    it is called a 8 ball because a 8ball (3.5g) is 1/8 of a ounce. 28.35g. = 1 oz. (28.35g./3.5g. = 8.1g.)

    Re: 8ball

    I'm sure this could be found with TFSE.

    "Eightball" is short of an eighth of an ounce, or 3.5g. It wouldn't, however, surprise me to learn that "eightballs" purchased on the street typically have less than that amount.

    8 ball with any dealer should be 3.5g (+/- 0.1g). Since I'm sure You is obviously buying his cocaine off the street, you can be pretty certain that every time You arrives to pick up without a scale, he's getting cut at least 0.3g+. Well, that's at least what I've seen in my experience. Always bring a scale - You will intimidate the dealer into an accurate count. ;)

    I have a low tolerance but has used many times over the past couple of years and she finds that if she's doing lines, she has probably never gone over half a gram to herself in a night, and this is on a party night. As a new user You is probably (hopefully) not going on 24-hour binges, so if You uses about as much as I do then an 8-ball should technically last him a week if he was doing it every night.
    You should in no way be going through a gram in a night all to himself unless he has a very high tolerance or is binging, just swim's 2 cents...
