The One-Man Drug Company

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I first came across this article a while ago, but the contents remain fresh in my mind. This is one story that you’ll want to read all the way though. The One-Man Drug Company profiles a young white coke dealer as he makes a living (about $5000 a week, tax free) the hard way in Manhattan.

From the article:

Every day he tells himself the same thing. You are doing nothing wrong. It plays through his mind on repeat, keeping his nerves in check. You have no reason to worry. Tonight, a Friday, he is walking down a cobblestone street in Soho, hands wedged in his leather jacket, his posture slump-shouldered, as if he’s curling in on himself.

The smaller ones he calls “chiquitas.” They cost $60. The big ones, known simply as “big ones,” go for $100. He is heading to see a customer, a twiggy, doe-eyed woman who asked to meet outside an art gallery. He thumbs through the Baggies, able to gauge the weight with his fingertips, and secures her order in his fist, all the while humming along to the voice in his head.

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

My experience with vaporizing cannabis goes all the way back to when I started using it in the first place. I had a crude lightbulb vape—kinda like this one here:

but slightly more advanced with vinyl tubing and a water filtration chamber. After a couple months of regular smoking with the lightbulb device, I decided that a convection-style vaporizer was needed. (more…)

This is insane. My mind is blown. A huge portion of humanity is still stuck in the dark ages. Where some of us make progress, others step backward, trip and fall. Leave your comments on this disgraceful violation of human rights.
