""How well do you know the person who sells you cocaine? Do you trust there's no illegal fentanyl in there?" asks BHDDH in their online ads. "Did you know your drug dealer is vegan?""

Someone explain to me why someone would put fentanyl in cocaine?  I can understand it as a heroin substitute but not in cocaine.

Also I do not understand the "vegan" part, WTF does being a vegan have to do with being a shady (as opposed to reliable) drug supplier?

Pssh! It's all about the small batch artisanal drugs now.

If they were vegan, you would know.

I feel like that ad is telling me I need to get to know my dealer personally so I can know whether or not to trust him? Did I get that right?

Vegan outrage backlash in 3... 2... 1...

The barber in my town got arrested for dealing drugs a couple weeks ago.  I was floored.  I've been his customer for years and I never knew he cut hair.

All I know is that I now want to buy drugs from whoever the fark made the leap from fentanyl to veganism.

We've seen some Olympic-class mental gymnastics politically for a couple years now, but... what the hell?

Vegans are still largely (not universally) insufferably self-righteous twits in my experience, btw.

A: Don't worry, they'll tell you.

Well...

Yes, one of them was a vegan; he is still a vegan but I think he quit dealing pot a few years back.  Another one has gone vegan since he quit dealing too. We've really got to do something about this spread of veganism once they quit selling pot.  MMJ has killed the illegal market down here, so only the big drug dealers are left.

To be honest I knew both of them far better than I know my doctor(s) and a shiat ton more than I know the pharmacist at CVS or the grower at the local dispensary.  If you think government regulations are stopping them from doing anything illegal, (glares at the opioid epidemic) I've got a bridge to Hawaii to sell you.

In my vicarious dealings with dealers, the only thing I really know for certain is that once they know they are exploiting or harming a person with diminished capacity, they dump that customer.  It's quite refreshing to see that they don't give a crap about the prohibition standards and will take their chances in that game, but knowing that felony charges apply when it's shown they enabled a vulnerable person, they straighten right up.  Or maybe, around here, my vindictiveness is more feared, because I have no qualms about working with the authorities to track dealers down that ignore my warnings when it comes to my little addicts.

But as to actually knowing or caring about what they are selling, nope don't care.  Since I don't use what their selling, not my monkey, not my circus.  Caveat emptor.

I don't care about my dealer, but my cocaine better be free-range, gluten-free and organic.

Stupid. If you sell anything harder than weed, you ain't a vegan. You need to test your product and most everything harder than weed kills your appetite. A real drug dealing vegan would quickly shrivel up and die. It just doesn't happen.

Plenty of non-vegan dealers are already skinny as fark. It kinda comes with the territory. There's never been a fat coke or meth dealer.

People still use cocaine? How quaint. Are you sure?

Anyone who wants to get perky in my neighborhood picks up a $20 meth baggie. It might last them a week if they're careful and don't mind not sleeping for a week. They'll be completely wrecked at the end of it but, it's a cheap thrill ride, I guess. Yes, of course all of them are homeless. How did you guess?

No one _ing mixes fentanyl with speed. It's an opiate substitute. They're not similar. You might use both deliberately, if you don't care too much about dying quickly, but no one is going to sell you fake heroin instead of fake cocaine.

There's many layers of ridiculous. Many.

You know, now I think of it, I think I'm gonna ring my drug dealer right now, and clear this vegan rumour up once and for all.
 
2020-07-04 7:59:49 AM  
Whether I know him or not, who the hell else am I going to buy drugs from?  The very second the transaction takes place, he's become a drug dealer I don't know very well.  And then I've gone and forced him into a meatless future.  What have I done?

/I was guilty enough already

My dealer is actually a level 5 vegan. Doesn't sell anything that casts a shadow.

In reality, the ad makes sense, but it's also kind of stupid. You could make the same argument for literally anything made for consumption. "Did you know your McDonalds fry cook beat off to an episode of Muppet Babies last week?" The only thing I'd care about is if he washed his hands before coming to work.

My vegan drug dealer sells me weed that gives me a hardcore case of the munchies.

Hardcore enough where vegan food actually tastes good.

"This campaign does not suggest that any currently illicit substances should be legalized," she added.

It doesn't suggest it, but it makes a good case for it. That's a lot of accidental deaths year after year for a state that size. My only friend whom I know to have died of an overdose, thankfully there haven't been more, died because her junk was tainted with fentanyl. IIRC about 50 people who got a bag from the same batch died in a span of about 72 hours. A regulated marketplace might not have prevented all those people from dying in the long run, but maybe a lot of them, and they definitely wouldn't have all died that weekend.

They have vowed to stop people eating meat. One way or another.

phishrace: There's never been a fat coke or meth dealer.


This is definitely not true. My former bandmate became a coke dealer & heavy user. Over the course of a decade, he went from skinny to huge. We was a very large man when he died from drug-related causes.

I've known a few obese coke-heads. Dangerous combination, btw.

/don't use cocaine

Is that "Hawaii" with two syllables or three?

I won't claim to know anything about the drug using population of RI, but I do wonder, are these ads reaching their target audience? I look at the vegan ad and think that's a really odd question, I'll consider it the next time I go out to eat with my dealer but see no reason to go any deeper.  Something a lot more direct like, "Hey, there's fentanyl in that line your about to do and you'll probably die" might get the message across more clearly.

Wonder what data they used to drive the ad decisions - https://preventoverdoseri.org/emerg​ing​-trends/ just says "Coming soon!"
