In Beijing it is very easy to buy hash. If you don't know anyone, the best thing to do is to go to the Sanlitun bar area, either the bar street itself or to the area in front of the KFC west of Sanlitun Bar Street, opposite the City Hotel. Most of the merchants are West African guys who hang around that area.
A more recent report we have is :Beijing is a rapidly changing city. I have not found anything in the Haidian district, but in the Sunlitan district you can still find hash. Just look for the street vendors selling pipes and rolling papers and say 'Hash'. More likely then not they have a small amount available for sale. Prices are around 25$ for 1.5-2 grams. People are nice and better deals can be made.
Another reporter added: "Probably one of the most easiest things to do in Beijing other than by fake DVDs. Although sometimes difficult to trust, the dealers are usually quite friendly and hang around the main hot spots of Beijing. The San Li Tun road is quite a popular hang out, and that is where you find most of the guys. They are not difficult to spot because they are never inside, they are usually just walking around on the side of the road and quick eye contact will easily get there attention. A quick "Yo Wassup" and "You want some shit?" will be all that is heard before you are holding some of your very own sticky. The better contacts can be found through phone numbers. Make pot smoking friends!"
"Although there have been some recent laws brought up to protect the city from its drug slingers, the world of a pot smoker is quite relaxed and relatively "legal" in the city of Beijing. Every once and a while you hear of a certain someone getting messed over by the police but you probably would if you smoked up in the police headquarters. Recently reading the news there have been reports of high rewards given for snitches however this mainly relates more to locals then anyone else. Foreigners are usually left well alone, again, unless they do something stupid. "
and also: "in Sanlitun cop are patrolling like crazy and because of the Olympics they're trying to catch the pot dealers so look around b4 u buy "
and: "The cops have recently swept the city clean of most of its Africa drug dealers. Most of the stuff about asking the first west African you see is correct but their stuff is what is known as soap bar, which is impure hash.
Marijuana is illegal in China, and so is any related action. Since Cannabis is quite a big industry in China (cloth making, rope making etc.), cannabis cultivation is legal.
Although the demand for hash has stayed quite high and steady, there have been recent developments regarding the availability of weed (grass) in Beijing. A lot of the African dealers, who ultimately build up a huge chunk of the drug dealers in Beijing, say that their weed comes from overseas however this is usually not the case. The “African-weed”, honestly speaking, is quite terrible while some rare sources of weed from non-African dealers are a lot better. It may or may not be from the US (or other international countries) but it’s just better. If you are lucky and get your contacts together there should be some good green, maybe a little orange-haired, weed available to you at a pricey but somewhat reasonable price.
Hash is the drug of choice here in Beijing and the rare Weed which is found is not worth the high prices. If someone offers you weed i would advice to reject.
