Assuming the dealer in question was cautious enough not to get caught, what do you guys think of this?
I have nothing to say but this:
Become intimately familiar with the laws in your area. If you are transporting, know the laws in every state along the way. If you can’t know all the laws yourself, find yourself a damn good (discreet) lawyer or law adviser. If shit goes wrong, you do not want to be unaware of your rights.
Well you know I don’t believe the moral implications can be ignored. Not if we want to make a better society for our kids then we were handed. So to me, there are two aspects to it that really matter. What are you selling, and who are you selling it to? If you are selling pot, perhaps shrooms or LSD, well that is a bit different from selling meth, crack, heroin to name a few. Adult people have messed up their lives on pot, but the majority do not, and eventually give it up at some point. Nobody is going to die from pot, unless they toke and drive and that is on their own head. But hard drugs kill, they cause an increase in crime and violence as crack heads do whatever they ‘have to do’ in order to get a fix. And then what about the audience… are we talking adults that know fully the repercussions of their actions or not? When thinking of yourself, if jail time and the shame it would bring to your family and the idea that you might never be able to get a ‘regular’ job again is ok with you, then that is your choice and only you can weigh those factors. Depending on your situation and your family, friends, etc., the personal risk might not seem that bad. But do consider the moral implications even if it is uncomfortable. You have to live with yourself for a long time, so do evaluate what you can actually live with.
I know people don’t like bumping old threads but I feel this is important:
I just found out a friend of mine is in quite a bit of trouble over a lot of acid and shrooms right now, I don’t want to say all is lost but he’s going to have an extremely tough time getting out of this situation to say the least, since the law looks more favorably on violent crime than on the amount of stuff he had. He was pretty cautious, professionally so, but was ratted out by a lower person in his organization.
Whatever you decide to do PLEASE be as careful as possible, the bigger one gets, the more extremely cautious you have to be and “careful enough not to get caught” changes meanings drastically. People who had no reason to fuck you over before will get one if the authorities get to them first, not to mention the usual jealousy, greed, etc.
