if caught you will be escorted out, after that they may just steal your kidneys

Smoking weed at Coachella is as easy as smoking cigarettes.

thats not advice id give to anybody i liked. there are undercover police present every year. every year many people go to jail. and many get away with it. the end.

...the cops and security people were annoying last year during before and daft punk. I would rather get rid of the cops and not the concert goers.

Not really. I saw a few people getting escorted out last year by Police after getting fingered by undercover cops.

Chances are you can get away with it...but do you really want to be one of the few that gets caught?

Haven't tried anything, have you? I don't smoke pot, but there are some things that definitely enhance the experience to a mind-blowing, incredible level. People enjoy their drugs. We can enjoy music without it, but drugs can bring it up to the next level.

I have to agree with you there. Some may call it a personality fault, but some of the most incredible experiences of my life have been with Entheogens...and no, I don't smoke weed.

I can not agree more man. I can see how people would want to smoke weed at a concert to enhance the experience. But just like you, I myself don't smoke weed. It just makes me too tired, and it makes me self conscious for some reason. But I wouldn't mind dropping a few hits of acid. Some of the best musical experiences I have had I was on hallucinagens.

I personally would love to drop a hit or two of acid, and take a single bar to keep me mellow. Or even better, a few hits of acid and a hit or two of e; I guess that is called candyflipping. I would much rather do that than smoke weed.

But I don't need to do that to enjoy the music, but I guarantee you it would enhance it to the nth degree! (with n being a positive integer greater than one - god I am a nerd!)

It's all about personal preference and what makes YOU feel good about where you are and the environment around you. I couldn't score any good buds the first day of bonnaroo last year and really feel like something was missing when I watched Tom Petty ... however, I found some before Radiohead and they pretty much melted my face clean off! ... like I said its all about what makes YOU enjoy yourself...

I am actually a little bit jealous of those of you that can enjoy the experience without a "little something extra" ... you are truly a higher evolved people :)

That said, I assume Coachella, like any other concert/festival, that if you want to smoke and are not blatantly, stupidly obvious about it, that you will be pretty safe.

Yes. Next question.

Truthfully have had "friends" bring some in and smoke the past 3 years. Just be careful and you should be okay. Probably best to be in the middle of a crowd like the Mojave tent. I've read stories on here about people being busted, but I have never seen it happen.

do you really have to be high to enjoy yourself?

Yes I do. Music is so much better high. Of course, I'm a major stoner so anything is better high.

Last year I saw many people just chillin' out in the lawn smoking. But, yeah be careful. Like someone said before, try to be in the middle of the crown if you plan to smoke, I also saw a lot of people mix it in with their cigs and smoked it that way.

just bring your own man, that's the best advice i can give you.

why risk getting caught buying, or risk that the person you are buying from will get caught selling? plus, do you really want to spend your time looking for a drug dealer?

again, bring your own. don't buy. don't sell.

A GOOD PLACE TO ASK THE QUESTION IS ON THE FESTIVALS OFFICIAL MESSAGE BOARD

Kampy
01-25-2007, 05:43 PM
from my experience, Coachella doesn't seem to be quite as "open" as, say, Bonnaroo. There is no "shakedown street" or unofficial "marketplace" or anything like that at Coachella.

A lot of people get away with smoking at Coachella, but... people DO get busted. On the night Andy Dick got arrested, so did 28 others! Read about it here: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0511042dick1.html

fober why are you posting that on every message board? why can't ppl ask on this?

Here's the logic:

Someone asks what a good method of doing something illegal is.
Some idiot responds with the little known method that works.
Everybody at Coachella knows about it, including security BECAUSE THEYRE POSTING IT ON THE OFFICIAL MESSAGE BOARD.

durrrrrrrrdee
01-25-2007, 05:49 PM
why is it every year on this board there are posts that have to involve drugs?

if you need to do them, do them but dont talk about it in the open on a message board. drugs are against the law right? so why ask if you can do them, the consequences are the same everywhere, they dont change just because youre at a festival. use your head, if you do it take the same precautions you would take anywhere else and just watch yourself. there are TONS of undercovers at the venue and even outside the venue and every year it seems as more authorities are present. last year before i even got thru the entrance i saw 2 people outside caught and 3 escorted out.


if youre going to smoke i suggest in the middle of a crowd and still try to play safe as some people get upset about it. ive smoked at some point each year and ive never been caught, but im not waving it around either.

ps. whoever said brownies....GOOD THINKING!!

I haven't been sine 2004, but remember the undercover cops going around asking folks if they knew where to get a joint or some E? I think I'll avoid that.

Didnt Andy Dick get arrested one year for smoking weed at Coachella? I have a constant fog going on when I am at Coachella... just dont do it where everyone can see... The plastic porta potties are always a great place to smoke at Coachella.

Maybe I've just been really naive and/or drunk the past three years when i've gone, but I cannot recall seeing any "undercover" cops at all. I remember seeing cops strolling around in twos or threes, meandering around the festival, but none of this undercover business. If I were to make any recomendations however, it would be most certainly to bring your own greenery. I toked off some random dudes joint during the arcade fire set a couple years ago and nearly went into a full blown panick attack :eek: because the guy didn't tell me it was laced. I had to lay down on a grassy knoll near the entrance of the festival trying to decipher what I had just smoked, barely hearing New Orders set from the main stage. so yeah. bring your own, lol.

Hey--I saw somebody in the middle of the crowd at outdoor stage get escorted out.I don't think it is worth the chance at having to leave the festival! But then I am not a partaker.

i was asked by what appeared to be an undercover popo if i had any E to sell last year. its was very obvious and strange. im a mormon ffs. and thats entrapment. drugs r bad :mad:

We hot boxed the Heinekin tent last year cuz it was comfortable and cool.....plus we chugged a fifth of Jack before entering the show. Probably one of the dumber things I have done, but we didn't get in trouble. A guy from the entrance worked his way over and as he did we ditched the roach and lit a cigarette, everyone knew what was going on and scavanged for hits, we were nervous but he just said no smoking and left it at that. During shows it's extremely easy to get away with, just be smart and keep a look out, if anything happens just chuck all paraphenelia as far as you can and run. through the crowd like mad. Should be fine, never had any trouble.

I smoked weed like cigarettes there... never had a problem, been there in '05 and '06 (both those years had cops)... I guess just don't be dumb! Its ez! Enjoy yourself.

We had no problems last year, you basically got to use the same rules as we do here in Seattle (where it's been considered 'legal' for all intensive purposes, except if you flaunt it in front of cops).
We smoked the entire weekend, no issues. Just keep an eye out for staffers. They don't care really, I saw people getting kicked out for being drunk and abusive, not for lighting up. HOLY COW, you should have seen the cloud of smoke above Damien Marley last year, it was definitely a 'go in the middle and get a contact high!' :)
Oh, and same thing with Tool. what an amazing experience!!!
Only thing I would suggest is joints, or rolled in cigs.

fortydollarsworthofmeat

intensive purposes. this means that if you really, really want to smoke pot and you put a lot of effort into it, then it's legal in seattle.

i smoked a joint last year during sigur ros, so i wouldn't worry about it. you just might want to take it easy during the day.

Buying pot at Coachella is not recommended. First year I went I resorted to making a sign to score. Thats how stingy everybody was. When I finally found some it was mediocre crap. I thought Cali was know for nuggets. Not at this festival. Bring yr own & smoke it sparingly it will go quick! As for other drugs I did not attempt to buy any but if you can't get any doobage I can only imagine what its like to find anything else. If your flying & meeting up with someone who lives out there see if they can score for you ahead of time. As for smoking you gotta smoke during the shows. Get right up in the middle with everyone. Don't smoke out in the open. No matter where you think you are this is the U.S. & its illegal unfortunatley.

First of all, you shouldn't be able to "see" an undercover cop. Thats why they are called "undercover".

Second, I highly doubt you smoked "laced" weed. HAHA. Laced. Thats what D.A.R.E. officers used to lie to kids about. In all likely hood, you either smoked while you were too drunk, or the weed you smoked was a lot better than you are used to. It's southern Cali, afterall.

One thing that is special about Coachella is that I have seen people do all sorts of drugs in the festival area and I have never heard of anybody over doing it and seriously hurting themselves i.e. (overdosing). As long as you know what to expect from the drugs your taking and you can handle being "high" around 50,000 people... then your kool. But as far as smoking "bud" at the campground, parking lot, or in the festival grounds, I have never had a problem as long as you are being discreet about it.

I'm guessing for most people being sober in the festival would be more enertaining than being high in the parking lot - but I could be talking crazy.

its weird, every time im at coachella i barely ever smell weed. i mean, i do, but not nearly as much as one would expect. its usually not in the crowd but rather under the shade tents.

01-29-2007, 07:30 PM
you can smell weed from miles away. just shoot speedballs instead. try injecting between your toes so no one sees the trackmarks.
