getting ripped off?
    #1500888 - 04/28/03 04:05 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

AFOAF wanted me to ask this question for him. He gets shrooms from a dealer that lives in his neighborhood but he suspects that he is getting ripped off because the shrooms appear to have been soaked in water and sprinkled with verm to add weight or something. Is is possible that the do0d is trying to make them weigh more with water?

Yes. The dosage should either be based off of a cracker-dry weight, or a fresh rate. An appropriate 8th fresh would be about 35-40 grams.

but if he soaks them in water then you are paying for more than you should be paying for correct?

Very much so. I wouldn't touch them if they were wet. A little vermiculite I wouldn't worry about. Water is fairly heavy though. Bad juju.

Why would anyone buy soggy dried mushrooms though. It seems like that would be a hard scam for a dealer to pull.

forget this connection...... if it ever seems like you're getting ripped-off, just stop dealing with that person and never interact with them again

Either that, or tell him you're expecting 35-40g since they're fresh, and obviously wet.

Shrooms dry up pretty quick so if you dealer is handing you dripping wet shrooms you know something isnt right.

I understand the difference between fresh and dried poindexter. :mad:

it seems alot of you dont understand what I am saying.

I am saying that the shrooms ARE FRESH but my friend thinks that he is INJECTING or SOAKING the shrooms in water to make them weigh more. He sells them by the gram and so if they are $15 for 15 wet grams and he has 15 grams of shrooms and injects them with 5-10 grams worth of water then you are getting ripped off because you are paying for the water injected into the shrooms before purchase.

He sells by the gram wet because 30 grams wet is $30 and 3 grams dried is like $20. He makes more money that way plus he is pumping them up somehow.

who the hell rips people off with shrooms? maybe im in a different crowd but recently afoaf has told around 20 people that he is giving shrooms away for free which he is. there bone dry grown on dung, and are excellent in my opinion. those 20 people probably told there friends as well, so like say 50 people might know of free potent shrooms. afoaf had 6 oz, and still has 4 oz left. he started giving them away i think 3-4 weeks ago. you would think they would sell really quick but.....??? wtf??? i find it funny that dealers are so greedy/hard up for $$$ that they go to these lenghs to bump up the weight,etc to make a couple extra bucks. i didnt really think there was a market for shrooms? i eat them about 5 times a year consuming about say 20g or my homegrown EQ's, thats not a lot. who the hell is able to sell pounds of it? they must know alot of people or something.

well i have never met the guy but AFOAF has and I guess the do0d makes around $2500 dollars a week doing what he does but he is probably just a big bluffer. There is a big market for it in the Central United States. There are alot of people that smoke weed and want to try something else but not to the extremes of cocaine and heroin so they do LSD (none around for 3 years) and shrooms which became available just within the last year or so.

Just tell the dealer that you only want dried.

That or move on
