I'll get you Atlanta prices tomorrow. We seized a kilo of black tar a few weeks ago. That's HUGE around here. I've never seen a kilo of black tar before.

Maybe he means not a lot of people use it.

Cities are weird...some are heavy heroin, some are not. There's a little bit just about everywhere. We don't see it around here, or around Athens much. Atlanta has always had it, Cabbagetown being the place where white people seemed to abuse it most. But not excessively, it seemed.

Durham, NC was a heroin town, Raleigh, 30 or so miles away, was not. I think it's because Durham is directly on the road from Washington and Richmond, both of which are big heroin towns.

My information from reports and narcs, and from reading the arrest files in newspapers. Like you said, a kilo is huge for Atlanta, from my rather dated knowledge. It always had its users, but it seemed like it was less per-capita use than other cities farther north.

I bet with the growing illegal Mexican population, it's bound to jump just about everywhere.

a little bit...more scarce than other drugs would descibe it well.

Atlanta prices vary. Per DEA guidelines is 150-2100 PER GRAM. Huge variance. You can always get heroin down in "The Bluff" in ATL. That's pretty much the only place I consistently hear of it being available. I worked the Cabbagetown area from 2000-2003 and didn't see a whole lot of it.
