not great. However as i was leaving i was told about one beach hotel at a bay that had the good stuff. Folks were complaining it was to strong.

            Also up at 2000m high town in the mountains that i cant remember the name iwas shown a bag of good looking weed but had no time, was trying to cross the country in a day and to be honest wasnt intersted. Had other shit on my mind like where the fuck is my passport. A few days in each town over 1000 meters and im sure you would score.

            I believe the good stuff is there. From ella in the east all through the high lands the tea tamils must be growing some nice stuff.

            The govt has large plantations in the south for medicinal purposes.

            I will be back. its a great place. There isnt a country on earth that hasnt experienced war. I can live with that. We missed a major bombing in the north of the country by a few hours. Killed a lot of folks. After we left the war started up and the masacres began.

            Its a great place if you love nature and trecking and curry. Good fishing too.

            The lion will always fear the tiger. that was some political graffiti i saw in Kandy. Written in english it stuck with me.

                Will have a search for your original post. Recommend the place for a visit for sure. The place has some brutal history but awesome people and scenery and food.

                Was offered weed almost every day often for free. Seems like it has become a bit more liberal in recent years but as always discretion is advised consider your safety first. I came across some very fresh very uplifting sativa at around 1000 metres above sea level. Unfortunately didn't get to see any of the plants. Spoke to some rasta lads at around the 1900 metre mark who had attempted grows up there but they reckon it isn't as good.

                Had a look at the KG on offer and it looked like shit. The locals who were smoking it seemed nice and stoned though. Hash prices were exorbitant so I didn't bother with that.

                Three words though: go to Ella.

                  Ella oh Ella.

                  The view down to the dusty plain is forever etched in my memory.

                  I only spent a day there each way from ABAY. So beautiful. It had the vibe, i didnt get to see any there though.

                        October is a change over season. I mostly went east coast. Ella previously mentioned has the reverse monsoon from most of SE asia. When South Sri Lanka experiences monsoon Ella and the East coast are dry. When The south is dry, Monsoon rages on the other side of the island. Sri Lanka is quite south. In my basic weather theory it shouldnt cop cyclones like India etc does. PLaces i couldnt visit thanks to the civil war such as Trincomalee are supposed to be absolutely fantastic and you may or may not get weather at that time of the year. In Oz the monsoon is never constant. My friend from cairns is staying with us at the moment, escaping the northern heat. The rain has not hit yet, just the heat. You never know in the tropics. Its always warm, rain is around. Will it bucket all day or shower at night. That my friend is a question i cannot answer.

                              ^It's not quite as cheap as that these days. Things are nowhere near as grim as they were then either though. Intermonsoonal season would probably be a good time to go as the numbers of tourists and prices wont be so high as during the peak times.

                              Pottuvil and Abay seem to have bounced back even though we were there in the east coast low season. The south coast resort towns were thriving despite the travel warnings about the election.
