The quality of the weed in Rio depends , if you grow your weed its good..
but if you buy in ''favela'' (translate to english Slum;shantytown) can be good or
bad! normally they press the weed mix the leafs with the flowers , and sometimes put ammonia!!
Things were zero tolerance for many years, but we had a change of Government a few weeks ago, and the new policy is one of harm minimisation, which opens the door for mmj, and reduced penalties for small amounts.
Thanks for the advice. I'm quite afraid that I only know what an American hippie and am clueless to what a Brazilian hippie would look like, but I hope I will quickly figure it out! Now I'm going to get high while I can!
