mbillips: So dope is worth @ $1,000 a pound? If true, that's a handy metric.
algrant33: mbillips: So dope is worth @ $1,000 a pound? If true, that's a handy metric.And $62.50 an ounce...A paltry $7.75 an 8th? Wow. For once cop math comes in under.

For once cop math comes in under.You have to consider the differences in wholesale and retail prices. $16.50 a quarter is cheap even for Mexican brick weed, but $1000 a pound for Mexican brick weed sounds way overpriced. I'm actually very curious as to what 2700 pounds of Mexican brick weed would cost if you bought it all at once - purely out of intellectual curiosity. I'm sure it's nowhere near $2.7 million.As an aside, I watched a "documentary" about Frank Matthews the other day. He was a bog heroin dealer on the east cost in the early '70s and they kept mentioning dollar figures and saying what that would be worth today. So I pulled up an inflation calculator and while very impressive, the numbers weren't as high as the documentary said they were.Sensationalization like brings everything into question. The documentary claimed that the place where the heroin was cut before being packaged for street sale had a half a kilo just in residue on the floor.Yeah, right.
studebaker hoch: That's some oddly packaged marijuana.Can't tell from here, but it looks more like hash or smack./ I'm going to have to try some to be sure.
blacksho89: Damn. People still buy that shiat? I mean, when I was in HS, yeah, but that was 70s-80s. Not since then.I pay $22.50 an eighth for bud, $3 for bombers made with shake. If my caregiver doesn't toss a couple in gratis./ why, yes, I DO live in Colorado.// level 5 smug alert
