I could do a little better if I knew how much cocaine was in a "8 ball" Anyone want to help me cheat on this test?
at 28.x grams per ounce
I thought an eight ball was 1/8 of an ounce, ergo 3.5 grams.
Someone settle this so I won't look the fool the next time I order up some dope.
Well, if the grams are being sold at $42.50 each to Billy, then Jackson should have only paid $148.75 for his larger delivery at the ratio of 3.5 grams per 8 Ball.
Jackson got a $20 break on his volume to go spend on Chore Boy, lighters, and some 40oz for the party.
