Wink Kind of sad/kind of funny

My AD told me recently about her abf going to Flint to pick up some crack. Seems the guys he bought it from ripped him off. Instead of crack they had crushed some popcorn kernels and sold it as crack. The sad part is the abf still tried to smoke it. Marle

It is sad. I can't imagine being so desperate for that "feeling" you'd try to smoke it anyways.....

it is so common like cinder said, i've gotten a few suprizes myself back in the day. i tell you it does make you want to quit and go to rehab. its so sad, but unfortunately, if theres money, they'll just go back for more.

No, but he sure was jonesing. It takes about two hours to get there from where he lives and he was going through his lean period as far as cash. In fact he drove there to buy $30 worth of crack. Probably cost him that much in gas. He went to the dealers house and there were two guys outside that he didn't know but bought from them anyway. I am sure those two guys were addicts who needed money for crack too. Marle

its good that he's not really one of those crazy kind of addicts or that he didn't know right away, that kind of junk can get kind of dangerous for a dealer. people have gotten killed over stuff like that. now thats the sad part. they had to have been addicts, i'll bet they probably were no where to be found when he went back, huh

I was rereading this and remembering something. I got Saturday detention for a month (at 13)for rolling up parsley flakes and selling it to some biker dudes in front of school. The guys bought it and then told the principal after trying to smoke it.
