If you sell crack or cocaine and end up making a decent amount are you immune from being convicted? Like your money just buys a dream team or something and you get off with a year long sentence or something? I'm not saying like super rich or successful just decent.

How do you expect to hire a dream team being a decent dealer. Think this through before you end up anally raped in jail.

Start off by watching every drug crime documentary and learn from their mistakes. Only takes once to get caught.

I have no intention on selling drugs

I just heard in rap music they said they got rich selling crack and they have money and lawyers so nothing happens to them

Lmao.

Most mainstream rappers don't sell drugs and usually come from a decent household. They just make cool nigger beats music because it's easy to do and sells to suburban kids and niggers.

>>972712
No, that's not how it works. With cocaine, you eventually distance yourself further and further from deals and essentially insulate yourself. I still have no idea who my dealer is. I got the number from a VP at a large financial institution, and this guy sends a different person to my place each time. Always very professional young guys. I couldn't roll on him if I wanted to.

Money can get you pretty far if the justice department does come down, but if you're that high up; someone will tip you that it's coming, you should have a front business to claim legitimate profits, and you might be able to pay for enough counsel to help it. This isn't the moderately successful level, though.

All the attorneys in the world can't really help you if you're found in a room with scales, bags, and a few keys of coke.

Back. I actually made a lengthy guide to this shit once. I'll repost it.

Let's begin with an analysis of basic drug dealing at the retail level and work from there, using magic mushrooms and marijuana as our basis of analysis. A note about pricing to keep in mind as I explain this is that in some areas the pricing of these particular drugs flip-flop, match at the lower price point, or match at a higher price point depending upon their relative scarcity and competition within the market.

Weed: The first ounce and up

Your typical, entry-level pot retailer will start by buying an ounce, referred to in most places as a zip, weighing approximately twenty-eight grams. Using a scale they will break it up into grams, eighths, and quarters of an ounce for sale to customers. The price of this ounce will, with great variance depending upon the quality of the weed and the market, will be between $250 and $350. Most retail level dealers in weed or shrooms buy either ounces or qps (quarter pounds, four ounces) because of their affordability and ease of liquidation for those starting at the bottom of the chain.

The typical price in most areas where marijuana is illegal is at about $20 per gram of weed, with price breaks given for customers at the eighth, quarter, and half ounce levels. Typically an eighth of weed (3.5 grams) will run $55-$65, depending upon quality and what sort of a break the dealer is willing to give in a fluctuating market. Quarters will run around $100, but most customers do not buy quarter ounces and in markets where supply is scarce dealers prefer not to sell quarter ounces for obvious reasons due to steep opportunity costs.

contd
>>
>>973280

The typical return on an ounce will range $560 (all grams sold) to $480 (all eighths sold) all the way down to $400 (all quarters sold). What is most likely is a return of $500-$520 in most markets where eighths and grams are primarily sold. This means that if an ounce of mids (slang for weed of middling grade, just below kush but above reggie and well above dirt weed) is bought for $250 the initial investment is doubled after the product has been liquidated at market. This means that the average profit from the sale of a single gram is $10 and up for mids, and less than $30 per sale of an eighth. The average time that it takes to get a return on investment on a mere ounce is dependent upon the market and one's customers, but liquidating an ounce within a week should not be difficult if one knows enough smokers, especially if one intends to become a serious dealer. The number of transactions will typically range from 8-28, averaging somewhere under twenty sales requiring less than an hour of effort each. The labor investment is somewhat less than that of a part time job, and if one is already inclined to socialize with those who would be customers then the opportunity cost of drug dealing is quite low.

The average rate of profit from selling drugs at this level makes no secret of why it is so appealing: finding an ounce is relatively simple, ounces are reasonably affordable, and the return on investing one's time into drug dealing far and away out-competes the returns of working a job at minimum or even union wages very quickly, especially if one is able to liquidate an ounce over the course of a few days to a week with little effort over time.

cont'd
>>
>>973283

The next step in the life cycle of most retail level dealers is moving from an ounce to a qp. A qp of weed at the listed street prices will typically sell for $800-$1,000, resulting in a significant price break for our retail dealer. Using our scale of returns from the previous section, these four ounces are going to net roughly $2,000 in returns, and if we assume that the price was $800 for a qp of mids, then we see a profit of $1,200, which means that ROI is 2.5x initial investment. Dealers who buy a qp can typically liquidate that amount at market in full over the course of about two weeks, making their effective income from marijuana alone $600 per week. Compare this to our above weekly zip-flipper, who turns a profit of roughly $250 weekly, and the annual difference is that of $12,500 annually to $30,000. For comparison that is the difference between working a part time job at around minimum wage versus working full time at $15 per hour. The promotion from part time retailer purchasing one zip at a time to a dealer buying a quarter pound at a time and selling more aggressively is a substantial one, and it is among the smallest transitions in the drug game, not even a step past retail. Beyond this point we enter the various tiers of the wholesale market, including supply, distribution, and growing, but before we get into that we're going to discuss the retail of another soft drug and draw some comparisons with marijuana.

There will be a quiz later.

Mushrooms: Why a cheaper drug is often more profitable

Psychedelically mushrooms typically sell by the eighth (2 grams of dried shrooms is typically required for a high, with a full eighth required for full hallucinations). The price per eighth is $30, with grams being rarely sold but priced at $10 per gram. This is half the price of weed above, but the profit from mushrooms is still respectable due to the structure of sales.

How can this be so? The price of a zip of shrooms ranges from $120-150 for good shrooms depending upon the supplier and the competitiveness of the market, and with shrooms retailing at $30 per eighth the average return on an ounce will be $240. This means a profit of $90-$120 is typical for flipping an ounce of shrooms, which at first appears to pale in comparison to the profits from selling weed. However, what one should look at is the volume of sales and the profit per sale to get a more accurate picture of the return gained from selling shrooms. Shrooms virtually ALWAYS sell by the eighth, and the profit per sale is virtually always at $11.25-$15, whereas the already mentioned profit per gram of weed is less than $10, meaning that the profit cycle of shrooms is much quicker and the profits per sale are more efficient. If we scaled the market cycle of shrooms to fit the market cycle marijuana, we would see 28 sales of shrooms net a return of $840 with 28 sales of weed netting a maximum return of $560.

>$20/gram
>$55-60/eighth

It's ~$10 and ~$35-40 in Canada, respectively.
>>
>>973289

Something to factor into the above equation, however, is the fact that shrooms are both stealthier to grow, grow in bulk more quickly, and typically have their price depressed because they are grown by so many people. It takes approximately a month to grow a jar of mycelium from spores and substrate (where mushrooms come from), and approximately a week from cold shock for there to be the equivalent of a pound of fruited mushrooms from said jar's grow. When dried that pound typically reduces to around two ounces. It takes two jars of mycelium grown to maturity and cold shocked to fruit a dry qp weekly. The result is that the dealer has a product that they can retail for higher profits, and eventually begin to wholesale.

Consider the profit from the following scenario: rather than specializing in weed, our fledgling retailer opts instead to grow his own mushrooms. Inoculating only a single jar of substrate with spores, our entrepreneur sets up a self-renewing system where he can continue growing perpetually at a rate of two dry oz weekly at negligible, and he opts to retail them. Comparing the sale of one ounce of marijuana purchased through a supplier as above to the sale of one ounce of homegrown shrooms, we see the following rate of comparison: the shrooms require only eight sales to fully retail and net a profit of $240, while the weed is likely to average eighteen sales and net a profit of $270. Continuing with the comparison, the sale of the homegrown, full pair of ounces of shrooms would mean sixteen sales per week with a profit of $480, while the sale of an ounce of weed would compare even more unfavorably with at least two more transactions required and $210 less profit.

For the above reason, the price of shrooms is typically lower than that of weed due to more producers resulting in a flush supply due to the above economics.

Again, there will be a quiz later. Now we will begin discussing advanced retail before we move up a level.

>>973292

Advanced Retail: Where the actual hustle and flow begins

Suppose that our hypothetical retailer in the above examples realizes that he doesn't have to choose between the two above business models, and in fact realizes that his products, mushrooms and weed, synergize because they are not direct competitors (getting high and tripping aren't the same), and that he can do both. What would happen then?

Well, suppose that our young black marketeer begins by flipping an ounce at a time, but as his customer base grows and his first batch of shrooms matures, he graduates to buying qps and begins flipping two ounces of weed and two ounces of shrooms weekly. What is his projected profit?

There is the $1,200 bi-weekly profit from selling the weed, and the weekly $480 profit from selling the shrooms. This averages to $1,080 as a weekly income, and assuming a fifty week work year our low-level drug retailer is making a profit of $54,000 yearly. For comparison, a union job earning $25 an hour with a forty hour work week makes $50,000 yearly, but such well paying are rarely available especially as entry level positions in today's post-industrial America.

The conclusion that we reach is that low-level retail of marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms, two of the softest drugs on the market, offer an income comparable or superior to that of the fabled blue collar factory jobs of the bygone era with less physical toil and less strenuous hours. The downside is that the risk of arrest, death, robbery, or injury is much greater, however with a collapsed industrial sector especially in traditional manufacturing areas such as Detroit, it is little wonder that the labor market has gravitated towards black market drug dealing.

This is the basic entry level position dealing soft drugs. For ease of digestion we will be moving "up the chain" from this perspective, harder drugs such as cocaine will be covered separately as the economics and dynamics at play are fundamentally distinct.

Supply: Sizing up to ounces

[It bears telling that in my observation, about the time that one is preparing to move up from retail to supply is about the time that one has made enough money that people start looking to rob you, and where one starts to get caught up in the politics of the drug game. I will cover those concerns in a different section, but keep them in mind.]

It is likely that at some point our hypothetical retailer will find himself with more drugs on hand than he can move, either because people aren't regularly buying all of his shrooms, he's chosen to inoculate more than one jar at a time, or any number of other factors. Being acquainted with a mid-level supplier and with a network of people interested in drugs, it is even likely that at some point he will be approached by someone looking for a zip. It is at this point that he may begin to make the transition upwards in the criminal underworld.

Suppose that our entrepreneur has saved up enough spores at this point to inoculate five extra jars. That's an extra ten ounces weekly that he simply doesn't have the clientele to move, but he can begin selling those ounces to other dealers at market cost ranging from $120-$150 per zip, or for a particularly large order $400-500 for a qp of shrooms is fairly typical depending upon competition.

[It should also be noted that this is also a fairly apolitical way to being moving up the chain, as violence around shrooms isn't particularly heavy, shroom grows are stealthy, and police don't consider them to be a high priority.]

>>973294
Stop. You're not an expert in drugs, you fucking bum. now fuck off.
>>
>>973297

Our black marketeer is now earning an extra $1,200 weekly from the five extra jars that he keeps growing, supposing that he can find enough other dealers to take them off his hands. Suppose that our black marketeer is now interested in selling ounces as well, and has enough saved to begin buying pounds. Let us further suppose that one of his suppliers , fortuitously, has either moved up to distribution, has begun growing, or was willing to introduce him to a distributor. Weed costs $2,000-$3,000 per pound depending upon quality, with the high end of the market selling for potentially much higher than that.

Now, our black marketeer decides to buy a pound of mids and sell ounces and qps at the previous prices that he was buying at. Let's price this pound at $2,000 as it isn't quite high enough quality to be fire stuff. He sells this pound (16 ounces) in the form of zips and qps. That's a high of $4,000 for 16 sales, or $3,200 for 4 sales. Profits would range from $1,200 to $2,000. Suppose that he finds a dealer willing to service his previous retail clients, and another willing to take a qp, while the other eight ounces he moves to smaller time flippers who sell only part-time. He earns $3,600 from the sale, which is a profit of $1,600. Suppose that it takes him a mere two weeks to flip this pound. Suppose that his sale of shrooms will mirror this, with the sale of two qps and eight ounces weekly. Our dealer adds $1,760 to his profits. The combined total income is $5,360, and the net profit is $3,360 over the course of two weeks, or $1,680 weekly. The combined number of sales needed is twenty over two weeks or ten a week, compared previously to 104 bi-weekly or 52 weekly.

cont'd
>>
>>973299

In summation our black marketeer is making $600 more per week with only ten major sales to plan around, freeing up a large amount of his time to engage in management level decisions. It also means an increased level of heat, as suppliers are who the police are really after on their way up to major distributors, growers, and importers. His annual income has ballooned to $84,000 annually assuming a 50 week work year. For comparison, the national average income of a civil engineer is around $84,000 annually working full time. With no degree, a mid-level supplier flipping a pound of weed and a pound of shrooms over the course of two weeks is able to make an income equal to that of a civil engineer. No degree required, merely risk. This is the first real promotion in the drug game. These are among the softest drugs that one can deal. The massive profits involved in the industry virtually guarantee that the drug trade will never be eliminated.

Now suppose that he doubles his number of buyers over the next few months, and subsequently doubles his shrooming. He clears a pound per week of each, a gross take of $5,360 weekly, and $3,360 profit weekly. That is a gross income of $168,000 yearly. For comparison, an average chief executive makes an average of around $168,000 annually.

Again, there will be a quiz later.

>>973300

Distribution: A small grow

Suppose that politics align and our entrepreneur makes his way up to distributor. Suppose that he decides decide to start growing his own weed and selling it to suppliers, who in turn sell it to retailers. After all, he requires shelter from law enforcement and it will save him time.

In the major leagues, something to remember is that growers are very rarely brokers, who usually hire smugglers, and they usually sell to distributors, but for brevity's sake we will assume that we have a distributor on our hands who is growing his own product, which is common enough. I'd rather abbreviate this part in order to get to an explanation of cocaine etc than go into nebulous market arrangements at the upper levels.

Suppose that our distributor is growing plants that yield approximately one elbow (pound) of mids per plant, and it takes about three months to grow each plant. Suppose that he has a supply of five dealers to start with who clear a pound every two weeks. The demand that he has is then for forty five pounds over a three month period, which will require forty five to fifty plants. Assuming a low cost guerrilla grow or a grow op in a rental property costing around 10k yearly, such a yield should be possible. The total number of pounds sold would approximate 180-200, which translates to $360,000-$400,000 per year minus the cost to grow, which would be quite low. At this level the most important thing would be managing risk, which means hiring enforcers (which he already likely hired at an earlier level) and managing political relations with other groups. Minus costs our dealer is bringing in well over a third of a million dollars annually, with the possibility of that number going up with more territory captured and a widening of his distribution network.

At this point we've reached a nebulous point in the game with spies, cartels, criminal distribution networks, and others. But enough about that, now I'll explain cocaine.
>>
>>973302

Cocaine: The first 28 grams

The average price of cocaine per gram that I will be using is $100. For especially pure stuff or low-supply areas the price can shoot up to $200, or with particularly shitty coke or saturated areas you might find grams for $55 or $60. There is always some smart ass who replies to being told that a gram is $100 with "hah, I can find one for $45" without ever realizing that said gram is cut to 1/3 of what the $100 gram is but costs 1.5x as much for the same weight of actual coke. Coke purity, coke quality, and coke price fluctuate like crazy.

[Note that heroin works like cocaine, but the average price is about $200 making it roughly twice as expensive.]

A zip of decent coke is going to cost about a grand. Our intrepid entrepreneur starting up the chain will have twenty eight grams to start with, but that number will shift because snow can be cut, and the market frankly expects it to be.

Suppose that when he gets his hands on it the purity will rate from 50% to 60%. Suppose that he cuts that ounce to 35 grams (an extra seven grams), making the purity 40% to 48% upon retail. Being intelligent, our dealer cuts it with caffeine, a mild stimulant itself that will partly mask the dip in quality to most users.

Cocaine is usually sold in grams ($100), t's (1.75 grams at $150-160), and eightballs (3.5 grams at ~$300). Our black marketeer is going to be able to sell ten eighths from his ounce, netting him ~$3,000 return on a $1,000 investment, or potentially up to a $3,500 return on his investment. Profit would be $2,000-$2,500 per ounce purchased. The time that it takes to move an ounce would be within a week. This puts our dealer's profits at a minimum of $100,000 per year starting out assuming a fifty week work year. Compare our starting pot dealer who only earned $30k a year moving qps of weed and you see why cocaine is such a highly sought commodity for dealers.
>>
>>973303

It bears keeping in mind that the coke game is incredibly aggressive. If you're on the internet reading about this on your computer screen you probably don't have the personality to survive for more than a month in the coke game before somebody robs, rapes, or kills you over territory. Low level retailers who live in middle class or upper class white suburbia might be able to skate by without that worry for a while, but drug dealing much less cocaine dealing is probably not for you if this in any way applies to you. Organized crime is very real and potentially very scary, and your average person doesn't stand to gain much by stepping on their toes.
>>
>>973305

Cocaine: Higher levels

The next step, logically, is buying a quarter kilo (a kilo is a bird) for around $7,000, which is a price break of around 2k on around 9 ounces. If stretched to ten ounces and sold as to the above formula over, say, two months, the profit comes to around $150,000 per year.

Our dealer hasn't even moved to supply yet, and his income is comparable to that of of a mid-level supplier of softer drugs.

....and I won't be explaining moving zips and birds of coke, because that goes beyond the scope of what I am communicating.
