London, UK. The British government has published a ‘best buy’ guide for street drugs in the UK. The table above gives drug users a handy pocket-sized guide to drugs prices in the UK — an absolute must for addicts planning a weekend away, or for drugs tourists to the UK.
Wizarre Borld found a spaced-out junior health minister willing to talk. “This official ‘list price’ for street drugs is part of our anti-crime initiative. Many drugs users are hopeless negotiators, and often a dealer will overcharge them when they’re desperate for a fix. This price comparison chart will enable users to drive down the costs of their substance abuse. And lower costs means lower crime levels because addicts’ habits will be less expensive to feed. This is a win-win situation because it absolves us from having to do anything long-term to support anyone. This is free-market economics at its best. In the future we envisage moving to a weekly price list, broken down by specific neighbourhoods. Ultimately, we would move towards spot prices on each street corner.”
