How to Spot Online Marijuana Scammers



“Quality kush for sale.” “We do overnight shipping and very discrete.” “Best strains of high-quality medicinal at moderate prices.”

You’ve seen the posts on Facebook, Twitter, and your favorite websites, and some of you have probably even contacted some of these spammers. As a result of some messages we’ve been receiving questioning the authenticity of buying marijuana online (come on people, really?!), it seemed to us that it would be the perfect time to address this epidemic. The absurdity of these online scammers can be summed up in one of our recent interactions:

1. First, we downloaded Burner (disposable phone number app)
2. Next, we texted many said dealers until we could arrange a conversation
3. Here is the ensuing conversation:

HT: We’re doing a piece about buying pot online for our readers. You seem to be trying to sell marijuana online. Can you elaborate?

Anonymous: Yes, we have new strains available all the time: OG Kush, AK47, Sour Diesel, Skywalker OG. We provide safe and discreet packaging we put our stuff inside a Turkey double bag vacuum seal before shipment, packaging is 100% safe and secure with a discreet shipping and delivery.

HT: Are you a cop?

Anonymous: No.

HT: Are you sure?

Anonymous: Yes.

HT: I’ve heard you also sell “juvial Yorkie pups.”

Anonymous: Who told you that?

HT: A Google search of your phone number. Also “exotic cats.”

Anonymous: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

HT: Okay, thanks for your time.

There are more horror stories from people online other than this that count into the millions who have, unwittingly, put their trust into companies that end up scamming them.

Even if a potential marijuana seller says that they’re not a cop, it is perfectly legal for cops to lie to you and tell you they’re not a cop. If they have probable cause that you are going to do something illegal, they are well within their rights to not be truthful.

There are so many scammers online who will trick people into buying their “legitimate” cannabis product, that it’s hard to keep up with all of them.

We created a list below that will point out many, though not all, of the scammers who selling marijuana online. This is not an exhaustive list. If you know of any marijuana scammers that we haven’t covered here, please list them in the comments below. We will be continuing to update the list as more scammers are brought to our attention.

6 ways to find out if cannabis businesses are legit

Find out everything you can about the business by:

  1. Make sure you know who the owner is by reading their Whois record online. Google it.
  2. Reviews: any website that touts selling cannabis products, make sure their website and social media accounts have a fair amount of positive reviews.
  3. Don’t just send them a chat or an email. Speak to someone at the company. If they sound unprofessional or you feel at all uncomfortable, don’t buy from them. There are plenty legit businesses that sell legal cannabis products online.
  4. Reach out to reviewers on their website if possible and ask questions; people love to give their opinion about things, so take advantage of this opportunity.
  5. Check Ripoff Report online and find out if the business you’re dealing with has good business practices or not. Also, go to the Better Business Beaureu and see what rating, if at all, the company has on file with them.
  6. If it sounds too good to be true, it definitely (not probably) is and that’s your cue to move on.

There are currently as of February 25, 2018, 154 Found Reports on Ripoff Report.com of companies in the marijuana industry that have been reported for various scams, so it essential that you arm yourself and become aware of the shysters out there on and offline and do your due diligence to make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
