This is the forum for those who believe that there are other options to gangs and violence and hope to see young people make better choices about their future. Where does change begin?

Cocaine now cheaper than a cappuccino (in the UK)

Unread post by Jakk » September 29th, 2005, 7:21 am

Researchers found there were regional disparities in the cost of drugs. Cocaine, for example, is dearest in East Anglia, at £47 a gram, and cheapest in the north-east, at £39. Increasingly, users are paying under £40. Users can eke out up to 20 lines - each one giving a feeling of self-confidence and alertness for around 20 minutes - from one gram. This equates to about £2.25 a line, cheaper than a cappuccino in many cafes. Addicts, however, often split a gram into just five lines.

well im in middlesbrough right now and can get a gram of cocaine here for £30 but you can get it here for as little as £25.

great way to make money because where i live down south the cheapest gram you can buy is £50.

only difference is the cocaine down south is usually better than the cocaine up in the north east.

£25 is US$45

£50 is US$90

Its NOT about the quality of it ti about the Quontaty of it

In Frome Cocaine Costs
A rap of coke is £6.50=$11 in the South West
A Gram is £39=$68 in the South west

In Frome Heroin Costs
a hit cost about £4.50=.00+=$7.95
A Gram costs about £30=$53.00

I think the port authorties should have more people employed to slow down the amount coming in so the price goes back up same with Heroin

Coke in our communities is like a cancer - I hate what it does to people - just burns a hole in peeps noses, wallets and personalities - hate the BS talk 'lets talk about me!', people talking over each other then claiming they are having a conversation while talking at the same time! And of course, washing coke into crack - crack mashes up my neighbourhood - the biggest generator for violence, mayhem and community breakdown - cokes a demons drug of choice.

the two options are legalize it and have mayhem for a few years as people get used to it - or life imprisonment for first time offenders

which do you prefer
