[quote name='Pierre' post='1420665' date='Dec 28 2006, 03:03 AM']yeah but thats totally irellivent, he sells heroin and does coke[/quote]

negtive, it started with kubis post

[quote name='kubi']What I dont get about this guy is that he didnt do his own shit. Every dealer Ive known does their own shit. I know alot of you smoke out, so have any of you bought from a guy who didnt smoke? That sorta had me call bullshit on this story. I wouldnt trust someone who didnt do their own product. I doubt someone random hoodie decided to give him 200k in powder, just to get rid of it. I dont think what was written was real. Sounds like an amazing screenplay, not some kid's flashback.[/quote]

and my comment went with that, and then 2 people misinterpreted what i left, so i was explaining it, and is thus relevant

[quote name='Chris McCracken' post='1422505' date='Dec 29 2006, 06:38 AM']He sold heroin and then got connected with the other dealer; the other dealer then hooked him up with cocaine while he finished selling the rest of the heroin. So he sold both.[/quote]

He sold heroin. Which is why I posted what I did. I would not buy ANY drug off a dealer who didnt use that drug. He used coke on the side, he didnt sell it. He was pushing heroin, but never used it. Thats why I called bullshit.

Download I'm Waiting For The Man by The Velvet Underground, and then reread the first and last paragraphs.

People that don't smoke usually make out better (money-wise) than people that do because they aren't cutting into their profit for headsmoke. I know a few kids that sell that don't smoke at all. They're just in it for the money. I read this story, I loved it too.

Based on the description of the heroin addicts of this story, do you really think any of them were competent to sell it? Not that I do heroin, but I'd trust a guy that DIDN'T do it a hell of a lot more than one who did.
