Cheaper than the dilaudid the hospital was injecting into everyone. Classic case of big business manipulating the system to shaft the little guy.

He probably had a very dedicated clientele, as well.

Have you Seen a hospital bill recently? It's enough to make Mr. Rogers want to deal.

Just another Heartland Weirdass: Cheaper than the dilaudid the hospital was injecting into everyone. Classic case of big business manipulating the system to shaft the little guy.


When I was in the hospital with Spinal Meningitis that made it to my brain, dilaudid was my drug of choice. None of the other pain killers would even come close to managing the pain.  I would have sold my grandmother into slavery to get away from that pain. (OK, not really but it was amazing the relief it gave me.)

I can see why she was dealing.  My bill was over $500K due to the severity of my infection.

Something about the Cop Math in the article doesn't add up.

1) Informant buys 30 doses for $90 --> $3/dose

2) Cops seize 342 doses and claim a value of $3800 --> $11.11/dose

I wonder how they determine how much to inflate the value of the drugs they seize when reporting it to the media.

After no longer needing it, I handed in my dilauded to the local police to burn they asked me if I knew how much the pint size bottle of if I had was worth? It was a couple hundred easy. I asked for it back... They didn't laugh. Stupid me.

30 bags for $90? That's a bargain! They should give her a metal!

No one is as dedicated to their cause as a junkie is to their heroin.

A steady stream of visitors to his grave would get him busted.

I was wondering the same. This is the only logical answer I could come up with.

If she was selling 30 bags for $90, she was high up on the dealing ladder or the customer was just taking advantage of her being high.  If she was really high up, she knows who the snitch is and it sucks to be the snitch.  My guess is that the snitch only had $90 and was probably fronted the rest, and had done this before.  I believe it was mentioned that the person previously made purchases from the seller.

I am guessing the cop math was not far off, and what she was really selling it for on the street and the $90 was only a small % of the selling price.  $90 and promise to pay the remainder of the 30bags = 3800 (which was rounded to the nearest $100).  Perhaps $90 a bundle, or 10 bags, and she had to pay a higher fee for the remaining fronted  20 bags.

Me too. Complete exoneration for this gal, bonus points for self sufficiency.

If you really cared, you'd have reverse-GIS'd the image yourself, but yes, that' him.

I really just wanted to have a powwow about how awesome Peter Stormare is, and I was using a classic conversation device to accomplish that, but if you don't want to, that's cool too.
