Why is E so expensive? I can usually find it for no less then $14 and it goes so much higher. Whats the difference between expensive and cheap pills? Is there really a difference? I know my friend who deals buys them for like $5. Please help cause I wanna make sure I'm not being ripped off or whatever!
Thanks guys

generally MDMA is more expensive than MDEA, MDA, or MDE. It is also not as common as you would expect to find a pill purely made with MDMA. The other versions of it are much less expensive. Also, pills are often passed off as pure MDMA when they also contain speed and caffeine in them to create the speedy effect. But why dealers buy e so inexpensively and we don't? I have no idea -- profit? inflation? http://www.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif Check out that dancesafe site listed under the thread "it's cool, but am I abnormal." that tells you what's in a lot of pills, and how some had nothing!

Good question.
any economics majors know of a way in which we could collectively make the price go down?
I'm broke.

most people are desprite for E, so when a dealer says 20 or 25 they go for it. But if we ALL refuse to pay that much then they will have to be sold for less, but obviously that wont happen. So just work hard during the week cash your check and have a great fucking weekend!

19-01-2000, 21:32
It's called supply & demand. And its being demanded at an expensive rate.
Whats up Chicago!!! start posting pill reports so we know what the fuck is out there. To everyone else please post where your from. Thank You !!
Everyone please to safe. And watch the Rave scene for about 2 months if in Chicago as its going to get worse before it gets better.

19-01-2000, 21:32
I cannot believe they are wining over 15bucks... we pay 30 here... and still that is much cheaper then drinking LOL
I should know... I ran into a few $200 Tabs!
so a mear 30bucks is a gift of GOD Since I have started taking E
PLUR Has been spoken here!!
Be all you can be! Take some E!

21-01-2000, 18:38
you poor americans...
here in sweden i pay MAX $10

21-01-2000, 19:25
Think of it this way....You go out for a night on the town...alcohol is your drug of choice...I guarantee you pay more than 20-30 dollars at the bar or club or wherever it is you go...

22-01-2000, 12:35
hA!!! u comlain for $US15. in sydney (australia) i pay between $20-$25US and ive heard in n.z. its about 30-40US$. anyways, as people say, still cheaper than the bar...

22-01-2000, 12:37
oh...by the way. e is "expensive" cause:
1) its illegal = risks
2) it depends who u know and how many u buy.

22-01-2000, 13:49
It's as simple as supply and demand and also risk versus reward.If your going to sell e is it worth it to you to only make a buck or two per pill if you face 20 years in prision.I think not.Besides I don't know where you live but most I think would be happy paying $14.If you friend sell it for $5 and he's a friend why does he charge you $14?

k, im very new (as in 2 days) and i somehow fell upon this old thread....well anyway. im in chicago and im not sure what your asking about chicago. well the pills that are going around here......
spaulding something : is the big thing around here at the moment. its very new (within a week) and everyone wants it. i had before i even knew it was out. i rolled hard from midnight til six, and felt it for a day or two.
then i ran across some old school 007.
and mollys have constantly been the rave around here, as well as buddahs.
you score in lucky if you pay less than 25 for anything. and i dunno. i just say someone asking whats up in chicago and no reply. WELL IM HERE!!!!! so ill keep the chicago post

07-07-2000, 01:31
Legalize it is the easiest way to bring down the price. No more bunk pills too, no more rolling the dice.
You'd have a pharmicist's recipe for pre-load & post, ensuring for each pill you get the most.

Standerd price here in Canada is 30$cad, 20$ usd... The reason that E is so expensive is because we will pay it =]

You are all bastards http://www.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif
Complaining about $15 pills...
In Tokyo the going rate outside/inside
clubs is never less than \5000 (US$45)!
But I suppose it makes us appreciate it everytime that much more.
Anyway, a cup of coffee is US$6, so we`re
used to it...

Hamlet, If you want to go below $1 per pill, you have to go straight to the source, try hitting the seals and walruses up...I hear they get pills at twenty cents each...plus GST http://www.bluelight.ru/ubb/wink.gif
Toeing the line vs. the "E-Conspiracy"

07-07-2000, 12:27
Drugs have a standard price. You probably knew how much ecstacy cost long before you ever did it, and probably before you ever saw it. People told me, "You know ecstacy? That stuff's like $25 a hit". So when I finally bought some, that's how much I expected to pay.
It's no different with weed or any other drug. Why is a quarter $40-$50? Why is an ounce around $100? Because that's the standard price. Who are you going to complain to?

07-07-2000, 17:18
Because like idiots we are willing to spend 20 bucks on it.... so they charge us 20 bucks for it.
I don't know about you Miss Kitty, but I'm feeling MUCH yummier.

This is a very simple question to answer. I have taken several economics classes and I have learned but one thing!!
People will only sell pills at whatever price you are willing to pay. Most everybody out there who rolls is willing to pay $20 a pill or a little less if bought in bulk.
Stop buying and the price will drop dramatically. But, we all know that's not going to happen!!!

luv rolling
07-07-2000, 23:48
you are all idiots. the reason why ecstasy costs $20 is because there are 5 middle men involved, the chemist, the mafia, the smuggler, the high profile dealer, and your regular everyday drug dealer until a normal person buys it.
Let's Roll!

08-07-2000, 02:11
Are you talkin US?
If I buy like 20 its $400 for top of the line shit! thats 20 a peaice .. If i were to sell them they would be about $30 a peice around here.. or $25. Not a good drug to deal. Unless you get directly from the maker. wicth would sell it to you for around $5 a peice. or less. Remember E has to be shipped around alot!! theres alot of work for one pill!

08-07-2000, 03:10

here in Aus, we are getting jipped
with many bunk pills, and various other over the counter shit- just reprinted for fucks sake
reading the pill repots, america uk etc etc seem to have many good pills
i am very jelous
but yeah, i dunno what our money is worth to yours
but here it is fukn xpensive
i am happy when i pay $35, that is cheap 4 me

If you don't like the price, you can always write a strongly-worded letter to the US branch of The International Controlled Substance Price Commitee. They are usually very helpful and understanding. If you're nice, sometime's they'll give you a coupon! You can write them at... crap, where'd I put that address?
Aim away from face.

14-07-2000, 10:24
here i pay 6 - 10 pounds
the reason you americans pay more is because the scene is younger there in a few years you will catch up with europe
Nothing ventured nothing gained

supply and demand fellas. You go down to ATL or FL and get a nice hook up, you could be paying about 1375$ for a jar (100). But then you have your college towns up north (indiana) that have what people call "farmer towns" where there is nothing, no weed, no e', no shrooms, nothing. you get a buddy that knows folks up there. the people have nothing so they will pay whatever you want for the pill (30-40) my pal can sell beans for up to 45$! so fucken crappy but you make a SHIT LOAD of money http://www.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif
try to get more connections, the price will fall.
Just like if i brough shrooms in this town which none are availble. Price is SELLER controlled, i mean, if it wasnt for the SELLER you wouldnt have it to begin with http://www.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif
ps. i love the 'drug' economy http://www.bluelight.ru/ubb/smile.gif

Ide like 2 say that thats stil cheap
in australia 35 is a good price ( $70 US !)
so yeah u should b stoked !

09-09-2001, 20:53
ok heres how it works where i live.. near new york city
the first guy gets em for like 50 cents a pill, he sells em to the next guy for like 3 bucks a pill, the next guy sells em for five and then i get em for 20...
is this fair i ask you? no, not at all... but the more hands it passes through the more its gonna cost... if you were dealing would you sell it for 10 if you knew you could get 20 for it? ha i wouldnt!
now where i go to college i have a friend whos gonna pay 30 for one pill, i think thats just crazy but as far as that dealers concerned... i wonder if hes looking for a girlfriend haha... ive herd of people paying up to 50 for one pill...
so it all depends on where you are, how many hands it passes through, and how greedy those hands are. if you try hard enough youll find people that will give you deals... someplace we can get 100 for 100, if you buy in bulk sometimes they'll knock down the price...
keep on rollin baby.. and pop one for me cuz im missin e something awful!

10-09-2001, 01:00
Over here I can buy a single pill for £2.50-£5. Thats bloody cheap comapred to america buy your market will mature, it does get cheaper as dealer lower the prices a $ and another goes 2$. always happens.

10-09-2001, 06:24
I have been paying $30 a pill.. but im up here in hick-ville.... no one knows how to party well in northern michigan! its worth the price cuz i have fun, but i spent $120 in 2 days on E. damn.

ar_gee: wouldn't $35Australian be more like $20US?
To those who are posting that they sell drugs - do you really want this information on a publicly accessible bulletin board?
Might just be an idea to edit that out, mmm?
I paid 4 pounds in the UK - about $5.60US. Americans, don't worry, your prices will drop. UK prices used to be a lot higher, 12, 15, even 20 pounds.

11-09-2001, 11:51
Ok heres the score. If you all refuse to pay high prices then your dealer will have to lower them. Its simple economics, if you can charge $30 then you will charge it, if no one will pay over $10 then the they will be sold for 10. I just picked up 15 for £40 thats 58.2069 USD or $3.88 per pill, 'cos people in the UK started reffusing to pay the high prices, the delears in turn had to drop their prices or proffit margins.

most pills made in holland, as UK near by we get em cheap. Not so risky to get em here. As for US, is more tricky. So more costs, more ppl to buy off more overheads bigger price.
But the use will grow and grow, so the drug labs of america will output more, more labs will be set up, outputtin gmore and more. SO as supply goes up, price goes down.
If a big bust is made supply goes down price goes up.
If a big festival is happening, demand goes up, so does price.
If something causes demand to go down, bad pills going about, demand goes down so does price.
Few years will be about $5, i will put money on it.
