    Stamp bag collection

    Very interesting article about a guy who lives in new york and has been collecting heroin stamp bags since the 80's. Very cool artwork on some of these bags.

    I, too, have a collection. I keep one of every new stamp.

    some of them are photographed on bluelight, and can be found by searching amblerg or heroin.
    my parents are like "what the FUCK is wrong with you?", i say nothing, heavily fucking slurring my words, eyes bloodshot and barely open, and continue eating like nothing happened, with chicken grease and mashed potatoes stuck to my fucking face.

    Re: Stamp bag collection

    I used to want to keep my stamps but it would NOT have been a good idea. Mrs. LE is wise to what they are and what comes into them!

    I do have this habit of saving all my old Rx bottles; I don't even know why! I'm also a packrat so that might explain it to a degree.

    Oh yeah, anyone know where dealers or baggers get these baggies? Wouldn't it be kind of a red flag--don't you think the DEA would watch whomever sells these things? Or do they have a way to manufacture them discreetly or something? Anyone know about this?

    Glassine stamp bags as well as plastic zip bags, sandwich bags etc have legitimate uses other than dope.

    These products don't need to be made clandestinely.

    They are called "stamp bags" because their legitimate use is for postage stamp storage. The actual bag is called a "Stamp" bag because you put stamps in them, not because it has something stamped on it.

    I've never seen a stamp bag personally. They don't use those around here. Everything is folded up in a piece of paper like a lottery ticket or in a tied off piece of a sandwhich baggie. It's just not very creative I don't think. But asking for different "stamps" and referring to it that way, no. It's not like that here. It's all called the same thing, not by any type of brand name.

    On Junkylife there used to be a blogger there named Emerald who had yummy pictures of bags.

    That is real cool. Interesting. I don't do heroin but love collecting, hence my s/c , I collect barbiedolls. It must be cool for that guy to go over his bags and be able to recollect a memory or something from that era. Nark-so THAT'S why there called stamp bags.! Thanks...that's been a itch on my brain I've been wanting to scratch.

    Yeah, it's more of like a brand. Like, if the stamp is of a Rolex symbol, you could theoretically ask for a bundle of Rolex. Kind of like with E pills. It's all heroin (hopefully) just different cuts and stamps.
