There is still a percentage of the public that thinks drug dealers are evil souls, preying on the people without self-control,
and more people who think that most drug dealers are selfish and lazy. Ignorance, unfortunately, still pervades our society.
As a result, ethics become doubly important to the drug dealer. It is our responsibility to put the stigma to rest.
Also, cops and narcs alike generally have a choice of who they chase after, and they tend to feel better about themselves
busting someone who doesn't run per business in an ethical manner.
Most of the ethics involved in drug dealing are pretty obvious, but should be stated anyway. Don't rip people off; don't
pad your sacks with catnip or oregano; don't lie about how much it weighs; don't claim something is Alaskan Thunderfuck when
you actually don't have a clue; if getting drugs on the front, repay your debts in a timely fashion.
If you happen to get into the big time, and start using marijuana distribution as a replacement for a regular job, make
sure you keep in mind that you are feeding off a glitch in society, a glitch that destroys countless lives. If you find yourself
with extra time and extra money as a result of dealing, remember to give a little something back to society. Contribute to
NORML or other freedom minded organizations or donate your time to other sources that help the community. If you've been dealing
for more than a few years, there's a good chance the police know about you, and if they see you using your business to do
good things, they're going to spend their time chasing after someone that they could convince a jury is a bad person.
Much of the ethics involved in drug dealing revolve around your attitudes. Make sure you ALWAYS vote for every pro-marijuana
initiative. When you start hoping that it never becomes legal because you're afraid of not being able to make money off it,
you know your moral values are too far off kilter. Money may be a good day-to-day motivator, but the real reason to
sell pot should always be to help fight government tyranny.
Make sure to respect your customers and treat them fairly. Don't give puny sacks to someone just because you think pe's
young and ignorant (or old and ignorant) or don't have anyone else pe can ask. This should go without saying, but don't judge
people based on race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. You are an equal-opportunity dealer.
There will be times when your customers start to irritate you, but you're still under an obligation to be friendly and
reasonable, just like if you were a manager at a clothing store.
I personally feel it's okay to give varying weights to different people depending on how much risk they put you under.
If they can't follow your rules and respect your individual paranoia then perhaps they shouldn't get as fat a sack as everyone
else. But remember to be open and honest about this, and work out a solid system with clearly defined rules.
Some people don't think it's okay to do this and believe you should either sell to a person or don't. If they put you under
too much risk, ask them to change their habits or stop calling. So this option is up for debate.
There is also the issue of addiction, especially if you sell drugs other than marijuana, and other drug-interaction problems.
If someone has a problem with the drug, you're under an obligation to talk to per about it, and let per know you think pe
has a problem and make it clear that you won't be offended if pe stops buying from you. This is why I only sell marijuana,
because this problem rarely, if ever, presents itself. Sometimes people start spending money they can't afford to spend on
marijuana, but if you see someone doing this, simply refuse to front anything to per, forcing per to actually have the money
before pe spends it.
Basically, my point is, don't be a pusher. Don't feed off other people's problems; but at the same time, respect their
right to make their own choices. Marijuana (and other drugs) should make people happy, and if they don't, someone has a problem.
