I don't live in Chi but drive there every so often to score for my friends and I. I get em individually wrapped tenths. Little foil packages we call "tinnies." It's light brown-white powder--some great dope, although I'm sure the tinny method of packaging dope doesn't all come from the same source. But where I get my tinnies, the dope is usually flame. =D
What do tinnes or a bag cost and how much powder is in one tinne? In STL the sell it in #4 capsules (called buttons) for [edit [email protected]]. They barely fill the cap, so when u dump it comes out to less than a 1/8th tspoon. They use dorm or sleepinal to cut it with but most cut it too much and nothing but crap.

U can get a half-a-g of raw for [edit] and a full g for [edit]. It over-priced bs.

We don't discuss prices here. We have one place on BL to discuss American Prices and that is here (http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/showthread.php?t=412840).

Yes people have copped in DC. Please don't use this thread to source or find a place to score. thank you.

Yes people have copped in DC. Please don't use this thread to source or find a place to score. thank you.

again, my bad regarding the DC remark, I should have elaborated more in that message. I used to live in DC 4 a few yrs. and was trying to intro myself and get to know y'all a littl bettr... http://i.bluelight.ru/pi/23.gif

As far as scoring, I'm not stupid... trying to score from the net is askin 4 trouble. I am sure there r certain orgs monitoring this site all the time. Not 2 mention its against the rules... http://i.bluelight.ru/s/eyesclosed.gif

4 the most part, my convos irl rarely involve the discussion of my alter-life, so having a place to chat and share with others alike is a real treat 4 me.

^^^Just try a little bit first to test the purity and go from there. So did you end up approaching the groups of people on the corners who made you nervous which you talked about before?

25-09-2009, 00:05
Yeah, I just manned up to do it, and just said "What's up man?" to a couple people, and the second person just straight up said "blows"....definitely diff experience cuz i've never had to do it like this...but most of these guys are just trying to get paid. I was kinda worried though I would get tar, I guess that's kinda a toss up in Chi, or is one more prevalent then powder?

Left this out, but when we went to exchange he asked "you aren't a cop are you?, I laughed and said "hell no", but still surprised he asked because I doubt a cop would be like "Yes I am", thought that was funny though.

You won't find tar on the corners..at least I don't know a tip that has it… you would have to find A mexican connect and they don't too often pitch on the corner..

And dose wise why not tell us your tolerance first? we cant be making suggesttions on how much you should do b/c well we have no idea how much you normally do..


By you askin that I wonder have you ever done dope before? if so then why are you asking how much to do, i mean you should have an idea if your familier with the drug.

and if you havent done it before... why do you want to use dope? i really hope you didnt come across this site and thought doing dope was cool b/c i wouldnt recommend it to anyone.

We need to know how much is actually in the tinnies and then we need to know your tolerance. Is there enough in the tins for, let's say, a nice sized rail? Or is it a very small amount?

chinky
25-09-2009, 07:58
stop calling them tinnies thats not chicago slang..they are foils.

and most bags have .1 in them regardless in what it comes in because you go by price when dealing on the streets.

25-09-2009, 08:56
stop calling them tinnies thats not chicago slang..they are foils.

I'm not from Chicago. It's my slang, beeotch!
And yes, most TINNIES contain .1 to .2, but the TINNIES may have been cut several times before reaching the consumer.

hungrykid0
25-09-2009, 09:21
so in the foil looked like a good size rail...that seemed like a ton to me cuz I thought foils were single doses.

So yes I've done dope before, but it was hard to get ahold of while vikes and OC's were easy to get a hold of, but now that I live in Chicago I can now get what I would prefer to have and not have to pay a shit-ton of money for something that gets me half the high.

Kinda odd though, because couldn't find pills when I first moved up here, but now wouldn't want to anyway, these foils are way cheaper than any OC would be.

as far as tolerance goes before chicago, smallest amounts could get would be .5 or a whole gram. when I first did it I measured out .10mg and split it into quarters...each quarter would have me nodding off (first time though bunch of puking). That stuff back when I first started doin it then was more brown/tan tint, this stuff I got down now seem more of gray color.

shit I just got out of detoxing in the hospital and got put on a suboxone maintenance program, and am waiting to to be geting put into an inpatient program....but honestly, I don't want to stop completely. It was getting to a point where I was banging it everyday and I even lost my girl over it (another story) so I wanted to cut back on the shit. But, at this point I can't imagine by life completely without dope. I may just start saving subs and using every so often before I get into a program. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do...

27-09-2009, 02:01
so i was finally able to get some decent blows today. my one buddy came through and got me .5 of some stuff from chicago. ive never seen dope like this before. it looks like sugar in the raw the stuff you buy that is really large grains. it smells a little bit like vinegar but i had to do .3 to get a good nod. when i got it it was a solid half g lump.i was wondering if anyone else has ever come across anything like this. oh it is kinda sticky as well..

First, when you start off saying "I'm not trying to source"..that means your sourcing and no one will respond to that.


Second, what makes you think we have advice that isn't already givin in the previous pages?
I mean take a look everypage in this thread is ful of advice, why not ask something specific?

Every single newfag comes and asks for advice instead of reading the thread first and then ask questions that
Aren't answered.


I don't mean to rant its just everyday somebody "asks advice" and is "not tryin to source"

Then what are you doing?

27-09-2009, 04:29
what am i doing???? i am doing exactly what i said. i am looking for advice so i dont get robbed or have my shit fucked up by some asshole. i was looking for advice as far as how to avoid being fucked over or with. i havent ever had to do the big city buying before as i grew up in a small ass state with no city. i never asked anyone for a street name or anything because THAT would be sourcing. so ya like i said i am looking for advice not a hook up.

Is it my screen-name that makes me seem like a little kid, cuz that's just an old handle I never felt like changing. I'm not some punk, besides don't know why your first post is just to say you're surprised I didn't get bitch slapped just for saying what's up to some people and trying to score.

I had to do about half a bag to get a good nod of this now. Before the with the OC's about 60 (40 and a half) mg insuffulated would do it. I don't bang it, I read that although it hits quicker, the bioavailability isn't much different at all.

Also, anyone know the difference between grey stuff and the tan stuff I had before was? Was that just probably the cut?

So your askin how not to get robbed lulz..if we knew that man we would have the answer for world peace..
Come on its really common sense..the area you try and cop in of course is dangerous otherwise every white boy from the suburbs would be w"kin around..

If your afraid of gettin ripped off then your in the wrong game cause that comes with the territory..just use your head man and you will be fine..i

I would worry about jump outs and and the other cops more then the people cause they will pull you over just for being in those areas (its all one way streets)

But I am blunt cause people don't take the time to read the thread and the question they ask has been answered 15x previously. Not to mention the same people break the runs at some point in that post also.

I have one here that Chinky will love!!
I've been in the game a looong time, so long my connect has passed on.
I have been playing the West side K town game for awhile, and it's going horrible.
3 times now. I drive down, make the connect, get the phone.
Then one or two weeks later, the BS starts. Connect says "help I've been ripped off, can I borrow $300", or says "my car died, can I borrow $500". 3 times in a row. Each time I end the relationship. But soon I will run out of spots, or get killed by one of the pissed off connects.
WTF am I doing wrong?? What should I say when this happens?

chinky
27-09-2009, 07:10
first you cant put ANY prices..

second..now that makes no sense.. all im gonna say is if thats true..who cares theres 100s of places to cop just go down to the block if thats what you gotta do.

third now since your trollin GTFO with that bullshit.


and

Tofu..thats your call with your bike joe..i dont have one so i dont know how it is...and with that said i dont normally cop on the block i got a connect who meets me outside the hood...i only go to the block with my friend who likes to cop off his dude

Ok, well first off if I came off scared or worried, of course I'm nervous about a new approach to doing something. That's human nature to feel anxiety when a person places themselves in situations that are new and/or different to them. This type of anxiety is normal social anxiety even in every-day activities, such as when someone would go to start a new job, go on a singles cruise, or even public speaking. I was actually glad you were kind of blunt with me at first about not being so worried (acting like a bitch). Although this type of advice might not have been given with the best tact, you were still being helpful.

Regarding the fentanyl, no one said anything about it except for me. I was trying to have some chicago based discussion about heroin. It was actually all over the news a couple years ago in the chicago papers about a lot of people overdosing because of it, and I was curious as to how other people had viewed it since the media seems to have a fairly single-minded approach to things. Check out this one link.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/06/03/AR2006060300602.html

Now as far as this thread being embarrassing, and a practically a "Heroin for Dummies" thread. That's ridiculous. This thread is called "Chicago--Heroin". That's all it is. Just a thread for bluelighthers in the Chicago area to come and discuss heroin. So, if someone posts in this thread about a rave next week, I could see the issue, but whatever posts related to "Chicago-Heroin", what does it matter how advance of a post it is or how much of a beginner post it is.

I do agree though that yeah, "best practices" is people should checkout some drug basics or drug FAQ's before posting to a more specific thread like this to discuss, but even then there are many general heroin discussions that are answered in a very general matter, and sometimes the outcomes of discussions ina more focused thread like this will issue different results.

Now, I'm not sure what you "have here" that "newfags" are fucking up. It looked to me like it was just a regional heroin discussion thread. So, maybe if people are ruining what you want to come out of this thread maybe you can create a new thread with an explicit declaration and title of whatever criteria it is you are expecting people to adhere by when discussing. Or, instead of bitching about people "fucking this thread up", why not try to guide discussion to more of the subject material that you are wanting to see. That's why I brought up the Fentanyl thing, I knew it was heroin related, I remember reading about in in the Chicago papers and I was interested in discussing that in this thread.

Kid, I m glad u were able 2 get something decent. Bein nervous is a good thang 2 b when coppin. As Chinky said, not only do u need 2 b on guard about bein ripped or robbed, the jump out boyz r always on the roll.

Kid I am also glad to hear u don't http://i.bluelight.ru/pi/19.gif. If u r havin thoughts, please don't. Whatever this life has done 2 u so far i.e. loosing a girlfriend (which I have lost many good women choosin this life instead) will take u down a hole u may never get out of. Also, please do not take me callin u kid as dissin u. Its a very cool handle and I am using to shortin my message as much as possible. However if u prefer I do not call u that, jus let me know.

IMHO, the difference between the beige and gray powder is the way it was mfg b4 it hit the streets... most of the shit is Afghani smack. The chemical compounds that are used to mfg and process the smack could affect the overall color of the final raw product. Other things that can affect the color can b things used to cut the raw product once it gets to circulation. I have brought raw that had a medium brown tint to it and found out it was afghan mixed in with lower quality black tar. Obviously some one had this low quality tar that was hard to get rid of and decided to cut the good afghan h to stretch his profits and at the same time dump his tar that no one was interested in buying. These r strictly my views and observations and should not be taken for anything more than that.

Thanks CadillacRick. I love Cadillacs by the way, would love a CTS. I don't take offense to anyone calling me a kid, I'm actually 27 years old so being called a kid is cool with me.

The rules state "Price discussion: do not post prices. You can speak in general terms about costs rising or falling, but a dollar amount should never be included." That's too bad because that would be interesting to compare parts of the city price-wise to other parts, or even other cities.

Kid I did post STL prices at the MB Damien directed me to.

Here is the link if anyone is interested http://www.bluelight.ru/vb/showthread.php?t=412840&page=14 it should be towards the bottom.

I owned 4 caddys... Most were late model Devilles... CTS is a nice sporty Cadillac, however, most newer caddys have the northstar engine and is highly recommended to use premium gas. A few yrs ago a gallon of premium was going 4 over 4 bucks/gal, so now I drive a jeep (don't ask) http://i.bluelight.ru/s/tongue.gif.

I obtained my handle years ago from the slingers... I would call and anounce who I was, but most had several Ricks they dealt with so they would ask Rick w/ the Cadillac... eventually it would shorten to CadillacRick and eventually stuck.

shit I just got out of detoxing in the hospital and got put on a suboxone maintenance program, and am waiting to to be geting put into an inpatient program....but honestly, I don't want to stop completely. It was getting to a point where I was banging it everyday and I even lost my girl over it (another story) so I wanted to cut back on the shit. But, at this point I can't imagine by life completely without dope. I may just start saving subs and using every so often before I get into a program. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do...

So phantom, I'm curious how your detox and maintenance is going. I've recently got myself into the position where I think I'm gonna have to do much of the same thing. I've been chipping for about a year, but just over the past four months, turned it into a daily habit. I'm using about 6-8 caps a day, just to keep normal. I've thought about going cold turkey, but never made it past a day without.

Anyone else got some advice? It's not ruining my life yet, but I see it going that way. Is it easy to find a suboxone doc and is that the preferred method? My girlfriend was on methadone for a while, but couldn't keep up with it, so I'm not too excited about done.

I dunno... I don't wanna stop, but I don't want this to be a daily thing, just to stay unsick... It used to be fun...

shit I just got out of detoxing in the hospital and got put on a suboxone maintenance program, and am waiting to to be geting put into an inpatient program....but honestly, I don't want to stop completely. It was getting to a point where I was banging it everyday and I even lost my girl over it (another story) so I wanted to cut back on the shit. But, at this point I can't imagine by life completely without dope. I may just start saving subs and using every so often before I get into a program. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do...

I can tell you right now it aint gunna work if you dont really want to stop. You gotta WANT to quit, and for yourself not for someone else, otherwise you're just wasting time and resources.
It also helps if ya use the 12 step program, and addiction is not just about willpower, this is serious shit man. Also educate yourself on P.A.W.S., post acute withdrawal symptoms

If you got insurance man go to a detox/inpatient program til your head gets straight! I suggest suboxone over methadone, I've known people who all of a sudden couldnt get their 'done, and the withdrawal lasted a month. yeah.

Suboxone is a miracle drug tho most definitely, helps withdrawals greaattly, and drastically reduces cravings. Plus they say you cant get high while you're on it, which is bs for me, it jus takes a bit more and doesnt last as long. Also try an wait at least 24 hours after your last H use until you take the suboxone, and the naloxone in the pill knocks the dope off the receptors and can cause precipitated withdrawal, which i hear is no fun.

Again, if you don't want to stop yet, then dont even try. Wait until you really want it, otherwise you most likely wont stop. Addiction is a tricky thing, its cunning, bafling, and powerful! and fuckin patient! Can you tell I jus got outta rehab and have been to wayy too many aa/na meetings? They really do help tho, if you really want to be sober, and work the 12 steps, get a sponsor, and do everything that is told/suggested you do. Good luck, and you're makin the right choice to quit before any serious consequences, it only gets worse man.

i am suprised you didnt get bitch slapped, forget the redtapes they are bunk, a block west has the pink , way better

Dude the pink tapes a block from the reds are about 95% dormin in each foil. The reds are so much better. If you love huge bags of sleep medicine then I guess the pink tapes are for you.

I know this isn't a suboxone/treatment thread and not im not trying to turn it into one. I just wanted to menion that the naloxone in the pill is basically there as a "scare" tactic, according to the manufacturer. It's a great drug to avoid immediate withdrawals, but subs have a withdrawal all their own. Doctors like to say they don't, but they are more drawn out than heroin, and if I was in your position, I would use them for as short as possible. As much as it sucks, the only way to "kick" heroin successfully is cold turkey. I have been trying for 3 years to quit and I always end up back on the block. Good Luck to You.
