Do dispensaries sell gift certificates? If not, they really should.

That chick doesn't look like a model.  Anyway, if I knew we could get models for Christmas, I would have asked Santa for a Kate Upton.

Fortunately the Bush tax refund I got in college wasn't in gift card form, I was able to deposit it directly to my coke dealer at the time.

These featured posts are so consistent it almost makes me think that the joke got out before Gawker was able to be the finger-wagger-in-the-sky that they so like to be. Not to imply that teenagers, college kids, and 20-something drug addicts don't say dumb things on twitter, mind you, but I think the joke is on Gawker.

Allow me to reserve judgment, since I buy alcohol and not just because I like the finer notes of hops and oak aging and medium-bodied-ness.

There are websites that you can sell your gift cards to to get cash for (slightly less than) what they're worth.

So uh, yeah you can buy drugs with them.

Maybe they are all poorly worded tweets about Walgreens not letting you use a Visa gift card to buy Nyquil?

It is so easy to trade a gift card for drugs.

Not that I would know.

If you're that into drugs, just ask for drugs for Xmas. Someone will probably oblige.

...what?

what irks me about some of their articles is that they are just a compilation of tweets.

I mean, that's the story? people suck? ya we knew that. it's just lazy "writing"

I've seen shady used car lots that have a "we buy gift cards" sign. Can probably get drugs there too.

Not only is it impersonal but then you feel more like crap when you spend it on junk then if you were to use it pay bills. So now my present is wasted on reminding me how much I'm in debt.

Here in NJ they are trying to pass legislation so any unused balance on any sort of gift card is turned over to the state after some number of years.

I cannot believe that they can get away with that. So, what I do is track the balance on my gift cards right to the last penny, then mail the state my used up card.

In any case, you may not be able to by drugs with the card, but you can still use it for chopping if you feel so inclined.

//Not that I would know.

If only the cards had some 800 number you could use to verify how much credit was remaining.

Yeah, that's what drug dealers do. They spend time calling the 800 number on the back of your funky ass gift card to make sure you're not lying to them about the balance.

That, or they tell your broke ass to get the fark off of the block and don't come back until you've got your money right.

I love it, I was trying to purchase weed from a gentleman who promised me the weed would be in the trash can in 30 minutes.  I smiled politely and said, now I have a problem with this here, I'd really like to have it handed over to me, there's no one around.  Let me guess, you don't have any weed?  walks away*
 
2012-12-27 03:46:46 PM
Any junkie that can't figure out how to cash out a gift card had maybe better think about getting clean. It's like the lady who tried to sell me some of her EBT balance and cursed me when I suggested that she a) hang out closer to the supermarket and b) not hit up people that were walking away from the store with bags of food. Sorry, baby, if you want to buy a rock or two without getting scabs on your knees you'd better come up with a better grift.

Headline is misleading. Typically a drug dealer is willing to work out some kind of a deal, or is willing to take currency in the form of trade. Some however might be more reluctant than others, you may have to get down on your knees and beg them to accept a different type of payment than cash. You never know until you try.

Back when the gift card boom started, I made it clear to my family that if I had to pick my own gifts, that I would rather take the cash. This year I was able to both buy drugs and pay bills.
