Chefchaouen is a mountain town in northern Morocco.
It is popular among American and European drug tourists, who often drive rented cars and pick up hitchhikers. Moroccan drivers are understandably nervous about picking up foreigners with cannabis, so out of respect for them you should leave any cannabis products in Chefchaouen.
South to Ouezzane
From the city centre, e.g. exiting the medina from the Bab el Ain gate, find the sign indicating the directions Rabat and Fes. Walk down that road for one or two kilometres. From any point outside the city centre you can hitchhike to the roundabout where the road splits towards Ouezzane. There is a police checkpoint here where traffic slows, making it an ideal point to get a ride straight on to Ouezzane.
This direction is ideal also for Fes, though you may need to hitch on from Ouezzane or the truck-stop village Jorf.
