    sad that theyre so young. However 10.7 grams doesnt come close to exceeding 1000$, get your facts straight so we can trust you.

  • Hi Jay. I brought your beef to Lt. Brian O’Keefe. Here’s how he answered:
    “Heroin has come down a bit – roughly $80 per gram, so close to 11 grams would be be sold for approximately $1,000 when sold individually. This is street value for it being sold in individual packs, which is typically .2 grams each, or around $20 per bag.The dealer can buy an actual finger of heroin (10 grams for $350-500). Therefore, once he sells the individual bags, the overall STREET VALUE, is roughly $1,000. Make sense?
    You can tell your reader that street value and wholesale value are different! Heroin is getting cheaper.”
