I was recently woken up in the middle of the night by my neighbor who had apparently drank too much and started throwing up everywhere. At this point, it seems like the standard "I drank too much sickness" and so I waited for him to finish up and go back inside. The sick guy, however, insist that he is dying and so decides to call a guy for a cocaine drop off because it is a "life or death" situation. Now that he sort of has my attention as I move from being pissed to laughing at him for getting so dramatic, he shouts over the phone that he will give the dealer fifty for a G. Now, I am assuming that he means grams, $50 for a gram.

This just seems interesting to me because in the novel American Psycho, cocaine cost them about the same price but the book takes place in the late '80s to early '90s.

So, just out of curiosity, I was wondering how much a gram of cocaine cost these days.

$45-60/g depending on who you know, and how much you're buying


I only know this because my fish buys cocaine often

well, Patrick Bateman was buying the cream of the cream



which could be as much as 75 or so for a single gram these days depending on a lot of things, including your location. I believe you are located in texas, right? stuff will be cheaper there than remote cities.



like a lot of things, drugs are always cheaper if you buy in bulk. your neighbor was probably pissed at middle of the night inflation, where the dealer has probably sold most of his stock for the evening and would be cutting into his own supply to hook it up.

[Edited on January 28, 2009 at 10:48 PM. Reason : probably cut to hell by that point too]

^ yeah that is pretty much spot on.

It was just weird how the guy was so desperate for cocaine after throwing up some. It wasn't like he was really gonna croak.

I hope that this thread does not get anyone in trouble.

I mean, I was wondering if it is cheap enough for me to buy.

I come home from work, and dakota_man and my fish are still asleep. Around 10pm, they wake up, and blast music all night long. This shit sucks, B.

It's time for an intervention.

Next time just teach him how to freebase caffeine.
(I honestly have no idea if this works; just drink like 9 Red Bulls instead.)

your neighbor thought the best way to cure alcohol poisoning was to get white line fever? He sounds like he's destined to become a statistic very soon.

Many drug prices are more or less constant, even over years and years.

What varies is the quality and purity.

One of my private students (unbelievably rich) does coke regularly. He told me the price:

$267/gram

Used to be just

$80/gram

just a couple of months ago.

Oh, and he buys 10 grams a time. I think, a couple of times a month.

marijuana - $50 for 3.5 grams (3 grams or less in big cities)

heroin - as low as $5 a hit

LSD - $5-10 a hit

mushrooms - $20 a gram

Oh, are you open?

I'll have 7 grams of marijuana, and 1 gram of mushrooms. (Separate bags, please...)

paper or plastic?

cash or credit?

thank you, drive through



P.S. - Police man, I don't sell drugs or purchase drugs but I do know the prices because I like to watch for when drug enforcement agencies over state the values of their busts to justify their existence.

$20 a gram for mushrooms? that'd put you at $70 for what's universally considered a single dose

[Edited on January 29, 2009 at 9:04 AM. Reason : someone I know thinks $25-$35 for 3.5 grams is a more realistic price ]

^It's kinda like weed, quality is everything.

Crappy weed can be as low as $50/ounce, but the good stuff is more in line to $10-25/gram.

Also with the shrooms you have dry and wet weights. When it dries it could lose 50% or more of the weight.

(From what I hear.)

it's more like 85-90% of the wet weight. there aren't really any controllable factors that influence the potency -- possibly the addition of psilocybin precursors into the substrate, but this is a questionable and relatively unknown technique -- nor is there any way to objectively determine the potency without resorting to like gas chromotagraphy

fresh wet mushrooms are the only way to insure elevated potency, and even then you have something like 48 hours before the more potent psilocin oxidizes into inactives

you wouldn't catch my goldfish paying $20/gram for fungus, and he's something of a connisseur of fine psychedelics

good weed is closer to 20 a gram, moderate weed about 10 to 15 and shitty weed about 4 dollars a gram
