Why did Todd Skinner narc out William Pickard?
    #15175598 - 10/04/11 10:09 AM (9 years, 7 months ago)

So I watched 'Getting High on Krystle' before I left for college this morning.

And I really never got the reason as to why Skinner ratted out Pickard, it seems like they could have had a really, really good lab going on.
Pickard even created his own psychedelic 'LZD'?

I'd imagine with the extreme amounts of drugs Todd was doing that he lost the ability to think rationally.  She said he'd spend hours doing intravenous DMT and that's in addition to years of high quality, unlimited quantity access to everything.  His brain was toast.  In addition, I suspect every character in this story is a varying degree of scumbag and when you add money, drugs, and egotistical prestige-seeking, its going to get ugly.

Why?

Psychedelic drugs are a double edged sword.

He got extremely paranoid, which can't have been helped by the ridiculous amounts of drugs he was doing, and he panicked. He wanted to save his own ass, it's as simple as that.

Thanks for the replies everyone.
It's just that, they were partners/friends and it just seemed random that Skinner called the DEA before the lab even really started.

man, just watched the film.

Ya know, people hate on Kristle a lot, but honestly, these dudes were inviting tons of girls into their clandestine lab, throwing parties, etc. That's just plain ol' bad security, and they were asking to get busted. I mean, if I were manufacturing drugs I sure as hell wouldn't pick up some 18yo girl from the local strip club and bring her back to HQ!

srsly

she was a dumb kid who got sucked into a situation that would have made anyone crazy. I don't LIKE the fact that she narc'd on Pickard, but it's not like she was the one that initiated the bust. Everyone in that situation was out to save their own asses.

Let's not forget that Pickard himself acted as an informant in a previous case. (edit: I may be wrong about this, can anyone else confirm this with a source?)
