Breaking News:Dangerous Delays: What Washington State (Re)Teaches Us About Cash and Cannabis Store Robberies [REPORT]

What's a gram of cocaine go for where you live?

Posted in:
Drug czar John Walters is making noise this week about how a decline in cocaine availability is causing price increases. Walters always jumps on these price blips to tout the success of US eradication and interdiction policies...then the prices go down again. We will see what happens this time. In the meantime, I wonder what cocaine prices are in your neighborhood. I lived in Austin in the 1980s, and a gram of cocaine (usually obtained from a Nicaraguan college student...go figure) went for between $120 and $150. Just last night I was on the phone with folks in Austin, and they report that a gram can now be had for $40. Gee, maybe it's up from $35 last month; I don't know. But the long-term trend is undeniable: Down in price by about two-thirds since the '80s. What are cocaine prices like in your neighborhood? Historically and currently. Let's get us a little unscientific survey going.

In Beantown

from what I hear: $125/ an 8 ball.

That's hilarious. For

That's hilarious. For Boston, first off, it's not good quality cocaine. Secondly, it is from $200-$240 for an 8ball. It is ridiculous.

Yeah I go to school there.

Yeah I go to school there.  Shits mad expensive.  I generally pay between $80-$100 a gram and the $80 price I get soemtimes is because I'm in the same frat as the dealer.    Guy above me has it spot on for 8ball prices and its usually cut.  I'm thinking that all that shit gets bought up in New York CIty as it makes it way up from the South or through the port and then what little makes its way up to Boston is just priced up the ass.


^ this is spot on.  $200-$240 for an 8ball.  And the only time I get $200 is when I get from the guy in my frat as a brotherhood discount.  I'm guessing what comes up from the South all gets sold in NYC with not that much pushed forward to Boston which sucks.  It's usually cut pretty bad here too.

Just a question

Go downtown. Make eye contact with a beaner and prepare to get taxed. Highly taxed. Two major busts in 30 days!


Ayy one of my buddys bough 4 and a baby, i was wondering how much coke is that? like what is a baby in coke terms?

a 'baby' is half an ounce so

a 'baby' is half an ounce so 4 and a baby is 4.5 oz (127.6 grams )

Which in my book would be one hell of a 3 month binge.

not even bro

Ok no an oz is 28 grms and half of that would be 14 gs. Your obviously not very smart when it comes to things like this. Also all the coke in boston is shitty unless u order it bottom line. U can get anything in high quality if you know the right dource to get it...mdma coke lucy ect...


Umm...a baby is 9 ounces...( a quarter chicken/bird...since a chicken/bird is 2.2 lbs (kilogram) or 36 ounces...u dumbass fuckin wanna be drug dealer. U sound stupid as fuck so just stop. All y'all mfs sound stupid AF. ERRBODY WANNA BE A DOPE BOY. Y'all pathetic just give up.

I'm over here reading 50 n 30 a gram of some 90%...muthafuckaz ain't gotta lie to kick it. Dope game ain't as fun as It looks or presented as. Life aint peachy n rosey like on tv. You better know your risks n consequences that come with whatever you doing. Your life n freedom is always on tha line. Y'all need to sit tf down in ya quiet suburban houses, n drink ya big boy juice. Tf wrong wit yall. Gotdamn internet thugs...i meant wannabe's. If you wasn't born in tha struggle, stick with ya 9-5, or live off y'all mommy n daddy's earnings...real shyt. Rap music ain't a painting for everybody to live by, stop tryna live in a culture yall know nothing about. I apoligize for the rudeness, but stupidity n ignorance are my biggest pet-peeves...

Lmao...OoK dude... Are u sure

Lmao...OoK dude... Are u sure u just didn't hear fo and a baby on a young jeezy song? And if not...why wouldn't you just ask "your buddy" fkn loser


in vegas i used to sell weed and pills and i found this vato mexican guy who was a real big drug runner who sold good coke that was like 85 or 90 per pure and he sold it for 300 an ounce

western new york

100 bucks for a gram


After reading about the cost of cocaine. IT'S SICKING TO SEE HOW BOLD PEOPLE ARE ABOUT PRICING AND LOOKING FOR CONNECTIONS.!!! Hey get a life and please get some HELP!!!!!!! The world would be a better place without drugs. I hope that one day god will make it so . Yes; I hope and pray that one day we can live drugfree. It's just the way I feel.

I can agree to an extent.

I can agree to an extent. Weed ain't a drug, and the Bible states it 3xs. So weed was apparently given to us by Our Heavenly Father. And who are you to judge the other? If you lived a day in the same struggle as the people you bad talk towards for doing drugs, you might actually understand why they do them. Some people ain't emotionally/mentally strong you selfless fuck!

Seattle - Summer 08 pricing

1g = $40 to $50 depending. Mainly decent quality, some very good.

8b = $130 - 160

Seattle Back in the House!

40=g of w
30=g of b


with all the busts in mexico, a recent bust of 5 tons like 2 weeks ago it has more than doubled from a year ago.last year a kilo could be purchased in mexico in a border town where i live although i lie in the american side for 8k...last month it was going for 15k....and this month is running for 20k.... That is for it in the average oz is kosting $600-$700...last year you would get it for $250-$300.... Prices have started to go up really quickly in the past months...So a 20 or so they call it cause it is usually 1/4 of a gram.... If you buy a gram which they will actually give you .8 runs for about $60 (this is as of now) 8 ball runs for 120.... an ounce for like 800.... This are for the prices on the american side... so a key should be selling for around 30k in the sstates.... Remember this prices have just changed.....and we ar talking of about 80-90% pure.... Cut coke is really cheap ounce for $250
