So, $100 a pill according to the police.

Riiiiiight.
 
2010-03-27 01:29:17 PM  
So these things cost $100 on the street? Im no pillhead but that seems pretty steep.
 
2010-03-27 01:29:35 PM  
Not saying that $100/pill is right, but where can subby get 1,000 prescription pills of oxycodone and alprazolam for 25-cents each?
 
2010-03-27 01:32:13 PM  
@ a street value of $20 ea for the oxy, that makes 11.8K
which makes this weed cost nearly $4K a gram. Must be some mighty fine ganga....
 
2010-03-27 01:32:29 PM  
in cop math with drugs would 250 dollars be just a photograph of the drug?
 
2010-03-27 01:32:37 PM  
Supposing a prescription of Oxycodone was $15 a pill(Google claims that's regular cost), that's $8850 right there. Google tells me it can be double that. So maybe $16k.

Alprazolam could be $5 per pill (again Google) so that's another $2k.

I could see it being a $20k stash.

However, almost a thousand pills in your underwear? How do you fit that? That's a lot of pills.

the xanex can be 5 bucks a pill... more likely 3 if they are the 2mg ladders.

The oxy can go pretty high for the 80mgs... $20,30,40 and up. This ridiculous police valuation is not as ridiculous as other ridiulous police valuations I''ve seen.

$100 a pill? I'm in the wrong business - time to visit grampy again
 
2010-03-27 01:35:42 PM  
Oxycodone goes for about 50 a pill. Alprozolam (xanax) goes for about 3 to 5 a pill. I did the math and I think it would be worth about $25,000.

I'm estimating, because I've heard (from my junkie brother) that the Oxy can go for as much as $80. But even a high estimate of $100 per pill it would still be under $60,000.

I broke my arm in december, completely snapped my right humerus right above my elbow while arm wrestling. Required 5 hours of surgery, 1 titanium plate and 13 titanium screws.

I was getting 100 oxycodones for $5 through insurance, that's 5 cents a pill.

Note to readers: Oxycodone does not equal Oxycontin. While Oxycontin 80mg pills average $40-$60, Oxycodone is a mixture of (for the big pills) around 10mg of Oxycontin and a shiatload of aspirin, making abuse muy bad for your liver. These pills probably wouldn't go for more than $10-$15 a piece, tops.

I used to do oxys, and my dealer went through so many. He would sell 80 mg pills for 40$-80$, depending on how high the supply was. When supplies dwindle, fiends will pay way more. I don't think this guy had 100,000$ in pills, he didn't have 250$ either. Probably a around ten thousand.

I get boxes of Lidocaine patches for my arthritis. I pay 10 bucks a box as a co-pay. Each patch costs me pennies. I read that the Mexicans gardeners down at the train station pay 20 bucks a patch on the black market (that's so Orson Welles).

I guess all that lawn work hurts. I could be making a small fortune selling these things one at a time (not withstanding the fact that I actually need them). Does that mean that each box is really worth a thousand dollars? I don't think so.

Cops have small penises, which is one of the reasons they became cops. They need to report huge dollar amounts in drug busts to feel good about themselves.

I doubt they need small penises to exaggerate the importance of their work.
otherwise we're all below average which is mathematically impossible

actually, oxycodone is the active ingredient in oxycontin, percocet, and percodan. The oxycodone pills you refer to with the "aspirin" (actually acetominiphin) are just generic percs. oxycontin has only oxycodone as the active ingredient, embedded in a time-release matrix. southeast texas averages are $40-50 street price for 80 mg.

Actually, Oxycodone does equal Oxycontin. Oxycontin is just a brand name of a time release oxycodone, but people who abuse the drug strip the coating off the pill and snort/shoot it, therefore eliminating the time release mechanism and getting all the dose in one quick blast.

Oxycodone is the ingredient in Oxycontin. No aspirin in Oxycontin. There are combination pills that do include oxycodone coupled with ibuprofen/aspirin/etc, but they go under names like Percocet, Percidan, etc. Oxycontin is not one of them.

You're right, I misread. Oxycodone is about $10. So 597 pills would be $5970. So this guy had pills totaling a street value of about $7,000 to $8,000.

Although very often the reporters and cops get it mixed up, too.

Yes, they are about a thousand. Now do you see why so many people with scripts sell them? It can be very tempting, if you can stand the pain. You could go down to the train station, make contact with one of the Mexicans who speak English, sell them to him and let him resell. It would minimize your risk. Also he wouldn't risk robbing you because you could set him up with a steady supply.

I have a hard time believing that anyone would pay more than a buck or so for lidocaine patches. You can buy a kilo of it pretty cheap like any other mass-produced chemical. It's not a street drug.

They called a "pill sniffing dog". And after the pill dog alerted on every other single freaking person in America on the way, it alerted on him too. So they searched him.

We take a lot of pills, we do.

they don't need his consent to pat him down after a traffic stop... they do to search the car outside of what he can reach... back seat, trunk. but they can search him "for weapons" if the saw him commit an offense and are issuing a ticket (making him effectively "in custody" for the duration of the stop)
 
2010-03-27 04:07:29 PM  
The generics of these pills cost around $.15 cents/ea, so $250 isn't actually that far off. What's scary is that the markup is 40,000% if the police are to be believed.

I think they need reasonable suspicion that he is armed before patting him down, since he is not actually being taken into custody. TFA says he agreed to the search.
 
2010-03-27 04:10:40 PM  
Assuming they were pure oxycodone (no aceteminophen or other additives) that would be oxycontin. I've actually seen some local addicts in my town pay $100 for an oxycontin 80mg.

rarely do I admit this... you're right.

scotus tweaked the rules in 2009. the old terry stop rules are out the window and they now need reasonable suspicion to search for something not primary to the crime (can search for alcohol during dui stop but not during speeding stop)

of course we all know that an officer self reporting after the fact can always say he saw the suspect make a furtive movement or saw a strange bulge.

I think the drug valuations must be done by the same Wall Street people who gave AAA ratings to bundles of subprime mortgages. Or else by nurses in hospitals -- an aspirin in a hospital is about $100, right? (But of course, that's fair market value and the governemnt shouldn't be involved.)
 
2010-03-27 05:53:42 PM  
There's only one drug effective enough to fir that much value into underpants even without a man wearing them, and that's acid.

If you carry acid in your underpants, you better not get nervous and sweawt.
