The article makes a big deal about how much it would be worth. It's like they're jealous that the kid got such a good haul.
i visited Riverside California once, the "meth capital" of the US (might have changed by now?), yes with the intention of scoring an 8-ball (i was 19). i was hanging out with this real winner goth-punk dude, and maybe it was the parties he took me to, but it seemed like literally EVERYONE was on the stuff. and their parents, who you assume were functioning members of society because they all lived in giant posh homes, were on it too, many for 10 - 20 years - nothing less than a lifestyle. long story short i scored my 8-ball for a measely $200 and drove to Dallas and sold it all in 1 weekend for about... $1200 i think it was. and people were coming up to me the next week asking if i had any more because it was several grades higher than the shit they used to get. (this was about the last of my crazy days)
there was a neat article i read a few years ago about this new breed of much more pure and much more expensive stuff sold in the form of little angel or virgin mary statues that was becoming very popular with global party people... couldn't find anything craze may have died.
i used to prefer it to coke but last time got high was in 2001 and would not do it again. and in case any kids are reading this, what happens to most abusers is this:

Speed-induced bruxism (jaw-clenching) is bound to fuck your teeth up over time, too, especially if they're already weakened by bad diet and general poor hygiene.
I don't really buy the whole "meth makes you really ugly" argument, it's more a question of being really really poor and having a drug problem (plus years of malnourishment) is what does it.
I've been bitched at about grinding my teeth by all kinds of dentists, but one finally told me it's probably done mostly in my sleep so I'd have to wear a mouth guard to bed if I really wanted to stop this.
ya i was thinking that too. if you took care of yourself in all other ways you can look normal for years and for some decades (as you progressively rot on the inside and lose touch with your humanity)
that tweak feeling is pretty nice though as i remember... like a calm energetic focus for me. much much better than coke which just makes me fidgety nervous and can't concentrate worth shit.
funny i'm typing this shit cuz a few hours ago i was head to toe in adidas jogging around Hakeshermarkt and finishing with a stop at the BIO (health food) shop to pick up raw milk and tomato juice because I'm on day 5 of a fast
was gon ask you about accuracy of that article... the journalistic integrity of Vice shines through again
Yeah, definitely, but I've noticed the worst lockjaw with MDMA!
You don't say, I used to get through five packets of Wrigley's Extra in a night. Still, not as bad as this one guy I met who'd been doing pills since he was 13 and his jaw muscles were so huge they'd changed the shape of his face, you could actually feel them through his skin like he had a jawbreaker lodged in each cheek.
