    Swim was having a discussion with a friend and they came to a point they both disagreed on.

    He is not looking for the purity of a gram of cocaine, but how much dealers typically weigh it out at.

    Swim told his friend that is was actually a whole gram but his friend said it was nearer 0.7 of a gram. Swim is sure this will vary from dealer to dealer, but surely a dealer is more likely to just weigh out the entire gram?

    Any help to resolve this stupid debate would be great, thanks.

    A gram is a gram, period. If you buy 1 gram you should get 1 net gram. Any less and you're getting screwed, any more....well count yourself lucky. Some dealers are greedy and will try to short you....a good scale is a users best friend. There is no debate then.

    Be aware that some will try to add the bag weight to make 1 gram. The bag weight needs to be tared off the scale or not included at all when measuring. This would make buying one gram always weighing out more than one gram when the bag is included.

    Beware of the sneaky cats who try and get you.

    Sitbcknchill is right about this, buyer beware. SWIM says to always take SWIY's own scales along with SWIY to a buy. A reasonable dealer should not have a problem with that. If questions do arise just politely explain that SWIY has had problems in the past and that SWIY does not plan on running into the same problems again. Period.

    If said dealer gets hot and bothered by this course of action...ditch him/her. SWIY does not need hostile or pushy dealers in his/her life. There are actually some dealers out there that will be understanding and compliant. After all, SWIY has to look out for number 1. Please be careful.

    What the hell is a 0.8 gram? A gram is a gram anything less and somebody got SWIY just like Sitbcknchill stated. Scales are any swimmers best friend. I guess not all situations would let SWIY bust out the scales but SWIY should never buy from anyone who says SWIY can't weigh the shit up, that right there is bad news from the get-go.

    0.8 is standard where swim's from ppl and don't sell grams they sell "wraps"

    when swim buys 3.5g then it is "on the dot" as it were but someone who sells full gs is rare

    on that done, this thread won't be going much further.
    a gram is a gram, it can be less or more according to the dealer's whims, street cocaine is cut so we're not talking about pure cocaine HCl concentrations, and cocaine is als sold in different weights / sizes packaging according to geographical location, point, teener, half gram, teener
    which should be discussed in this thread
