Cambodia, Siem Reap Guide (B): Getting Weed in Siem Reap

I asked where a traveler might get weed in Siem Reap, and to my surprise, the answer is really easily and safely.

Make no mistake about it. Smoking marijuana is illegal in Cambodia. If you do it publicly, you’re liable to get stopped by police, and probably be charged a hefty fine.
