I am going to post a few links to some threads that have to do with diesel in the Dirty D. I have read a few posts with some misinformation in them and I am bored so I decided to make this thread. I have had extensive experience with the Chicago and Detroit scenes, so I feel like I am semi-qualified to do what I am doing here.
One main argument that has come up lately has had to do with the origin of the mainly brown, NUMBER 4 heroin that is usually found in Detroit. I came across a post recently where someone had said that "apparently folks in Detroit get Afghani D" and they made the assumption that it was number 3 and that we have to put citric on it. This is untrue. The dope that we usually get needs no citric, or heat for that matter.
I maintain, and there has been evidence shown, that a majority of our H has origins FROM AFGHANI OPIUM... Processed where? Who knows? That is discussed in a thread that I have provided a link to below. The reason I believe this, besides it being reported by numerous sources, is that "some guy I used to know" used to deal with a dude a while back who was of Middle Eastern descent, and he used to have cakes. He informed my friend that those bricks were coming from an Arab/Eastern Asian(Russian?) country. Not Columbia or Mexico as most would assume. Arabs from around here don't fuck with brown people. Period.
The dope usually found in the Metro Detroit area is usually the same as what is pictured in Citrus's thread. I usually cop in bulk/semi bulk and grams usually run no more than a hundo, sometimes less. A 10 gram package usually runs 900. The quality is usually a 7 or 8. Sometimes you get that 9 or 10.
When I can't cop in quantity, I usually score off of the street, and I usually get the same shit, just broken down in 1/10th gram increments, usually sold in folded lotto tickets, or small zip-lock baggies. The quality of known reputable spots is about the same as from a bulk dealer.
I judge purity based on my experience with other shit, mainly pharms, mainly Morphine. When the dope is fire around here, a 60 - 100 mg shot feels like 160- 200 milligrams of M. Which leads me to believe that the dope around here averages 60 - 70% purity.
Almost ALL of the dope that I see, looks identical to the cakes my friend saw at his Arab homeboy's house. I highly doubt that there is very much cutting going on in the Detroit dope game. As it gets sold and resold throughout various suburbs or some shit, I am sure that the purity drops, but if you have a solid connect, you can rest assured that you are getting it how it was intended to be delivered.
The average street prices are between 120 and 150 for a gram... A bundle/jab is gonna run you 100, no freebee's or extra one or two. A single is gonna cost 10. If you are a brother, the dope spot is gonna charge you 6 for a single.
There are spots ALL over the city, usually changing locales when it gets too hot, but usually keeping the quality the same. It is fairly easy to be a junkie in this city. It is fairly laid back, and cops really aren't too much of an issue due to the lack of LE funding.
Anywhoo, I hope that this was informative to the people who wanted to know.
